|Everyone needs a break, and we are no exception.
Fashion Week San Diego, California’s largest traditional fashion week, with over 100’s of designers that have showcased from all around the world in our 12-year history, is officially announcing it is taking 2019 off from producing its two major shows: Spring Showcase and the fall Runway week.
I know, we are sad too, but it’s temporary and with good reason.
Our Founder Allison Andrews has this to say, “This event is not just an event, it’s a community, a recognized brand, and encompasses a full year of signature events to sustain and continue to grow it. After building this brand and events from nothing to a leader of the industry and respected fashion week business model, it’s time for me to let another take it on and bring their fresh perspective to the brand and events. As all things fashion, new energy, trends and new blood is always welcomed.”
We will be keeping active on social media with announcements, smaller designer shows and other fabulous fashion events locally you need to know about. A year goes by fast and we look forward to keeping you updated on what’s to come.
