Kiddies, Ponies & Swarovski…Oh My!

It’s that time of the year again!  Labor Day has come and gone.  We’re technically not supposed to wear white anymore (but, hey…we’re San Diegans AND fashionistas, we’ll wear what we gosh darn please!).  La rentree or the re-entry into the year after a summer of warm and sunny vacations is upon us whether we want it to or not.

And if you are a bit sad that the fun days of summer are behind you, fret not.  It’s time for the annual Polo Event for FGI San Diego.  Nothing says summer like a beautiful dress, a smashing hat, oversized sunglasses and ponies.  FGI secures VIP tables for their guests under the raised tents at the San Diego Polo Club fields in exquisite Rancho Santa Fe where the wind carries the salty tang of the ocean combined with the fresh earth smell of the divots.

This year’s festivities include a fashion show (of course!), but instead of tall, willowy models walking the field in the the chicest of San Diego attire, it will be filled with pint-sized fashionistas with lots of attitude.  This year’s fashion extravaganza is a “kiddie” show with the most adorable kids in San Diego and features attire from local San Diego based Five Loaves Two Fish Clothing and other children’s boutiques.

And no FGI San Diego event would be complete without an opportunity drawing!  And this year, boy is it a doozy!  The most stunning, sparkly, shiny necklace graciously donated by the phenomenal Swarovski.  With all proceeds benefiting local San Diego fashion students, is there a better way to look gorgeous while being philanthropic?

It is the MUST ATTEND event of the year that FGI San Diego puts on and this year will be no exception.  Tickets include admission to polo, reserved tables under the raised VIP tents, lunch, champagne during the divot stomp and an afternoon of fun with your fellow fashionistas.

Fashion Films Take Over La Jolla

In Events, Fashion Events, FGI, La Jolla Fashion Film Festival on July 10, 2014 at 1:56 pm

It’s that time of year again!  While most San Diegans think that summer fun is the San Diego County Fair and Del Mar Races, the fashionable look forward to the end of July for the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival.

In its 5th year already, this year is bigger and more fashionable than ever.  Instead of three days of fashion fun, there are now 4 days jammed pack with seminars, meet and greets, the fashionabulous After Parties and of course the screenings themselves!

The mission of the LJFFF is to empower, support and recognize the individual creative professionals who make up the fashion film community worldwide.  They strive to be the global marketplace for fashion film-the market maker so-to-speak for distribution deals, director representation and fashion film production houses.

The LJFFF is the world’s largest gathering of fashion film makers celebrating the top 1% of fashion films produced worldwide.  They screen the absolute best of the best.

Each year the LJFFF has a retrospective (last year’s was the famed directorial film work of the one and only Karl Lagerfeld).  This year’s retrospective is even better!

Bruno Aveillan is one of the most sought after luxury film directors in the world and has worked with such esteemed brands as Louis Vuitton and Cartier among others.  He is at the pinnacle of fashion film productions in the world and attendees of the restrospective get to not only view some of his best work…they also get to hear from Bruno himself!

The LJFFF definitely gives you a glimpse of what’s trending in the minds of the world’s top fashion houses, designers and stylists.

Want to attend?  Tickets are still available but not for long.  Tickets as low as $50 per day.
