Last week marked the official arrival of fall, and that of course means it’s time for a wardrobe makeover! It’s finally cooling down a (teeny) bit in SoCal, so it was only fitting that Curator client Fashion Valley, San Diego’s premier retail shopping destination, marked the stylish arrival of the season with its annual Fall Fashion in the Valley runway shows.
Fall fashion took center stage at Fashion Valley, with a showcase of the latest trends from retailers like AllSaints, Halston Heritage, HUGO by Hugo Boss, Joe's Jeans, Scotch & Soda, Ted Baker, and more.
Check out my Top 3 personal favorite trends from the event’s two runway shows below:
Capes (C. Wonder)
The cape is the new statement piece for fall, perfect over a holiday dress to add a bit of polish to your evening wear, or even with jeans to add some class to a more casual look. This one from C. Wonder is adorable with the polka dot silk shirt.
Leather accents are back this season, and can be seen in everything from leather skirts, boots, jackets and even jean details, including these looks from AllSaints. This season, colored leather is a new take on this classic fall staple too.
Rockin’ Red (Halston Heritage)
Red in all hues is a great statement color for the season, especially when worn head-to-toe. This evening-inspired look (perfect for a formal gala or holiday party) from Halston Heritage lit up the runway last week.
In between the runway shows, attendees got an up-close demo of ArcoYoga, presented by the newly opened lululemon athletica store at Fashion Valley. If you haven’t heard of AcroYoga, prepare to be impressed! It’s a blend of yoga, acrobatics and performance arts.
The event also gave guests a chance to kick off the season of giving, with the holidays just around the corner. In support of Rady Children's Hospital – San Diego, shoppers who made a $10 donation to the organization received a Fashion Pass to get their shop on, with special savings throughout the weekend.
Fall Fashion in the Valley also kept guests entertained with in-store parties, exclusive discounts, and interactive pop-up makeup, styling and fitness demonstrations. The Beauty Garden area, located near Hugo Boss and Chico’s, treated fashionistas to mini makeovers from Sephora, dry bar hair styling from Carlton Hair Salon & Day Spa, and hand treatments and skin demonstrations from Kiehl’s Since 1851.
The first 250 attendees scored swag bags, and one lucky shopper won a $500 Simon gift card and makeover styling session with Fashion Valley’s new team of personal shoppers.
Thank you to all the amazing shoppers, media and bloggers who came out to support!
