Welcome to Orange County Fashion Week®

The place to see the most exciting local and international fashion leaders – from designers and stylists to media and brands is at OC Fashion Week® March 25 – March 28.

Opening Day features a premiere of Fashion Parade 2018 in front of stunning panoramic city views at Marriott Irvine Spectrum’s Hive & Honey Rooftop Bar on Sunday, March 25 at 3 p.m.

At this special preview you’ll see the latest ready-to-wear creations from BGR Designs creator Berenice Gonzales, elegant designer Charmaine Joie Couture and Carmerad Hand-Made collection from girl's wear designer Adina Bidian. Also introducing the Jewelery collections of Australian jeweler Sally Skoufis, Jacqueline Paolo Qua Galang for ShopBexo and Danielle Poe of JAGged Edge Jewelry.

Taking to the modeling runway for the first-time will be the sassy scribes from So Cal Bloggers featuring shirts by Stranger Prints - a precursor to their own event Babechella coming in June. “Our runway team Behind the Seams trained these bloggers as "first-time-runway" models in preparation for their first fashion show in June this year which we are sponsoring,” says OC Fashion Week® president Kathryn Marino. “We are giving the crowds a chance to see what we do to prepare models  for all our runways.” 

Guests will also see Art Institute of California students compete in a chefs’ challenge – each creating stylish plates of culinary delights to tantalize the taste buds and inflame the pages of Instagram. Renowned Food Network Star's own food stylist and costumer, Nico Alvarado, will be a guest panelist helping decide who wins the title for dishing up the smartest, most succulent savories.
