“San Antonio has a unique multicultural and diverse footprint as a destination city with a large Hispanic population. We have a geographic advantage to Mexico and Latin America that gives us a niche in introducing cross cultural influences in fashion and introducing that to the rest of the world! As a resident in San Antonio, I would like to see more of the best of the best fashion designers show us their work in fashion show events. I would like to help retailers -especially those that are small business retailers- have fashion events available to support their healthy growth in light of todays competitive on line market share. I want to support keeping business local and with that, keeping our city flavorfully unique.”
