110 Years of Fashion at CMC

I attended the 110 Years of Fashion event at the California Market Center last week, to celebrate its five decades as a West Coast fashion hub. The day started with a panel discussion on vintage clothing and its current trends. The panelist consisted of Doris Raymond, owner of The Way We Wore, designer Sue Wong, Katharine Brandes, Creative Director for BB Dakota and Sally Lohan, West Coast Director & editor of WGSN. It was such an informative and lively discussion on vintage clothing.

After the panel I attended the opening night reception exhibition in the main lobby. The fashion and art exhibition was a collaboration between a designer and blogger to create a vignette illustrating a select decade from the past eleven decades starting with the 1900's. I loved seeing the interpretation of each decade. The reception was held in a room decorated in fuchsia furniture and carpet with stunning images from photographer Mark Shaw, which were provided by the Andrew Wilder Gallery. Oh to have one of these images on my wall!

VIP Lounge

It was an amazing evening. I met Deanne of Dream Sequins and she's just as lovely in person as I thought she would be! I also hung out with my other fashion lovlies, Kelsi from Dedicate Follower of Fashion and Sandra from Debutante Clothing. It was such a fun evening.
