At Texas Fashion Industry Initiative, we are committed to a fair voting process and have revamped the selection protocol to ensure fair and merit-based results.

Nominations will be open to the public throughout the month of August. We highly encourage all fashion professionals and enthusiasts to nominate those who have exemplified high performance during 2022.

The panel of experts in the Texas Fashion Industry Board of Directors will also nominate professionals in the fashion industry across the state of Texas then deliberate and vote on the nominees based on merit and criteria, such as current work throughout 2021, by our Board of Directors, which is composed of Texas-based industry leaders with over 40 years of experience, combined.

The panel will be voting on during Sept. 1-15th and we will announce the winners at the Texas Fashion Industry Awards™ ceremony on October 7th as the closing of TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ 2022 at the Tobin Center for Performing Arts on the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX!
