5th annual Ladies Fashion Event benefiting





Since 1980, Make-A-Wish® has given hope, strength and joy to children battling life-threatening medical conditions. Make-A-Wish® San Diego grants wishes to eligible children in San Diego and Imperial Counties.

This special Ladies Fashion Event features cocktails, sumptuous cuisine, and outstanding wines. There will be a fabulous Vendor Village where guests can purchase the latest fashion, spa and beauty finds and you'll be able to view an elegant designer fashion show presented by FIDM. 

Students from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising will demonstrate incredible draping techniques and outstanding merchants will present makeup, skincare, hair and beauty demonstrations. There will be outstanding special raffles and auctions and you'll be able to participate in our Ultimate Swap.
