Designer, Fashion Icon and Veteran Visionary, Agosto Cuellar will take over the gallery at Clamp Light to bring back Jive Refried for the 20th Anniversary of Jive Refried Vintage & Art. Jive Refried (1999-2011) was a beloved, otherworldly vintage/music/art/fashion shop on South Alamo; “a labor of love that encompassed everything [Cuellar finds] beautiful: contemporary art, vintage clothes, DIY creations, jewelry, curios and home décor..”
Based in San Antonio,Texas. Cuellar has been transforming mid-century to contemporary garments and textiles into ready-to-wear fashions since 1999. Along with creating one of a kind originals by reclaiming and recycling fabrics, Cuellar is also a painter, D.J., writer, and performance artist. In 2018, Cuellar was awarded the inaugural San Antonio Fashion Cultural Pioneer Award by the San Antonio Fashion Awards, a platform that recognizes influential practices in the local fashion industry. Forthcoming, he will be showcasing his collection, Barrio Folk Baroque on the runways in Paris and New York, as well as a featured designer for San Antonio Fashion Week 2019 in his hometown.
