Fiesta Couture: Art and Artistry features a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process behind the Coronation of the Queen of the Order of the Alamo, celebrating the Mistresses or the Robes, Court Artists, dressmakers, and crown makers who bring the fanciful gowns and trains to life on Fiesta’s most glamorous night. Featuring stunning Coronation gowns, sketches, artistic renderings, and first-person accounts of local artisans tasked with a unique form of storytelling through hand-sewn textiles, Fiesta Couture highlights the skilled artistry, needle and bead work on par with any of the famous couture fashion houses, right here in San Antonio.
