When You Arrive:

Guests will check in under the last name that was used to purchase the week passes. At this time, week pass holders will receive their VIP or GA lanyards that give them access to the remaining nights of runway shows. Once you have a lanyard you do not have to wait in line for check in the remaining nights.

FAQ’s: 1. How early should I arrive?

Doors open at 6pm, on some nights we will have pre-show activations so be sure to come early!  Arrive no later than 6:30pm or you’ll miss part of the show! FWSD starts on time! 

2. Is photography allowed?


Photography is allowed. Please be considerate and refrain from blocking other guests’ views. Please tag @fashionweeksd or hash tag #FWSD15. We love to #reshare your photos.

3. Will there be seating available?

Seating is for VIP pass holders ONLY. GA pass holders have standing room only. If you need seating assistance please see an FWSD team member.

4. Parking?

– Want to drive yourself? We have an app for that! Parking Panda allows you to reserve your spot in one of the local La Jolla parking structures ahead of time.  No searching for parking, just pull into your pre-reserved spot!

– Some of the local businesses also offer valet parking. For example, the La Valencia Hotel is $8, but there are limited spots so get there early if this is your plan!

– Don’t feel like driving? UBER & Lyft are great alternatives, and can drop you off right in front of the venue!
