Top 4 Trends at the Fashion Week San Diego Spring Showcase

Hey Chrissettes yes, that’s a thing now. Sorry not sorry!

FWSD Day 3: The Fashion Week San Diego Runways (Pt. 2)

9 AM: Good Morning, La Jolla It was time to get back to work. MacKenzie and I headed off to the Hotel La Jolla to get Day 2 of FWSD on the road. 10 AM: Call Time It was pretty much like the day before, but there was more play than work since we already…

8-9 AM: Impromptu Photoshoots with the Roomie We woke up a tad bit early not just because we had to arrive to the venue on time, but we were simply too excited to be staying in a fabulous hotel room for a few more days. This eventually resulted in impromptu photoshoots before we headed out.…

Behind the Scenes at the FWSD Spring Showcase

Fashion shows often look glamourous – and they really are – but that’s the result of careful planning, cooperation with everyone involved, and an excellent work ethic. Arriving at the Harrah’s Resort and Casino, each intern had their own sets of responsibilities from the get-go, each varying from one another from setting up booths to…

Top 5 Trends from the 2016 FWSD Spring Showcase

Today’s the day of the FWSD Spring Showcase, and as an intern, I couldn’t be more excited to help out while getting to see some of this year’s hottest and upcoming designs that even I’m personally excited for, but definitely not my wallet. I have to admit, this year is probably the best I’ve seen…

Viva La V ft. Timmithea

One of my favorite parts of being an intern is working at events, especially fashion shows. Aside from Spring Showcase (which is fast approaching)¬†and its major runway shows, Fashion Week San Diego holds informal modeling events every month or so.
