Bright lights, little city, big action. An explosive Fashion Week El Paseo unfolded its third annual program in March with a world-class runway in an elegantly appointed tent at the desert’s most exclusive shopping destination. Nearly 30,000 guests attended eight programs showcasing the fashions of El Paseo merchants and the event’s signature designer, Eduardo Lucero of Los Angeles, whose runway show exuded color, innovation, and energy. In addition to that marquee event, evening programs celebrated Palm Springs Women in Film and Television, Tommy Bahama, and Fashion Group International. Here we present some of the visually stunning highlights and encourage you to mark your calendar for the next Fashion Week El Paseo, March 23- 30, 2009.
