Fashion Week San Diego – Runway Show Day 1 Recap

Wow!  Fashion Week San Diego has come and gone, and it was quite an amazing few days of events.  When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure where it would take me, but I had hoped I would someday be able to attend events just like this.  As I am getting to know the fashion industry, I’m also learning about who I am as a blogger and what I want to present.  The reason I’m explaining all of this is because I actually don’t have any truly great pictures from day one of the runway shows.  We (bloggers) were seated a bit further back than desired, which made picture-taking quite difficult.  Some of us then started to move all the way to the back so we could stand without obstructing the view of others, which meant I only captured half of an outfit, along with the tops of people’s heads.  After awhile, I sort of gave up a bit and just enjoyed the show because I knew I just couldn’t post most of the pictures I had taken.  When the “Styled to Rock”* designers came up, I felt compelled to capture something because the designs were right up my alley:  rock inspired and gothic.  Long story short, I have a few pictures of the venue, some pictures of the video screens and three videos of the “Styled to Rock” segment, and a scan of  the flier showing the designers for the night.  For fantastic pictures of day one of the runway shows, check out Fashion Week San Diego’s Facebook page.  All this week, I’ll be featuring recaps of the runway shows and the final trunk show of Fashion Week San Diego, so keep checking back for all of the fabulous fashions and action on and off the runway.  Hope you had a great weekend!

A list of designers for day one of the runway shows. I apologize again for not having any pictures to present of designers prior to the “Styled to Rock” designers.

I fell completely in love with Dexter Simmons and all of his pieces. So very rock inspired and edgy.

Andre Soriano and Cecilia Aragon’s collections were so wonderfully gothic.  Love!

*Styled to Rock is an upcoming American reality competition television series, executive produced by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna which focuses on fashion design. The contestants compete with each other to create the best outfit for one or more famous music acts every week. They are restricted in time and materials. Their designs are judged and the music act of the week chooses his favorite one. One designer is eliminated each week.

The series was originally scheduled to debut on November 5, 2013 on the Style Network. However two weeks before its September 23, 2013 debut, the Esquire Network was announced as taking over Style’s channel space, rather than G4 as originally planned. It was announced on September 30, 2013, that the series will premiere October 25, 2013, on Bravo.
