ABOUT OUR KICK OFF EVENT

TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ strives to bring awareness to our Texas fashion professionals, connect our network to new designers from around the world and advocate for your fashion entrepreneur growth, not just for one night, but for the entire year.

Patrons are invited to learn about fashion design, fashion industry, our Texas fashion scene and our visiting fashion industry colleagues from around the world. Industry professionals and patrons will witness incredible new designs during our breathtaking fashion shows advocating for the Sustainability Movement and support our featured fashion designers and brands directly by shopping at the many pop up shops made available onsite at the beautiful San Antonio River Walk.

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.

Why participate now? Well TFII is excited to announce that we have made history with the Nation’s leading organization for the American Fashion Industry, the CFDA. 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.
