It’s that time of the year again! The Gardens on El Paseo in Palm Desert, Calif. hosted the 12th annual Fashion Week El Paseo 2017 from March 18-25. Our very own Marc Reid was able to fly out for the week and enjoy some of the premier runway shows which featured some of the top designers in the country.
The Best on the West Coast
Events for this year’s Fashion Week ranged from cocktail parties and meet and greet events, to fashion shows and live auctions. Michael Costello and some of the stars from Lifetime’s Project Runway were in attendance along with world-renowned style icon and designer, Rosetta Getty. Marc stayed busy from the late morning hours into the night because there was just SO much to do!! With so many interesting people and events you really have to take advantage of every opportunity.
Events for a Cause
Each night’s events at Fashion Week benefits a charity. The fashion shows allow local charity organizations purchase tickets at a discounted rates and the resell them at a regular price to raise money for their organization. This year, some of the charities include the Humane Society of the Desert, the Junior League of Palm Springs Desert Communities, and the Palm Valley School. Last year, Fashion Week raised a total of $56,700 for the various charities recognized.
More than Just Runway Shows
Fashion Week is a time to meet people and be social with other attendees. There is a cocktail party after each night time event which gives guests the opportunity to listen to music, snack on delicious hors d’ourves and mingle. The week is fun and enjoyable for everyone!
