Another year, another Fashion Week San Diego runway show!
San Diego saw another great set of runway shows during Fashion Week and fashionistas came from all around. This year was my third time attending FWSD and I’ve witnessed firsthand how much it keeps growing. The list of designers keeps getting longer and the designs get better and better. I wasn’t able to make it every night because mom life but I made it to the Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday night runway shows.
This year there were 34 designers and the runway shows were spread out over 4 days. We had the pleasure of seeing everything from women’s wear to men’s clothing, a super chic children’s clothing line, to swimwear and accessories and even luggage. Because there were so many more designers, the variation of styles was greater and there was something for everyone, no matter their taste.
FWSD was held at the Broadway Pier again and it’s such a great venue. It’s spacious and your are surrounded by water. I arrived early all 3 days that I attended and was able to sit out at the end of pier and watch the sunset before the shows began, and we all know how gorgeous San Diego sunsets are. Such a treat! The Photo Box (photo booth) was there for us to take pictures and get silly with funky props and there were a few great options of food to buy from, 4 hours of runway watching makes a girl hungry. The Haute Dog runway show took center stage again this year with adorable (and very much adoptable) dogs from the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. The dogs made their way down the runway and won over the hearts of everyone in the audience and they loved the attention. On Saturday night, we were treated to a presentation by Julia Koerner about 3D printing, a presentation that has only been seen otherwise by those who attended Paris Fashion Week!
It was a week full of fashion, dressing up, stylish people, and fun. I saw some familiar faces and met some new ones. As always, by my side were 2 of my favorites ladies, Cynthia y Lua. Lua and I have been enjoying FWSD for the past 3 years and at last year’s show we met Cynthia. Cynthia and I even celebrated our 1 year friend-iversary with a fun dinner on Saturday night joined by designer, Maralonzo.
I don’t know that I can pick just one favorite designer because there were so many great outfits presented throughout the week. If I had to narrow it down, Maralonzo, Wish Now, J.L. Rocha, Jessica Faulkner, and S. Mckellar were my top 5. I’m already looking forward to FWSD 2015, I can;t wait to see what the next year brings to delight the hearts of us fashionistas. And although Fashion Week San Diego is over, it doesn’t mean the fun has ended. There are still more events to come so if you missed FWSD be sure to check out some of these upcoming events: Viva La Series featuring J.L. Rocha on November 6, Flaunt Fashion series featuring J.L. Rocha on November 20, and Viva La Series featuring B.JASH.I on November 20.
