About Fashion Week San Diego

Fashion Week San Diego® (FWSD) is an annual bi-national event, comprised of a Fall Runway Show and a series of exclusive events throughout San Diego County and New York, connecting consumers directly with designers through annual events, social media and sales opportunities.

Launched by San Diego fashion Entrepreneur, Allison Andrews, in 2007 and operated by GFASH Designer Gwen Bates, FWSD is designed to grow the developing local retail industry and serve as a launching pad for emerging designers.

Designers from San Diego to Brazil

The Spring Showcase 2022 event features 10 globally emerging designers, from San Diego to Brazil, showcasing their original designs with styles ranging from ready-to-wear to sustainable to couture.

Through its 14 years of events, FWSD has become a powerful launching pad for up-and-coming designers, brands and models, choosing only the best of the industry for the FWSD runway. This year’s featured designers include Bliss and Bles, Dorotheaa, Elegantique, Jumpball Apparel, MOTIV, Needles and Spines, Odd Bird Designs, Nina Cicolo, Sierra Mitchell, and Territa Torres. Additional information about each designer can be found here.

“The Fashion Week San Diego team is thrilled for the Spring Showcase event to make its fully in-person return to downtown San Diego this year,” said Gwen Bates, Director of Fashion Week San Diego. “As California’s longest-running, traditional fashion week, we pride ourselves on showcasing up-and-coming leaders in the fashion and beauty industries through our events. The in-person aspect of the Spring Showcase allows our community members and fashion lovers to fully experience the raw talent of these exceptional designers.”
