We have released a limited number of tickets for the general public because I feel that the fashion enthusiasts are just as much a part of the industry as a fashion editor, a buyer or a boutique owner.
San Diego (PRWEB) July 18, 2008
Tickets are now on sale for the world's only bi-national fashion week. Fashion Week San Diego will take place in a 20,000-square-foot tent on San Diego Bay Sept. 28 - Oct. 5, 2008. The event will highlight the fashion culture that exists in the region, featuring designers from the US and Mexico.
"This is an industry professional event, but we really wanted to open it up to the public as well," explains Allison Andrews, president of Fashion Week San Diego. "We have released a limited number of tickets for the general public because I feel that the fashion enthusiasts are just as much a part of the industry as a fashion editor, a buyer or a boutique owner."
The event will consist of seven days of fashion shows, daytime entertainment and glamorous after-parties. The finale show will be followed by an all-night party inside the tent with DJs and performers taking the runway. The following day, the tent will be transformed into the ultimate trunk show, featuring a plethora of high-end designers.
Only a limited number of tickets are being released to the general public, with the rest reserved for industry professionals. Fashion enthusiasts interested in catching this first glimpse at the Spring 2009 lines should visit https://fashionweeksd.tix.com to purchase tickets now.
