On Saturday May 13th, San Diego’s most stylish people converged on the Windsor Lawn at the iconic Hotel Del Coronado for Fashion Week San Diego’s 10th Annual Spring Showcase. With a Pacific ocean sunset as the backdrop (almost too beautiful to be true), 21+ talented FWSD fashion designers welcomed a crowd into an evening full of fashion.
And OF COURSE, the #StylishBisouBabes made the rounds, strutting in MAJor pup style. And they looked pretty darn cute, if we say so ourselves…**huffs and buffs nails on shoulder.** But more on that in a minute.
For Chloe Bisou and I, the night went by in a blink of any eye.
We started by getting our booth full of Stylish Bisou goodies up and running. We were thrilled to feature our own matching pup & human outfits, as well as Dazzles By Darla necklaces, Curly Tail Ties bow ties, and MollysPawtique bow ties in our booth this year!
Then, we were presented on stage with the FAB Authority Award. We are so excited and grateful to have been chosen as one of the designers to win this scholarship, allowing us to return to Fashion Week San Diego’s best year ever, the 10 year Anniversary! A sincere and heartfelt thanks to FAB Authority (for more information about this fantastic organization, feel free to visit FABAuthority.org)
And after meeting a ton of amazing people and shmoozing for a hot two seconds, it was time for Chloe Bisou to hit the stage one more time. I was honored that FWSD graciously allowed me to escort our Chief Stylist & in-house pug model down the runway. And although it was past Chloe Bisou’s bedtime, once the spotlight hit her, she knew it was time to strut!
Can we just pause for a moment and also say, what an immensely talented group of designers FWSD has for their 10 Year Anniversary celebration?!? After seeing the talent up close and personal at the Spring Showcase, we definitely think FWSD17 cannot be missed! AND tickets for the October runway shows (Oct 4 thru Oct 8) are already on sale! It’s never too early to get them because they always sell out fast! Get more info about FWSD Runway dates and tickets by clicking here.
But, back to the FWSD Spring Showcase…
We were overjoyed to have SEVEN Bisou Babes join us for all of the fashion festivities! We have a sneaking suspicion that they got a LOT of love and attention from adoring fans. Feel free to scroll through to see all the fun Ferdinand, Penelope, Emma Rose, Gooey, Sir Ruffles, Kingston, and Olive had that evening, and be sure to follow them on Instagram for more of their darling adventures!
