With Father’s Day quickly approaching (June 21st to be exact) it’s time to start thinking about the men in your life. Does he have an interest in men’s fashion? Would you like him to? When I think of men + fashion, I always thing about my father-in-law. The man knows how to dress. My husband tells stories of Saturday nights being “shine the shoes night” and I wouldn’t be surprised if that tradition still holds true for him. There’s just something about a well dressed man isn’t there? It’s a chance for them to express their style, creativity and current mood.
I’m very excited to tell you about a fashion event that’s all about the MEN. This Saturday, June 13th, Fashion X Austin (producer of Austin Fashion Week) is hosting the first ever Fashion X Austin: MEN Presented by Cadillac.
This event has been a year in the making. The team at Fashion X Austin, along with Cadillac, have worked hard to put together a fun event for everyone.
Founder Matt Swinney says: “Men’s style has evolved dramatically over the last few years in Austin. We have been working for more than a year with Cadillac to put together an elegant, yet approachable event that speaks to all elements of men’s style – from fashion and grooming to cars and cocktails, Fashion X Austin: MEN will have a little taste for everyone.”
As you know, my daughter and I attended Austin Fashion Week and we were both blown away by yes, the fashion, but also the fashion community. They’re kind. They’re giving. They’re creative. They made us feel so welcomed and I’m excited to get more involved in any way I can. First up, attending Fashion X Austin: MEN.

As mentioned, this event is designed to be very approachable – Austin style if you will. There will be no formal runway shows, but a chance for attendees to get up close and personal with men’s style brands such as Ross Bennett, United Apparel Liquidators, M. Andrews Sartorial Luxury and more.
