About

FASHION IS ART

On Saturday, March 10th 2018, Style Lush TV, in collaboration with Southtown The Arts District, hosted the first official celebration recognizing fashion in San Antonio as an art form. During this celebration, Southtown took to the stage to acknowledge the San Antonio fashion community as artists and formally inducted them into the San Antonio art community. It was there that FASHION IS ART™ was born. The event was such a success that it has now become the official celebration bridging Fashion & Art in San Antonio! FASHION IS ART™ strives to educate the community about the vast genres of fashion with both an art exhibit and fashion show experience so that they can be acknowledged, celebrated and enjoyed. 

This year, the event begins with the opening reception of the second annual FASHION IS ART™ art exhibit at the Mexican Cultural Institute San Antonio at Hemisfair Park. The exhibit features beautiful works of art by the San Antonio fashion community in a traditional museum setting and is set to open with a performance art piece followed by cocktail hour and museum browsing. This will then be followed by our much-anticipated avant-garde fashion shows highlighting the beautifully strange and uniquely original, created by our fashion community and set in the beautiful garden walkways of Hemisfair Park.

Patrons are encouraged to discover talent, experience fashion in its purist artistic form, and purchase these one of a kind art pieces in support of the positive growth of the Texas fashion industry. Want to up the ante? Claim your VIP tickets and reserve front row seats for the fashion shows, gain access to the VIP Lounge and score your official Fashion Week SATX fine art print by Analy Diego.

naomi wanjiku - sculpture & wearable art

Naomi Wanjiku Gakunga studied at the University of Nairobi in Kenya and at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her works are predominantly wall hanging sculptures, created from nontraditional materials- sheet metal and steel wire. Sheet metal, known in Swahili as Mabati, is ubiquitous in Kenya and particularly associated with Mabati Women’s Groups of the ‘60s. These grassroots groups organized in order to improve their communities, by upgrading the roofs of their homes using sheet metal. She tells their stories of transformation, renewal, and empowerment. Her sculptures and fashion art reflect, at one and the same time, both the Mabati’s enduring functionality and its fragility. The fragile quality of materials is crucial to how Naomi’s work deals with loss and passage of time. Mabati art is the continuum that connects Naomi and her generation to that earlier generation of Mabati women of the 1960’s. Don’t miss her extraordinary and unique perspectives at Fashion Is Art™.

After discovering millinery in 2016, she describes the experience similar to having found her soulmate. Rosa utilizes an old world technique that uses European hat blocks and water vapor to mold and create couture works of art. All of her pieces are made entirely by hand making every piece couture and exclusive.

PRISCILLA MARTINEZ - COUTURE JEWELRY ARTIST & CREATIVE DIRECTOR for PRISCILLA LAUREL

As a former ballerina who draws her inspirations from music and dance, Priscilla Martinez has spent decades designing couture jewelry that has graced Hollywood red carpets and the bodies of high profile clientele. All the pieces in her collections begin with raw materials of bronze wire which are hand crafted and painstakingly molded into one of a kind works of art. The metal is first hand forged by shaping, hammering, texturing and polishing. Once each piece is in its finished forged state, it is then triple plated with gleaming 18K gold. The final process is the adornment of semiprecious stones or crystal pearls making each piece a true work of art. Come this October, the Priscilla Laurel brand will not only present their latest pieces of art, but showcase a music and dance filled performance embodying the true identity of this new collection of art.

Marcos Orlando is a fashion artist, streetwear designer, music creative, youtuber and podcast host whose multi-talented mind creates a vast array of creative projects. His streetwear has showcased many moods, but more recently, “sampled” visually recognizable branding from corporate culture or luxury fashion and juxtaposed it with significant iconography and lifestyle criteria from his Corpus Christi upbringing, which brought him much acclaim. His art speaks on his feelings towards consumerism and fashion all veiled in a bold sea of sensual overtones and mystery. Continually evolving, the Marcos Orlando brand prides itself on its artistic freedoms and will be showcasing in San Antonio for the first time at FASHION WEEK SATX™. Come discover this talent at Fashion Is Art™.

Kelly O'Connor - ARTIST

Playing with color and scale is central to Kelly’s process. Sickly sweet, candy-colored surfaces are juxtaposed with colored paper sampled from vintage covers and other surfaces. The contrast of sparkling rays and bright neon against weathered, dull tones acts as a metaphor for dualities within our society. Appropriated images, enlarged from their original source to exaggerate their apparent content, introduce nostalgic and familiar themes that provide a rich access point for the viewer. Images are drawn from film and popular magazines, primarily from the 1950’s and 1960’s. She prefers this time period because the line quality of the drawings is minimal and the subjects are rich with American idealism.
