Fashion Week San Diego is finally here! After watching weeks of fantastic fashion activity from around the world, it’s our turn to have some fashion fun! Night 1 kicked off with the Art & Beauty Behind Fashion event. We got to listen to industry experts about upcoming trends for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014. We also got some amazing tips to recreate some of the hair looks we saw on the runway into wearable everyday looks. One of the panelists, Dean Hall of HALL & SAKS, even gave me a shout out because of my super loud McQ Alexander McQueen dress! If you ever wanted to see me blush to a deep shade of red, that was your moment!
One of my favorite discussions was about upcoming nail trends. I love nail trends so for me it was really exciting! The co-founder of CND, Jan Nordstrom Arnold, gave us some really great inspirations for the coming months. I’ll share more of her tips in another post. Stay tuned!
Fashion shows will take over for the next 3 nights and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s so inspiring to see the designers’ imaginations come to life. I’ll be taking photos and posting them on my social media and on the blog so make sure you’re following me for the most up-to-date news! Here are some night 1 highlights.
