#SXSW: The Experience

Another day, another year and another festival. SXSW aka South by Southwest started off was an experience this year compared to last year. What i mean by this is that i had a fantastic time and was able to meet some of my followers from twitter (@MsTosciMarie) and more!

Let’s start off with the fashion side of #SXSW shall we? I went the first weekend of SXSW to get the scoop on the latest fashion technology that will be featured in magazines and runways!

So this is like the first year that SXSW incorporated more fashion into the festival. CEO and Editor-in-Chief of YahooStyle, Joe Zee felt that it was a must to bring in fashion due to the rapid growth of the advancement of Technology.

“Fashion has always been such a ratified passion place. It is still that bubble and what we try to do is pull the curtain aside and have a little more transparency in this particular industry. If you can go online and design a jacket for $68 or a Rodarte dress, we have already made the process a lot more democratic and I think that’s what fashion has slowly become, using technology. I think consumers are in the driver’s seat now.” – Joe Zee

Basically, they talked a lot about how fashion is getting on the bandwagon with the technology industry. Here are a few examples of what we are expecting when technology meets fashion!

SXStyle which is a combination of fashion, arts, culture and if course, technology. Lots of fashion bloggers, designers and inspired on-goers was able to mix and mingle. My advice for fashionistas…and fashion misters, i encourage you to attend next year. This will be the biggest festival for fashion lovers to attend!!! Lots of great opportunities to learn and advance yourselves. GO!!!
