Being able to wear a designer’s dress while attending a private event to “showcase designers” is definitely a special treat for me. That’s exactly what recently happened. Designer Oseas Villatoro custom designed a dress for me using the most fashionably patterned fabric. Half of the dress was made of faux leather and the other a magazine-styled print fabric. The combination of the two created the most funky-styled ensemble I have ever worn to date by a local designer.

This past August, Villatoro had his second annual Experience Fashion Night that was held in a quaint, urban warehouse. The interior of the building was decorated with artwork by Chris Agarrazil and Ana Magallon. Their artwork, which draped the walls, was vibrant and inspirational.

Also enhancing the event were the various creative treats that were a part of the evening. This included glitter artists who decorated the faces of guests and provided sparkling colors that complimented their outfits. There was a small posh lounge for people to mingle and cupcakes were served to satisfy the sweet tooth of guests. A DJ mixed some tunes while guests awaited the start to the show. The event focused on the designers, what they brought to the show and the special collections they made especially to share during the evening.

The night opened with a display of Oseas Villatoro’s men’s underwear line and ended with his women’s wear.

I can honestly say his women’s wear offered some of the most incredible pieces I have ever seen Oseas create. Without a doubt, I can totally see working women rock them.

Jewelry artist Dawnstar had some amazing body wear that I could see San Diego women wearing at the pool or beach with swimwear or even with cruise wear. It was very unique body jewelry that I enjoyed seeing on the runway.

Jessica Garcia had some great prints and fabrics that could either be worn for work or play. Her designs, which had a grunge look, as some of the pieces were torn and had symmetry to them, made for an interesting style statement.

Designer Zavval stated her collection was “unicornessque,” meaning lots of bright and colorful elements, and had the feeling of mermaids walking the runway. I would love to pair it with a fur element to provide a nice contrast.

Overall, the show was short and sweet. I loved seeing the designers speak about their collections and be able to connect with guests on a personal level. Everyone there was very supportive and happy to be at a fashion event that was off-season from the normal runway activities that occur annually throughout San Diego.

Most importantly, supporting local designers is very important. The more we continue to support these creative and talented designers, the more they can share their work and allow their passions to become their careers.
