WORK IT: Fall is slipping into Southern California, and the latest fashion trends are trailing along behind it. If you want to rev up your style sense, and snag some savings and prizes in the process, consider a trip up to Style Week OC at Fashion Island in Newport Beach now through Oct. 5.
SAVE YOURSELF: Known as one of the many luxury shopping centers in Orange County, Fashion Island features the latest retailers for men, women, children, and even pets. During Style Week, many retailers hold special sales and display events to show off their latest seasonal additions in jewelry, clothing, and beauty goods.
RIDING PRETTY: Saturday evening rounds out the event with the Cadillac: Couture Design Competition in which students from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) create innovative evening wear inspired by Cadillac vehicle parts. It's like Orange County's local version of Project Runway's car challenge, up close and personal.
EVENT FULL: Sales, drawings, events, and prizes vary by date. Attendance is free to all but the FIDM runway show, which will cost fashionistas $100 per ticket. More information on Style Week, the FIDM runway show, and Fashion Island can be found on the event website.
