We recommend that you not arrive fashionably late on November 8th, as you will miss out royally…doors open at 5:30pm! Snake Oil — San Diego’s best craft cocktail experts — will be pouring drinks all night long with Suja Juice as their unique cocktail mixers. Roca Patron, Suja’s “Lemon Love”, + agave will be a popular drink of the night!  San Diego’s best restaurants will be serving their tastiest fare.  There’s nothing like having the option of all of our favorite restaurants in one place.  From The Hake, Poseidon, and Puesto, to Bull Taco, Whisknladle, La Valencia, Bencotto, and The French Gourmet, your savory desires are taken care of!  The silent auction has some swoon-worthy items…after all, it was curated by the stylish Heels2Heal ladies.  After many bites, a few cocktails, a chance at a designer handbag from the silent auction, a bid on a staycation at the Grande Colonial, and some lovely conversations about how gorgeous everyone looks, it will be time for the Nicole Miller Spring 2015 fashion show!  Get a sneak peek at the collection below.

This isn’t going to be your typical fashion show!  If you’ve always wanted to attend New York Fashion Week, then you are in for a treat, because this is the same collection Nicole Miller showed in New York this past September (in stores this spring ’15).  Our favorite event producer in San Diego, Pantherella Specialty Events, will create the perfect backdrop for the night! Following the runway show is dancing and fun — the party is no where close to being over at the close of the show!  ShakeAway milk shakes, Pure Cupcakes, Bon Pastry, Town Bakery, and Eva’s Treats promise the sweetest desserts for guests.  Expect other party surprises on the night of…we can’t spill the beans entirely!
