This weekend in San Diego, it seems that everyone is talking about Comic-Con and all of the crazy people with their even crazier costumes. But if you were wondering where all of the beautiful and fashionable people were, then look no further than La Jolla. That’s right, the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival has returned for its 5th year and it’s even bigger and badder than ever.
Day One’s red carpet definitely did not disappoint. San Diego’s fashion designer darling, Andre Soriano sprinkled his pixie dust of fabulosity throughout the entire runway with his stunning purple confection with a train that needed its own entourage.
Fashion icon Edith Head made an appearance giving her seal of approval on those outfits that were to die for.
And Fashion Group International San Diego members were in attendance – some for fun, some for work, some for both.
The one and only Diana Cavagnaro always stunning in one of her fascinators.
The exquisite Linnea Zeiner working literally on the red carpet.
A huge thank you to my partner-in-crime at the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival – Samia Lavenant, Guest Relations Manager.
And of course, to the man who makes it all happen…Fred Sweet, LJFFF Producer.
Looking forward to Day Two!
“EMBRACE experimentation; PLAY with fashion.”
These are words that every fashionista lives by. What’s really cool though is that there is a girls’ fashion line that teaches this!
Fiveloaves Twofish is a San Diego based fashion company that creates the most amazing (not to mention coveted) girls clothes around. How amazing are they? You can purchase their clothes at a little store called Nordstroms. Perhaps you’ve heard of it?
Fiveloaves Twofish is a fashion-driven lifestyle brand for girls, tweens and young contemporaries. Each collection is an all encompassing look, attitude and way of life allowing girls to explore fashion as they are caught between “little girlhood” and “juniors”.
Their Fall 2014 collection definitely embodies these principles of Fiveloaves Twofish. Titled “Fall Into Parisian Style”, their dresses have a grown up flair but are still very much age-appropriate. Beautifully full skirts have girls twirling in the streets. They just can’t help themselves! And the prints…let’s just say that they make you wish that you were a little girl again just so you could wear them! (Although they do have sizes up to girls 16!)
One of the really great things about Fiveloaves Twofish though is their business ethics. They encourage clients to know what they buy and to read labels. They encourage clients to buy from companies that treat workers, animals and the environment with respect and that’s exactly how they operate themselves.
All of their processes are done right here in sunny San Diego-from designing, patterns, samples to manufacturing. They pride themselves on their work to help sustain the economy of San Diego. They even source 50% of their materials locally!
