As many of you may or may not know, we here at Style Lush TV will only host events that Serve. Our first year we launched the San Antonio Fashion Awards and this year, as a direct response to our fashion community needs, we decided to host something a bit special for our local boutiques.
We realized that while many of our local fashion boutiques would love to buy an advertising campaign with us, sometimes effective advertising is a bit of a luxury for growing entrepreneurs. So we decided to throw an event that puts them in the spotlight, promotes their business and hits on many of their primary needs, including promotion and foot traffic.
LOOK LOCAL FEST will be a glamorous city backed event that highlights its local fashion boutique entrepreneurs, showcases their inventory on the runway, and in turn, gives guests the opportunity to buy the items immediately at the boutique’s pop up station.
Our main partner is OPEN DOWNTOWN Pop Up Shops whose main mission is to support the dreams of our local boutiques by offering growing retailers a no-cost short-term lease in vacant properties downtown. This initiative in turn, gives our local entrepreneurs a resource to learn and grow without taking huge risks all on their own. OPEN DOWNTOWN Pop Up Shops has been such an innovative and successful resource that in 2016, Elsa Fernandez, owner of Eye Candy Boutique, went from an online concept to a brick and mortar in a year. Later, as she inspired so many, she won Retailer of the Year at the San Antonio Fashion Awards.
Other city supporters of LOOK LOCAL FEST include Centro San Antonio, The Arts & Culture Department, Center City Development & Operations Department, our District 1 Councilman Roberto Trevino and SA2020.
The event has been deemed “The City’s Chicest Incentive To Shop Local” and will happen March 18th at the St. Anthony Hotel. With it’s deep seeded historical roots in high fashion, we could not think of a better partner for this event. A timeline of events includes:
5pm Red Carpet and Paparazzi
6pm Kiss and Cocktail hour in Peacock Alley
7pm Fashion Shows and Shopping
Followed by the incredible after party on the St. Anthony Rooftop Cabana Bar
LOOK LOCAL FEST is open to the public but the STYLE LUSH VIP Ticket offers a well-rounded experience that includes, two drinks, charming bites, raffle ticket to win a one night stay at the St. Anthony hotel, walk the red carpet, free access to the exclusive VIP after party on the St. Anthony rooftop and cut the red rope privileges should there be a line.
LOOK LOCAL FEST is “Jeans & Jewels” attire and will also host a Best Dressed Contest for Best Dressed Female, Best Dressed Male and Best Dressed Couple, all set to win a one night stay at the St. Anthony Hotel. (Low casual wear will be turned away at the door. So think hip and get ready to mingle.)
