California Dreamin Fashion Show-May 17th

At RunwayJunkie.com we love fashion shows that celebrate up-and-coming designers. That is why we are teaming up 149 Sports Grill and Bizness Magazine for the California Dreamin Fashion Show in Orange, CA!

This fashion show will be held at 149 Sports Grill on Thursday May 17th. The show starts at 7pm and goes well into the night with an after party that begins at 10pm. It’s sure to be a great evening filled with fashion and fun. You will also be lucky enough to get a glimpse of clothing lines by new designers while listening to the music of talented DJs and performers. VIP guests will be treated to beverages, an appetizer bar, as well as receiving a gift bag along with front row seating to the show. They will also be given the opportunity to meet the designers and performers. It’s a backstage pass that you won’t want to miss out on. After the evening of talent there will be an after party free for guests and only $5 for those that can’t make it to the fashion show. The Bizness Magazine and 149 Grill are sure to put on a fashion show that will not only provide entertainment but also introduce you to a wide variety of up-and-coming designers.

Emerging Designers at OC Fashion Showcase

This past weekend, Runway Junkie attended the OC Fashion Showcase and saw many beautiful designs for a great cause!

OC Fashion Showcase is an annual fundraising event for Working Wardrobes, an OC based non- profit organization that helps underprivileged men and women get back on their feet and into the workplace. This event brings together fashion and local businesses to support their cause.

The first night’s fashion show theme, “Beach” showed off amazing surf, swim and casual beach wear designs.

BOLD Girlz was the first designer of the night. B.O.L.D girls stands for Brave Original Loving Daring. This is a local company donates 10% of their proceeds to charities that empower women. Fantastic to know great minds think alike!

Their designs shown were casual beach. One of their identifying features is a G shaped peace sign.

The second designer was Confiance. Confiance (meaning confidence in French) is an LA based company that emphasizes diversity. Confiance has T-shirts and hand made jewelry inspired by other cultures. Many of their designs have phrases written on them in various languages. Each item even has a handmade logo!

Brit Boy Swimwear is a designer that embodies British culture in each piece. Many have British symbols such as the British flag. The swimsuit pictured below has parts of the British flag lining the edges.

The last designer of the night was Borreca Swimwear. With their bright colors and daring designs, these swimsuits would be a showstopper anywhere.

Orange County Fashion Showcase 2012

For all you blog readers who are in the Southern California, Orange County area, have I got a fashion event for you! The Orange County Fashion Showcase is an event that brings together fashion, business, and philanthropy. By combining fashion shows, networking, music, silent auctions and celebrities, the goal is the raise awareness of the chosen philanthropy. This year, the OC Fashion Showcase has teamed up with Working Wardrobes. Since this is an organization Runway Junkie loves to support, we felt it imperative to be involved in with this event.

From Thursday April 19- Saturday April 21, there will be a plethora of fashion shows, musical performances, red carpets, networking, and after parties. On Thursday and Friday the events take place in Costa Mesa, then move to Huntington Beach for the last night of fashion and philanthropy on Saturday.
