Austin Fashion Week is seeking apparel designers to show on the runway during the CELEBRATE TEXAS show on Friday, February 22, 2019 at Austin American-Statesman.

To be eligible to show in the CELEBRATE TEXAS show, you MUST meet these requirements:

    If you do not meet these eligibility requirements, please follow the other Participation options using the menu above.


Fashion X has established itself as the premier fashion events company in Texas hosting events in Austin, Dallas and Houston. For the finale of 2019 Austin Fashion Week, we’re letting Boots meet Couture by celebrating every corner of this amazing state we call home.

Each designer will show between 3 and 25 looks and will be representing their city. We’re excited to show the entire state and beyond the level of talent currently in Texas.

Attendance for this event will be 800 – 850 guests.


Applications to participate in CELEBRATE TEXAS are due by January 15, 2019 or until all spots have been filled. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received, so it is beneficial to complete your application early. There are no fees to apply.

The AFW Advisory Board will review each application and provide each brand with a yes, no or waitlist answer. Those that receive a yes answer will be placed under contract and billed for participation. All fees are due no later than January 20, 2019. NOT ALL APPLICANTS WILL BE CURATED TO SHOW.


Upon approval by the board, you will be sent a contract to be executed by both parties. Once under contract, you may not be released for any reason and you will be billed for any participation fees due. The fee may be split into multiple payments but final fees are due by January 20, 2019.
