WHO IS TFII?
For far too long Texas has never been synonymous with fashion or fashion industry. We are changing that! Launched in 2019, TFII serves as the state’s official non-profit dedicated to the positive growth of the Texas fashion industry with a focus on your fashion business growth. Our innovative programming strives to serve fashion careers and fashion entrepreneurs so that Texas fashion industry can grow and prosper.
TFII IS PART OF
TFII now offers groundbreaking and innovative access to the CFDA network through us so that we can offer even further support for unparalleled fashion business advocacy.
ABOUT OUR EVENTS FOR FASHION DESIGNERS
TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ strives to bring awareness to our Texas fashion design professionals, connect our network to new designers from around the world and advocate for your fashion business growth, not just for one night, but for the entire year.
Patrons are invited to learn about fashion design, our Texas fashion designers and our visiting fashion industry colleagues. Industry professionals and patrons will witness incredible new designs during our breathtaking fashion shows and support our featured fashion designers directly by shopping at the designer’s pop up shops onsite.
Funds raised during TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ go towards the Texas Fashion Industry Initiative mission and strives to produce programming for fashion careers and fashion entrepreneurs. Programming includes business education, certifications for job placement, artist rights advocacy programs, youth summer camps and more.
Now, in conjunction with the CFDA and the CFDA Connects program, through TFII, fashion week participants can have access to opportunity that advocates for them to reach new levels of professional growth.
Furthering the CFDA’s mission to strengthen the impact of American fashion in a global economy, CFDA Connects was created to skill share and connect domestic markets to the pulse of the American and global fashion industries through CFDA resources. This includes professional and business development, education, trade events, supply chain/local manufacturing, social impact, and sustainability. CFDA Connects officially launched this past April with ten select regional organizations across the U.S. gaining its support, with the Texas Fashion Industry Initiative serving as its founding member and its program, TEXAS FASHION WEEK™, serving as the resource the CFDA will use to discover new Texas talent. We would love to advocate for you. Apply now for a chance to join us.
