Founder of Austin Fashion Week, Matt Swinney has been putting on the annual event (with the exception of 2020) since 2009 and continues to the longest running fashion event in Texas. The shows are also a positive opportunity for many up-and-coming designer to showcase their talent to an always well-received crowd.
“I’m always excited to see designers who’ve never shown with us before. It just all feels fresh and new. But specifically, this season, I’m excited for the partnership with Austin Area Urban League — they’ve provided scholarships for Black designers to show during Austin Fashion Week when they otherwise wouldn’t be able to,” added Swinney.
There is much anticipation about next year and the 2024 shows at it marks the 15th anniversary of the Austin Fashion Week brand. What’s in the work?? “It’s hard to think past what’s right in front of me, but I’ve got some ideas around bringing some old favorites back from years past. No promises, but maybe there will be golden boots and mash up teams sometime next year?” said Swinney.
Fashionably Austin will at the end of the runway to capture some of the best looks. Hope to see you there!
