About this Event

**FREE EVENT**

Come experience the future of fashion in Austin at our state of the art 7,500-square-foot facility offering career-technical training, transferable credits, a residency program, leasable space and more!

Join us at 2:30 PM to hear from ACC Fashion Incubator Director, Nina Means, Production Coordinator, Michelle French and Instructional Coordinator, Michelle Washington, on how the ACC Fashion Incubator is providing the necessary education and tactical expertise to build their fashion businesses in Central Texas. They will speak from their individual expertise on how they are making space for designers to thrive in Austin. This talk will cover resources, local experts, information on master classes and workshops, as well as the introduction to some of our most exciting fashion technology. Designers and community members alike will be amazed at how Austin will be leading the way in some of the greatest developments in our industry.

Following our panel we'll offer tours of the space. Additionally, visitors will get the opportunity to see and shop our in-house fabric market with incredible silks and cotton products sourced from New York and China. These materials were brought to Austin, by local fabric artist, Cosette Russell, who has shown in museums and shows all across the country. Her work was featured at the Smithsonian. In her memoriam, a percentage of proceeds go toward program development and student engagement. Austin Community College’s Fashion Incubator prepares aspiring designers and established entrepreneurs for success in one of our city’s most economically promising industries.

During the event shop the Silk Road Fabric Market and arrive early for Fashion Hour.

From 10:00 - 4:00 shop hundreds of yards of silks, including hand marbled, charmeuse, chiffon, habotai, and lamé, along with a variety of cotton and novelty fabrics. There will also be a large selection of hand rolled silk scarves, and select silk camisoles available for purchase.

Join us 12:00 - 1:00 for Fashion Hour as we discuss Material Sourcing with local experts.
