In 18 days, Fashion Week San Diego (#FWSD) is getting Runway Ready for the biggest fashion event in San Diego! These are exciting times for Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier (taking place September 30- October 6th) where an Art of Beauty and Fashion Event, a trunk show, and 3 days of runway will present 26 emerging local and international designers as they compete for the Winning Designer Business package. There is something for everyone – swimwear, men’s wear, ready-to-wear, plus size, eco-friendly accessories, and women’s wear – it is a diversity of fashion not to be missed by any tanchi! Embrace the differences of style with great garments for any fashionista with or without a panza.
I love runway and am ecstatic to be living the dream and work on such a large-scale fashion show production in the city that has stolen my heart! It’s incredible to be in the midst of producing a runway show–the rush of being in a fast-paced environment, handling beautiful garments, dressing models while working miracles with pins, and seeing it all come together with the DJ spins and lights, ‘click’ ‘click’ from the press and ‘stomp’ ‘stomp’ from the runway strutting. No matter the spontaneous occurrence – it’s all part of the beauty in the making of a fashion event!
In a previous post, FWSD Press Conference and a fashionista must: the Blazer, I featured FWSD’s first press conference showcasing the marvelous collections and models. This time around, FWSD has exciting news to share as, veteran designer, Andre Soriano (known for his larger than life gowns) came to represent the new show, ‘Styled to Rock,’ developed in collaboration with FWSD! 12 up-and-coming designers will create unique fashion pieces for A-list celebrity talent. Representing Fashion Week San Diego are Andre Soriano, Cecilia Aragon, and Dexter Simmons. It is a crossroad of music and fashion as the competition series is being produced by fashion icon, Rihanna! The stakes will be high when competing for the title of America’s next trendsetting designer. Pharrell Williams, Erin Wasson and Mel Ottenberg will be serving as mentors to these designers – and you can get your first glimpse of ‘Style to Rock’ on the first night Fashion Week San Diego on Thursday October 3rd at 6pm! Check out the Style site for more info here. The show premieres November 5th on the Style Network.
