If you are into couture and conceptual fashion, then you simply can’t miss San Diego Fashion Week. Far from being an
obscure pop-up, this annual event is internationally recognized. It features a number of fashion shows
and even an opportunity to shop the collections after they appear on the runways.
Fashion Week is an opportunity for fresh and inventive designers to show off their latest creations. It is also an
opportunity for fashionable and trendy people to mingle and network. For those with an eye for style,
this is a can’t miss event.


Runway Shows and More

Fashion Week starts with a VIP reception and a screening of Red Pearl at The LOT in La Jolla, starting
at 6 p.m. The first runway show is on Thursday, October 5, starting at 6 p.m. at the Andaz Hotel. The
theme of the event is “The Art and Beauty Behind Fashion,” with a focus on being visually stimulating.
On Friday, ten designers will present during the first night of Runway Shows, starting at 6 p.m. at the
Broadway Pier in Downtown San Diego. There will also be an after party at Florent on 5th Avenue.
Saturday, the remaining eleven designers will present during the second Runway Show. Starting at 6
p.m., the Broadway Pier will be overflowing with fashion.
Buy Hot New Designs at the Trunk Show
The annual Trunk Show event at Hotel Del Coronado on Sunday will feature collections from the
designers in this year’s show. You will have the option to shop these collections and witness the
announcement of the several awards.
The hotel is located at 1000 N Harbor Dr., and admission to the Trunk Show is $15 per person. For
those who have enjoyed the fresh looks or want to peruse the collections without attending the shows,
this is a great option!

An Upscale Event Worth the Ticket Price

Tickets for Fashion Week are still available. If you’d like a Front Row VIP seat to see
and be seen by all the hottest people, this $250 pass is for you! Your seat will be reserved with your
name on it, and you will receive a special Fashion Week San Diego VIP gift bag.
For those on a tighter budget, the standard VIP pass gets you into all the events and ensures a seat at the
runway shows for just $100. There is also a general admission pass, which is only $50, and gets you
into events, but without any guarantee as to seating.
