The most widely received and completely sold out San Antonio Fashion Awards was held earlier this evening and it was by far, the most exciting and successful ceremony to date! Results came in this year in record breaking numbers from all over the world to set the foundation for what many are saying is the best year yet. Emotions ran high as speeches moved audiences while tourists from all over the united states experienced true swells of San Antonio pride. As usual, the San Antonio Fashion Awards launched big news about our City. This year, the San Antonio Street Art Initiate announced its launch of San Antonio’s largest outdoor mural gallery, concentrated in one area and already in progress with its Phase 1, happening now in Midtown. Also announced was the celebration and broadened awareness about Diwali, a city sponsored event that happens to be the largest Indian festival in the nation. As a grand finale this year, Agosto Cuellar was honored this year and given the first ever Cultural Pioneer award. Originally told that he was to present an award, the surprised and emotional Agosto Cuellar took to the stage tonight and celebrated among his peers, mother and father. It was truly a moment long overdue for the fashion veteran.
This year, Breakout Fashion Designer of the Year was Daniel Hinojos. His collection took to the stage and filled the air with his signature “glitz & glamour”.
