Fashion Week San Antonio: Moda Next Spotlights the Future of Style

Fashion Week San Antonio gave the local fashion community and style lovers a peek into the future at Moda Next. Six local, emerging designers participated in the unconventional show, where in lieu of a runway, several models posed on platforms.

Attendees could get up close to the fashions and even meet the designers who were also on hand to chat with the city’s fashionistas. Styles were as diverse and forward thinking as the designers themselves. Take a peek:

Tessa Guerra

When kids have become Instagram’s newest style stars, you know the children’s fashion game is changing. Tessa Guerra’s models were as cute as can be, and their clothing as sharp as any adult’s. Dresses have the glitz and glitter that many little girls love and that makes fashion fun. Shapes and cuts make each piece flattering, modest and high-fashion.

Bruno Horwath

When shows present men’s and women’s fashions side by side, it’s usually the women’s fashions that steal the show. Not so at Moda Next. The two men’s designers got plenty of attention and for good reason. Bruno Horwath throws caution to the wind and to traditional men’s clothing colors. Bold hues and body-conscious trousers made these designs a standout.

Valerie Perez

Gwen Stefani mini top-knots, colorful sunnies, and the vibrant palette of Valerie Perez’ collection make me hanker for long summer days. The collection with it’s shimmery skirt, cheerleader pleats and metallic platforms was serving some seriously stylish Romy and Michele realness. I loved every single thing.

Christian Alonzo

Shades of black, grey and white look graphic and unexpected for spring and summer. That’s just what you’d expect from Christian Alonzo, whose collection is at once super sleek, urban and impossibly cool.

Joey Ramirez

Goth white witches in fit and flare dresses? Yes, please! The first thing you’ll notice about Joey Ramirez’s stage is the models hair. Long and white, the look is certainly striking, but a closer look at the beautiful floor-length skirts and asymmetrical dresses reveals that the collection is actually very dreamy and wearable. I want to wear the gorgeous white skirt every day.

Blanquita Sullivan

The force behind the label Bonjour Biqui is making her fashion statement with her trademark old Hollywood meets modern it-girl approach. Each piece is decidedly feminine, but never overly sweet. Each look shown seems to give a nod to a different era. The leotard top and circle skirt are pure 70s, while the white lace ensemble reminds me of early 60s, and the white dotted button down with black skirt combo looks 40s-inspired.

I’m excited to see what the future will hold for each designer. I hope it’s a future as big and bold as their talents.
