Liliana Patino is a former pop star, media maven, philanthropist and community influencer. She has spent the better part of 20 years in front and behind the camera empowering, informing and entertaining audiences in both Latin America and the U.S. As an entrepreneur she launched a lifestyle magazine in partnership with American Express, as a communicator she hosted and produced her own talk show and as a leader in the community she has received several national recognitions including Journalist of the Year from the Small Business Administration.
Her early days in front of the camera working for both Univision Communications and Televisa allowed her to gain a deep appreciation for the power of media and entertainment. The ability to communicate with large audiences in both Television and Radio have allowed Liliana to fulfill her mission by empowering communities to lead better lives while focusing on health and wellness, financial literacy, civic engagement and higher educational attainment.
Aside from her work in the media, Liliana has dedicated much of her time to philanthropic ventures helping organizations such as the Austin Symphony, St. Gabriel’s Catholic School, Ann Richards School Foundation, MexicArte Museum, Latinitas and most recently co-founder of the Seton Angels Fund.
Born in Monterrey, Mexico, Liliana is a graduate of the ITESM (Technological Institute of Monterrey). She and her husband Luis Patino share time between Austin, TX and Los Angeles, CA. They are proud parents of two amazing kids; Daniela (13) and Andres (9).

Earning our Wings
We know that generosity can come from anywhere, in many different forms. We come from different places, different backgrounds and different cultures, and we know we are strongest when we work together. We are the Seton Angels, a philanthropic group that proudly represents donors of all cultures and backgrounds. Our world is changing, and we’re changing with it. The Seton Angels make a difference by providing compassionate, state-of-the-art personalized care for those who need it most. Together, let’s make a difference.
The Nha Khanh mission is to empower women with inner-strength through their clothing while focusing on “feminine elegance with a modern edge.” “Nha”, in Vietnamese, is a feminine word implying ‘light and elegance’, whereas “Khanh” is a masculine word, meaning ‘victory and celebration’. The fusion of the words creates a balance of unison between feminine and masculine. The collection joins lightness and softness of silhouette and fabrication with the celebration of construction and classic forms. This is the fundamental philosophy and creative driving force behind the Nha Khanh label.
Combining creativity with craftsmanship, CassandraCollections, by designer Cassandra King Polidori, features unique and elegant statement pieces to be worn with an everyday ensemble or special occasion dress. The Collection’s aesthetic is defined by thoughtfully chosen stones mixed with intricate silver, gold or rose gold wire work.
Each piece is lovingly handcrafted and one-of-kind, creating a bold yet delicate design sure to reflect the distinct, individual taste of its owner. Repeat and high-profile clients often commission work specifically for travel, special events and for particularly lucky recipients, the ultimate gift.
A Texas journalist turned New York jewelry designer, Cassandra’s designs are definite conversation starters and redefine the effect of statement jewelry.
ALLISON MITCHELL is an emerging luxury handbag label designing and producing pieces made from exotic textiles, hides, and skins. The minimalist brand offers a polished, deconstructed look that makes a statement with unique shapes in unexpected, exceptional materials and colors. The designer creates bags for women that strive to set the design pace and aesthetic rather than following it. Allison Mitchell’s handbags and accessories are wearable pieces of art made for the already empowered woman who expresses herself freely and thoughtfully.
The brand began to hit its stride after the collection’s namesake designer was awarded the prestigious RISING STAR AWARD FOR ACCESSORIES at New York-based Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Awards event in 2017. She was cited as having her “finger on the pulse of what is new and missing in the luxury leather goods market.”
