Looks like SXSW is getting a little more fashionable this year! SXSW has been a great showcase for the past 24 years , and now in it’s 25th year will host a fashion exhibit that will showcase March 18th and 19th at the Austin Convention Center. The show will be called Style X (meaning Style By). Style X will highlight amazing new talent in the fashion industry.
Style X was created by the AMAZING person who created Sneak Attack, Joah Spearman. (What’s Sneak attack?! Gasp!!!! Only the second best idea known to man!!!… but I’ll blog about sneak attack later). The co-founder is Jon Pattillo, co-owner of Sanctuary Printshop. Spearman wants Style X to be different than Fashion Week in the Big Apple. The reason why… Fashion Week is exclusive, but Style X will be open to the public! Style X will have FOUR FASHION shows. The dates and times will be announced at a later date on their website.
This is great because SXSW is known for all the amazing new music talent and everyone knows that music and fashion goes together like meat on a sandwhich! I’m personally going to try my hardest to make it to Style X on both the 18th (2-9 PM) and 19th (11 AM-9PM). Good thing my family lives in Austin!
