FWSD Preview Lunch: Bjashi and Responsive Textiles

DSCN2296Fashion Week San Diego is teasing us again with an amazing sneak peek of two designer’s looks for the October showcase.  We sipped champagne and ogled over the incredible talent it takes to create pieces of this caliber.  The knitwear from Responsive Textiles is created entirely from one string of yarn.  That means no cutting and sewing pieces together.  Amazing!  And Bjashi mixed her Native American heritage with couture fashion creating looks that are beyond unique.  Just take a look at some of these deigns!  I also added pics of my look to the event with my new Responsive Textiles necklace!

Definitely one of my favorite jobs is when I get to assist with styling runway shows.  These photos are from the Beauty Trend Show at Nordstrom Fashion Valley.  This event is particularly fun because we get to go a little wild with print on print action and lots of bold colors.  The hardest part of the job is trying to not come home with every single thing (and the 6am call time)!  I’ve provided links for some of the items under the photos for your shopping pleasure!

Fall Fashion in the Valley

 

DSC_0062

There’s nothing quite like a fashion show.  With the music bumping and models stomping in the season’s most gorgeous trends, you can’t help but swoon over all the lust-worthy looks.  The Fall Fashion in the Valley show at Fashion Valley Mall yesterday just made me want to start rain dancing so I could have an excuse to wear all the beautiful fall layers!  Some of my favorite trends are capes (like this gorgeous grey cape from C.Wonder), polka dots, and girly girl dresses retro chic cuts.

Now if only this weather would cool down so I could actually enjoy all these fun fall looks myself!

Chanel Fashion Show

image

Sometimes I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world.  I love all of my jobs and that is truly a special thing.  Recently, I helped backstage at a Chanel fashion show for Nordstrom.  It was so fun to see all these beautiful clothes up close and personal.  The detail is really astounding!

The theme of Chanel’s collection is Cowboys and Indians.  Think fringe, ponchos, and desert colors.  My favorite pieces were the knee high cap toe boots (one the right side model) and the star sweater.  The little sheriff buttons make me so giddy!!

Heels2Heal Miracle Babies Luncheon

Heels2Heal EventThere’s nothing I love more than combining fashion and charity.  So it was a no-brainer to attend the Heels2Heal Fashion Show & Luncheon.  Heels2Heal is a great charitable organization that hosts fashion related events throughout Orange County and San Diego in order to raise donations for Miracle Babies.  Miracle Babies helps to support those families with critically ill newborns in the Intensive Care Unit.  This event was held at the Sea & Smoke Restaurant in Del Mar, CA.  We sat outside and enjoyed the fashion show of Flower Hill Promenade retailers in 80 degree November weather.  Only in San Diego!  

I was really impressed with the styling for the fashion show.  I didn’t realize how many great retailers there are in that location!  All the beautiful models were decked out in some amazing fall fashion looks.  Here are some shots of my favorite outfits.

Sugar and Spice

National Charity League Poway

Last weekend I got to help backstage with Bad Madge & Company at the “Sugar and Spice” National Charity League Poway Chapter Fashion Show.  I absolutely love working fashion shows and this one was no exception.  The girls were all super excited to strut their stuff down the runway to songs like “Lips like Sugar” and “Candy Man.”  See the theme there?  🙂  Jennafer Grace was lead stylist for this event and did an excellent job (as usual).  Here are a few photos I snapped of all the action!

Fashion Week San Diego: Day 3

FWSD

 

San Diego Fashion week continues with another fashion show for emerging designers to win the votes of the viewers.  The audience got to see some amazing work tonight.  There was everything from edgy swimwear, to bright floral swimwear, to amazing hats!

The Rancho Coastal Humane Society also did a doggy fashion show!  If you ever wondered what a warehouse of collective swooning sounded like, you would have heard it during when the first pooch entered the runway.  These cuties will have no problem finding homes!  I got a great seat tonight (and my camera decided to start functioning again) so I was able to get some fun shots of the show.  Here are some of my favorites!
