Fashion show to take a walk on the wild side [Outlet]3/05/2013 1:45:33 AM
Fashion show to take a walk on the wild side Fashionista club designers and Penner's clothiers. Last year's fashion extravaganza drew nearly 500 guests. Cuellar expects Saturday's crowd to hit 1,000. (seating begins at 8), Cuellar has gathered familiar designers who think like him: out-of-the-box. McBurney and Roberts, longtime Cornyation designers - and big draws at the annual Fiesta event - have collaborated "on a crazy gingham" collection, McBurney says. Starr and as many as 10 Jefferson students "will put their spin on fashion," Cuellar says. Huerta, a San Antonian who has worked as a fashion intern in New York for the past several months, will present a menswear collection. Penner's, the downtown store that is as iconic as the guayaberas it sells, will send out men's and women's looks. And Cuellar's models will be completely covered up in voluminous creations topped with oversized, lighted beekeeper hats. "I'll have an army of models in different shapes and sizes that represent San Antonio," says Cuellar, who owns Jive Refried, a vintage Southtown boutique (he lives above it on the second floor) that serves as a resource center for other artists.
