Dallas Alexias, featured fashion designer at RAW Artists
By: Jelicia Lloyd
Dallas is an upcoming fashion designer attending The Art Institute of San Antonio. Her unique style and constant dedication sets her appear from a lot of people. Her love for nature and culture are her biggest inspiration as a designer. Dallas’ love for fashion, inspires her not only to create beautiful garments, but also gain knowledge of her inspiration, whether it’s a culture, society, or a plant or animal. The in-depth research helps to bring her designs to life and makes her art memorable, rather than being “just another pretty dress”.
RAW brings underground creatives to the light and provides independent artists within the first 10 years of their creative career with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. The event is a great place for people to get to know artists and their work. The artists in turn, reach a larger audience and create connections with other colleagues, fans and followers.
Dallas’ talent was discovered by Style Lush TV and later by RAW online. They reached out to her for an opportunity to showcase her work. The RAW event gave Dallas the chance to showcase a few of the pieces she has constructed throughout her college career and gain recognition to new audience.
During the event, I was able to meet really talented people, and get to know a little about their work and how they got started. My experience was very memorable as press and my first time having full access. Being an artist myself, it was an amazing experience to connect with other creatives and learn their style and niche.
