12 Dec New streetwear brand Amiré sets out to host events that showcase like-minded brands.
There is a new wave of streetwear squads hitting the Texas fashion scene and the name spurring up buzz is, Amiré. Eric Lugo, a young, up and coming streetwear designer from this past Fall’s Fashion Week SATX, has seen a surge of new fans since the showcase (San Antonio Spurs player Patty Mills included) and since the event, has not slowed down one bit.
On top of releasing his Fall ’19 collection, this head designer for the brand, has since then, launched an online concept campaign featuring images in traditional magazine format (“Vol. 1/Nov Issue” hints to possible future launches), released a set of accessories and even most recently, set out to host an event in order to create an opportunity for like-minded brands.
In attempt to share the exposure, he invited others he shared the Fashion Week SATX stage with, to participate in a culture pop-up. Creatives like milliner, Rosa Isela and longtime streetwear brand, Vida Co. were among the talents showcased, as well as a variety of vintage stores, independent artists, designers, and a non-profit organization specializing in sneakers and ways to give back.
Lugo, a 22 year old fashion designer, wants to be able to support a new generation of fashion innovators in San Antonio, Texas. Through his efforts, he is showcasing them to the public with a carefully curated group of brands offering them a chance to share their story, what their efforts are, and how it will benefit the public. When we asked Eric what fashion meant to him personally he said “Fashion is meant to be bold. Be different, and be the Rockstar you were meant to be.” And he definitely fits the bill on that quote. Lugo, wonderfully eccentric, and stylish in his own right, succeeded in bringing together a group of edgy brands and artistic people to celebrate this idea.

The event took place this past Saturday, late afternoon, and was filled with music, drinks, and shopping. Upon arriving, guests were greeted by Yo Sneaks, a non-profit group that connects the sneaker culture with giving back to the community. Guests were able to shop the multitude of pop-up shops at the event and support local this holiday season. Featured shops included The Canela Vintage, Saiyo, Art By Beeza, Buzz Art, Apt.144, Vintage Haven, and Pleated Sonata.
