2020 was a challenging year, typically, Texas fashion industry leaders are recognized at the Texas Fashion Awards for things such as outstanding professionalism, community support, creativity and leadership with business success and achievement being a huge factor. But because the pandemic did not allow for the awards to conduct business as usual, they tweaked the voting criteria for 2020 so that we could include an additional factor that reflects what was truly important this year. The community used this criteria to vote:
"WHO DO YOU FEEL INSPIRED YOU AS A ROLE MODEL, DISPLAYED A TRUE SENSE OF COMMUNITY OR SHOWED RESILIENCY AND STRENGTH DURING THE PANDEMIC YEAR?"
The community has spoken. And we WON!
The Texas Fashion Awards said "During a year when your customers, friends, fans and colleagues needed something to believe in, your human spirit kept them going. Anyone can shine under healthy circumstances. You did it under the worst. You are special and vital to the positive growth of the Texas fashion industry and we thank you for being so incredible.”
