Longhorn Fashions™ was launched by Tessie Watson in August 2010. Tessie was always on the search for cute burnt orange clothing and accessories, but did not always have very much luck finding it, especially not in a hurry. Knowing how hard it can be to find cute burnt orange clothing, she set out to find a solution. Combining her love of the color burnt orange, her love for the talented designers in Austin, her love for deals, and her love for fashion, she produced Longhorn Fashions™.
She continues to reach out to local designers, as well as national fashion brands, to offer unique burnt orange pieces at affordable prices.
Since her audience is a mix of spirited students and young professionals, a strong part of the Longhorn Fashions credo is that wearing your school colors can be done in style and without breaking the bank. Everything is under $100 and most items are under $50!
In 2012 she decided to take her business to the next level by restoring a vintage Airstream trailer and filling it with the stylish inventory. By launching The Trendy Trailer, Longhorn Fashions™ is hoping to team up with local restaurants, organizations and bars for mobile shopping events, allowing customers to shop in the Airstream while they wait for their table or network with peers.
You will be able to find the Longhorn Fashions™ boutique on wheels at Bevo Boulevard before all the UT home games! Longhorn Fashions™ will also take the boutique on wheels to other cities across the U.S., bringing stylish clothes and accessories to Texas lovers everywhere.
The 1963 Airstream will be available to rent for private parties, tailgates and SXSW events as well.
