Apparently there's no end to the national media's lovefest with Austin (and the craziness and trendiness of SXSW). The fashion-programming aspect to the nine-day festival which starts March 7 is expanding this year.

Style X features a selection of panels, speakers, mixers and meet-ups, and looks to span a diverse range of topics, from fashion media to ethical business practices. Highlights of this year's show are sure to be the sessions with Lauren Bush Lauren (FEED) and Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso, as well as a panel discussion on wearable technology.
