From the fashion stylist who won Stylist of the Year two years in a row (2015-2016), comes an extraordinary exhibit featuring talented local and international artists and designers to be presented at UTSA. Here is just a taste of what’s to come.

FASHION

Cloth Of Jegna is an inimitable cultured London-based African Designer. The inspiration for Jegna’s creativity derives from studying and experiencing Afrika’s many diverse, original, timeless & sacred cultures that were birthed in the cradle of humanity – in the continent that we affectionately know as ‘The Motherland’. This is specifically around the regions labeled ‘The Horn Of Africa’.

WHAT ARE JEGNA’S OBJECTIVES & WHAT DOES JEGNA DO?

Jegna’s objective is to connect Afrika & its diaspora through creative textile design. This objective is achieved by bringing us a feeling as well as a look of Afrika.  We design original & timeless pieces by applying specialized painting techniques on the clothing, shoes & hats by hand. We use an array of tools like paintbrushes, branches from different trees & various minerals for ingenious effects – just as the indigenous people of those regions traditionally do.

WHAT DOES JEGNA REPRESENT?

Jegna takes magnificent pride in making unapologetic cultural statements with each original, authentic, timeless & masterful piece. Jegna’s motto is – “Bring The Water To The Desert”.

In short, it alludes to being original, finding a niche and bringing what needs to be brought as well as what hasn’t already been brung.


Daiquonne Lanier is a San Antonio native and proud graduate of Sanford Brown College. At an early age he discovered his love for fashion design and creativity through exposure to theater and powerhouse female role models. Lanier’s aesthetic has always emulated the effortlessness and sensuality of Valentino. The understanding of shape, championed by Balenciaga, and an eye for clean lines come together to form the Lanier woman, a look of sleek sophistication and poise. Lanier is the founder and creator of his clothing line since 2016 and was titled the Breakout Designer of the year at the 2017 San Antonio Fashion Awards. Lanier attributes his whimsical aesthetic and eye for romance to his love for story telling. Each collection has a narrative and something for then individual to connect with. The moment the wearer gets lost in a piece and becomes her truest self, is the apogee of the Lanier experience.

ABOUT THE CURATOR

Kirsten Thompson is a Creative Director and Wardrobe Stylist located in San Antonio, Texas while working nationally and internationally. She has always had an eye for scale, color, and proportion and spent her youth dressing friends and family members. She studied Interior Design and Architecture but quickly discovered that her heart was in wearable art and the business and development associated with that world – in a word: Fashion.

The scope of her work includes personal shopping and image consulting for private clientele, including several celebrities, as well as portfolio development for established models as well as upcoming talent. Kirsten has worked production on fashion shows for companies such as Neiman Marcus, Sears, and KidFash Magazine . Spanning over 20 years, her career arc has also included working for venerable brands: Saks Fifth Avenue, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, and Theory. She also served as the Fashion Editor-At-Large for SA Monthly Magazine before going on to pursue other endeavors that include Fashion Writing and Editorial Styling.

Kirsten believes fashion is less about the commercial aspects and chooses to focus on its infinite potential for artistic expression. Her styling mantra insists that people should “Dress to express, because that is where the magic lies.” For Kirsten, fashion is both an art form and a mode of communication. She purposely transgresses the boundaries of architecture, sculpture, music, writing, dance, fashion to push wearable art to the limits of creativity.

A major focus of her work is to ensure positive representation of Black Men and Women in the industry. She makes it a point to mentor young models and designers of color because there is a noticeable absence of these groups being represented equally – and she is excited by the ways in which the landscape shifting in that regard within recent years. It is equally important to her that body positivity exists and she fosters and encourages the inclusion of models of various body types and sizes whenever possible.

As in all areas of her personal and professional life, she simply strives to: “Be the change”.

From the City of SA website:

San Antonio will celebrate our 300th anniversary on May 5, 2018, a milestone that can be matched by few cities in the United States. From the Yanaguana settlement to the Villa de Bejar to the 7th largest city in the United States, our remarkable journey tells the story not just of our people and place but of larger forces that shaped the world we live in today. Our tricentennial year will be an opportunity to discover our roots, commemorate our storied history, recognize our progress and collaborate on our bright future.

On April 15, 2015, the Mayor issued a memo indicating that Father David Garcia, Archdiocese of San Antonio, Dr. Katie Luber, the Kelso Director of the San Antonio Museum of Art, and Robert Thrailkill, the General Manager of the Hilton Palacio del Rio had been invited to serve as chairs of the San Antonio Tricentennial Commission, as well as the Commission’s composition and its members. Past Mayors will serve as Honorary Chairs.
