In a long over due post, here is my El Paseo fashion week roundup.
Palm Springs Life and Integrated Wealth Management put a fantastic week of shows, events, trunk shows, and charity events to Celebrate Fashion week in Palm Springs March 16-23, 2012.
I was lucky enough to attend many of the Events. The Bachelor Auction was a great kick-off to the weekend on the Saturday night. More fun than fashion, eligible Bachelors were auctioned off in-junction with their Bachelor “packages” that ranged from advertising to spa packages, and small getaways. Needless to say, everyone that attended was very entertained.
Sunday was deemed “Style and Beauty” Bash day. Salons took up space in the main tent to promote their businesses and services, while patrons roamed around to take a look at the offerings. All salons offered up services for $30, with all proceeds going to a charity of their choice.
Saks Fifth Avenue put on a great show on Sunday night, favoring on the spirit of Palm Springs with colorful resort wear. Monday hosted a reception for the amazing charity The Girlfried Factor, whos mission is to celebrate the powerful influence women have on eachother’s lives and providing financial support in the form of educational grants. Proceeding that was the El Paseo runway show which featured various boutiques on El Paseo. Needless to say it was a full show!
Overall a great week for Palm Springs and Local Business, I am looking forward to next year!
A shout out and thank-you to Paulina Partida from Palm Springs Life for all her support and consideration!
