Fashion, Food, and Fun Under The Big White Tent

Site Staff Fashion Week El Paseo, Watch & Listen - Fashion Week 0 Comments

With great buzz throughout and beyond Southern California, the fifth annual Fashion Week El Paseo raised the profile of this wildly popular event by showcasing West Coast designers, from red-carpet tested haute couture to fresh student collections, in six days of sold-out runway shows at the big white tent at Larkspur Lane.

Purveyors of fine fashion, accessories, décor, and spa services based on El Paseo opened the event with trunk shows, Fashion’s Day Out, and the Runway Bar El Paseo Fashion Show. Then interior designers tried their hands at high fashion, creating outfits from décor materials and inspiration from a museum exhibition of world-class art. Exotic fashions and an exciting show of student designers’ collections preceded the hot-hot-hot men’s night, and the finale, featuring designer of the week Colleen Quen.

Two days of Fashion Food & Wine, a new event that added a daytime, foodie dimension to the week, was followed by the official closing party hosted by Melissa Morgan Fine Art on El Paseo.
