A few highlights from two world class fashion events that took place end of March in Palm Desert.
The first set is a selection from the shops on El Paseo showcasing some of my favourites. Taken from the Diva front row section courtesy of Design Diva of the Desert Tracy Turco. I meant it when I said we can never hope to fill her shoes, but we can sure hope to fill her seats. I thank her very much for the experience. Tracy was also one of the sponsors. It was a fabulous evening.
Fashion Week on El Paseo was held March 19-26, at The Gardens on El Paseo celebrating 15 years of style at the West Coast’s largest consumer fashion show.
Every show provides an inspiring, immersive fashion experience and features cocktail receptions, trunk shows, celebrity meet-and-greets, and much more. Highlighting fashion trends and showcasing a who’s-who of the country’s top design talents (including some stars of tomorrow), Fashion Week El Paseo takes one of the world’s most relatable art forms and brings it to you in style.
On Saturday, March 26th, two women I know put together the first high-end vintage collective sale and informal fashion show in Palm Desert. It was held outdoors at Image Galleries on a very hot day…but that didn’t interfere with attendance and an overall good time with an amazing vintage selection. Not to mention the art gallery…where art and fashion intermingle. I mean what can be better than that?
Yes; it appears that GLAMOUR IS indeed BACK! At least in Palm Springs/Palm Desert. After almost two years in sweats and pajamas it’s a welcome shift.
