New York, Paris, and Milan may be the fashion centers of the world, but Palm Desert has a lock on the best of West Coast design. Fashion Week El Paseo (www.fashionweekelpaseo.com) presents a full repertoire of styles, and each annual event offers a new spin. In 2012, for example, the Stars of Project Runway took the stage, showcasing the TV show’s top eight designers, and Lloyd Klein debuted his two newest collections. Last year also introduced Le Chien: A Celebration of Dogs & Fashion. What’s in store for 2013? Check the website throughout the year for more on Fashion Week El Paseo (March 16-23). In the meantime, enjoy fashion shows (usually tied to luncheons) throughout the desert.
