Fashion X Austin is proud to announce a brand new event for 2018: ACTIVE, coming May 2018.

As an activewear brand, you are offered the opportunity to show in the following ways (NOTE: Activewear may also include swimwear):

  • Full Runway Show: 12-20 looks on the runway.
  • Capsule Runway Show: Meant for smaller, emerging designers with very limited budgets. You will show 3 looks on the runway.
  • Gallery: An approximate 10′ x 10′ pop up space where you can interact with attendees to show them your technical activewear or cool gadget based on an active lifestyle.
