TEXAS FASHION WEEK™
TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ serves as the state’s official fashion week in support of Industry. The fashion week offers a platform for professionals to be showcased, scouted and acknowledged. It will also serve as home to the future Texas Fashion Industry Convention™, a trade show in which Texas fashion industry professionals can fly in, network, share local resources and build a better ecosystem for fashion industry in Texas together.
TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ is the City’s official celebration of fashion in San Antonio as proclaimed by Mayor Ron Nirenberg! It serves the state of Texas as the official fashion week in support of the Texas fashion industry. Hosted by the Texas Fashion Industry Initiative 501(C)(3) and produced by Style Lush TV and the TFII Chair Committee, this week-long event showcases visually stunning fashion shows, incredible retail shopping, exciting innovations in hair, makeup & wellness, inspired fashion art exhibits & performances, educational opportunities, luxe culinary experiences and ends with the premier red-carpet event of the year, the TEXAS FASHION AWARDS™ held at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.

Silver Jacket students will have their break out moment, statewide fashion community can fly in and network and businesses can flourish and find new support.
TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ serves as the culmination of the Texas Fashion Industry Initiatives annual calendar of advocacy. The annual cycle begins with the Education Department and their Silver Jacket Entrepreneur Program.
