Style X Style X is back this year! Err, the name is at least. Unlike the big retail event which premiered back in 2011 and included pop up shops and runway shows in addition to speaking panels, Style X this year is scaled back to simply encompass all the fashion related interactive events. Here's a list of all the Style X panels happening during the Interactive portion of SXSW (Friday Mar.7 - Tuesday Mar.11), which you will need an Interactive badge to attend: Style X Panel Schedule Some highlights include Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso, and TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie.

Every year fashion becomes more and more a part of SXSW.  Rightfully so, since fashion and music are like soulmates.  I put together a list for y'all of the biggest fashion events happening during SXSW this year. Check em out! The Neighborhood The creators of StyleX, the first official infusion of style into SXSW during 2011 and 2012, have switched things up a bit this year with "The Neighborhood."  With the same goal that Style X had which was to inform attendees about new brands and what's next in fashion, The Neighborhood is taking place in the 2nd District shopping district.  Besides the pop up shops from local and non-local emerging brands, there will be daily Q&A sessions with leaders in the fashion industry, including John Varvatos, Billy Reid, and Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller. I will also be speaking on one of the panels for The Neighborhood discussing Austin style.  Come say hi to me and feel free to bring questions that will make me feel awkward!  I will be speaking at 2pm on March 14th along with Indiana Adams of Adored Austin, Dan Gentile of Thrillist, and Caitlin Ryan of CultureMap.
