Fashion Week San Diego Celebrates Its 10th Year

| October 2, 2017 | 0 Comments

21 designer brands will be presented at the 10th Fashion Week San Diego.

It has been 10 years since Fashion Week San Diego (FWSD) was launched. Since its early days as a micro-fashion event atop a hotel rooftop, to annual sold-out shows and events across the city, organizers say it’s been an honor to share their passion for style with this fine city and help aspiring designers bring their dreams to life and launch careers.

According to Founder and Managing Director Allison Andrews, “It’s also hard to capture my gratitude for this city’s embrace of Fashion Week San Diego and for the international talent we’ve been able to showcase—designers, models, hair and makeup artists and more—in a few words. I’m amazed at how many partners have supported us throughout the years and the city’s support. It’s been quite a decade.”

To recognize the very first FWSD Fall Runway Show 10 years ago, the organizers are returning to the original location and cost. The show will take place at Broadway Pier, and is bringing back 2007 pass prices, starting at $10 a day.

This year they will have 21 designer brands—both local and international—converging in San Diego for guests viewing pleasure. Guests will also get to discover emerging trends not only in fashion, but also in hair and makeup. In addition to learning about the trends, attendees can shop the FWSD 2017 designers at the Sunday trunk show, purchasing looks straight off the runway.

FWSD is taking over all of San Diego this year with one night at The Lot in La Jolla, three nights downtown at three different venues (Andaz, Broadway Pier, and Florent), and one day in Coronado at the famed Hotel del Coronado. Not only will the Fall Runway Shows feature fashion, but also live circus performers. Clown around with us Thursday night at the Art & Beauty Behind Fashion event at Andaz to experience a fashion show unlike any other.
