From Austin to Egypt

Monday, December 6, 2021 by Tai Moses

Love global design but want to support local fashion designers at the same time? The ATX+EGYPT Fashion Pop-Up allows shoppers to do both. The pop-up store, part of the ATX+EGYPT Entrepreneurship Program, sells clothing, jewelry, bags, leather goods and more made by fashion designers from Austin and Cairo. As Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, acting director of the Austin Economic Development Department, explained, “This pop-up store is a great opportunity to support Austin fashion designers during the holiday season. The store also provides fashion designers from Cairo with an opportunity to access the U.S. market.” The store is open Dec. 5-20, Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday from noon-5 p.m., 225 W. Second St.
