Watch out Comic Con, here comes Fashion Week San Diego® (FWSD).  FWSD took place September 30th to October 6th with a week of events including three days of runway shows, a Trunk Show (market day), an art & beauty event and much more. The Broadway Pier in Downtown San Diego was the perfect backdrop for the fashion shows.  With Interim Mayor Todd Gloria and County Supervisor Dave Roberts in attendance, Mayor Gloria presented FWSD Founder & Director Allison Andrews an official proclamation declaring the first week of October to be the official fashion week in San Diego.  The event was a major success with a smooth production generating growth in businesses and the industries of fashion and tourism as well as launching the FWSD Designer Spring/Summer 2014 Collections for 26 designers.  This year FWSD hosted representatives from InStyle, Vanity Fair, national fashion retailers as well as world renowned designer, Zandra Rhodes.

San Diego designer, Andre Soriano a veteran designer of Fashion Week San Diego and a participant in the new "Styled to Rock" television show from executive producer and fashion icon Robyn Rihanna Fenty didn't disappoint with his latest collection with a punk inspiration.  Andre is well known for his larger than life gowns and includes one amazing piece in punk.

Highlighting FWSD is the end of the week trunk show and an audience choice for best designer.  The trunk show generated over $18,580 on Sunday where this year's Winning Designer RHCREATION was announced along with first runner up Wishnow and second runner up GreenpachaRHCREATION successfully met with buyers from on Monday October 7th as part of the Winning Designer Business Package. 

Safe to say that FWSD will be back in 2014.  Mark your calendars and keep checking for updated information.  You'll want to get your tickets early as the buzz continues to grow.
