21+ Years Experience
San Antonio, Texas Member
With over 20 years in fashion, Agosto is the 2018 San Antonio Fashion Awards Cultural Pioneer Award recipient who got his start as a local vintage store owner. Jive Refried grew into a cultural phenomenon locally. It was featured in Elle Magazine in 2005 showcasing some of his original fur work which inspired him to continue his repurposed and sustainable fashion designs before it hit big in pop culture. Tim Gunn has called him a “Wild Card” when it comes to his designs and he is the proud founder and producer of Runway En La Calle, a project that ran for 10 year and pioneered the 50′ outdoor runway experience in the West Side streets of San Antonio, Texas. This project featured up and coming talent that would otherwise not have a platform for exposure and allowed established designers to showcase in a unique event that pushed the boundaries of culture and art. In 2019, his personal collection was showcased in New York and Paris Fashion Weeks with his homecoming being in San Antonio at Fashion Week SATX™.
