Even if you have never attended Fashion Week San Antonio before, chances are you may recognize Samantha Plasencia from your TV set. She brought national attention to the local fashion community during her stint on the 13th season of Lifetime’s hit reality competition series Project Runway. When talking about Plasencia, Harris cannot help but smile. He says, “I’m very proud, because Samantha has really represented this city well.” Unfortunately, after weeks on the show, Plansencia was eliminated for a ball gown, which the judges deemed “too safe.” You won’t find safe anywhere on the runway of her Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Urban chic with a heavy dash of edge, her showcase promises loads of leather, sateen, and chiffon. “She really possesses what’s next in the industry and what’s happening right now in San Antonio,” Harris affirms.
