The Texas Fashion Industry Initiative is the state’s first official non-profit dedicated to the positive growth to our Texas fashion industry. Headquartered in beautiful Downtown San Antonio, Texas, TFII serves by bridging our Texas fashion communities together, educating entrepreneurs, creating jobs, showcasing our artists and drawing global attention to our Texas fashion scene. 100% of the funds TFII receives goes directly back to the local fashion community. By providing powerful annual events, outlets for global exposure, education for professional growth, and other strong advocacy programs, our local industry will continue to evolve each year. TFII also strives to award grants and scholarships to deserving fashion community and aspiring students. We do this in order to ignite innovation, inspire, and retain our talent while connecting our unique fashion culture to a network of professionals and patrons statewide, nationally and globally. Texas houses world class fashion talent, dedicated entrepreneurs and fresh perspectives from newly graduated fashion students and TFII creates a culture in which these talents can feel confident in headquartering here. Through our efforts, we act as ambassadors for our fashion talent locally, bridge a network statewide, share our community globally and are dedicated to a mission beyond ourselves.
