SAN DIEGO — February 20, 2019 — Fashion Week San Diego (FWSD), California’s largest traditional fashion week, is taking the 2019 year off from producing its two major shows: the Spring Showcase and the fall Runway week. The popular Fashion Week, which has showcased 100’s of designers from all around the world in its 12-year history is also seeking a new director/producer to run point for years to come.
“Fashion Week San Diego is not just an event; it’s a community, a recognized brand, that encompasses a full year of signature events,” said Allison Andrew, founder and director of Fashion Week San Diego. “After building this brand and events to become industry-leading, it’s time for me to let another great leader bring their fresh perspective to the brand. As all things fashion, new energy, trends and new blood is always welcomed.”
