Fashion Week San Antonio: Angelina Mata Spring/Summer 2016
With a focus on contemporary feminine design and high-end bespoke garments, self-taught designer Angelina Mata is a mainstay in the San Antonio fashion industry. "I get humbled every time I speak with her, because as an artist she just blows me away. When we talk, I think, who thinks of these things? Who thinks of this?," exclaims Harris, who at the time of our meeting, had not seen Mata's new collection. "And Angelina would probably like it that way," he laughs. Mata hints that the line will focus on geometry and juxtaposition with a ready-to-wear sensibility. "This season we're looking to Japonism and pulling references from that. Embracing traditional tropes of femininity, adding elements that are contemporary, familiar and bold," she explains. $25-$55, 7pm Mon, Nov. 2, Showspace, 101 S. Santa Rosa St., fashionsa.org.
