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!

#FWSD15: Fashion Week San Diego Spring Showcase

DSC_0188There really is nothing better to get you pumped about new up and coming designers then a teaser runway show.  At Fashion Week San Diego‘s Spring Showcase, they let us take a sneak peek of the featured designers set for the main event next October.   Each designer selected only one look to send down the runway.  This year might be the most sensational yet!  Just look at some of these pics I took from the show!  I’m super excited about the move to La Jolla as well.  It’s literally shutting down a full street for the show!  Incredible.

Pre-Sale tickets are available online now but are going fast.  I have my tickets, do you have yours?!  Click here to purchase.  See you there!

#FWSD Viva La V Series – Stefan McKellar


DSCN0096

Fashion is so much more than just clothes.  It’s accessories, handbags, shoes, and even luggage.  That’s what I had the pleasure of experiencing at the first Fashion Week San Diego Viva la V series featuring Stefan McKellar at the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla.  His luxury luggage is so wonderfully full of detail that it is a perfect blend of the past and present.  It evokes memories of vintage train cases while remaining very of-the-moment.  It’s classy tough girl chic at it’s ultimate finest.  This is the type of luggage that is not to be checked but carried with pride through the airport to your next adventure.

I am so very much looking forward to seeing more at Fashion Week San Diego this year (Sept. 29th-Oct. 5th 2014).  Purchase your tickets to the show now!  See you there!

My look to this day time fashion event was a simple and classic sleeveless sweater dress by Kate Spade.  I love dresses you can either dress up or down depending on the event.  Expect to see this one a lot over the holidays when I’m dashing from party to party!

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!

Fashion Week San Diego: Day 2

FWSD

Day 2 of Fashion Week San Diego kicked off the runway events!  I was so impressed by all the emerging designers and floored by the spectacle of the “Styled to Rock” preview.  All the emerging designers were hand picked to present their collections over the course of the 3 days of runway shows in an effort to be voted as Best Emerging Designer.  The winner will receive cash, an opportunity to meet with buyers, and many more amazing prizes.  So you know they’re showing us their absolute best!!  With everything from gowns to swimwear, the audience was fully captivated.

The show closed with a preview of 3 designers from the coming series “Styled to Rock.”  I can’t even begin to find words to describe the incredible designs.  It was just amazing to see these visions!  Here are some of the highlights of the event.

For today's show I wore a vintage skirt with a moto jacket.
