CELEBRITY CRUISES DESIGN COMPETITION FOR STYLE WEEK OC — SEE THE OUTFITS!
SEPTEMBER 16, 2015
It was a fashionable Saturday at Fashion Island in Newport Beach this past weekend thanks to Style Week OC.
Celebrity Cruises is an official sponsor for Style Week OC and we were excited to be part of the VIP party that evening in the middle of the courtyard by Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales in Fashion Island, plus be a big part of the Fashion Show that evening.
The Fashion Show was hosted by Nick Verreos of Project Runway fame and consisted of top fashions being walked down the vibrant runway by a bevy of models. The highlight, though, was the Celebrity Cruises Design Competition. We partnered up with FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) to have four of the institution’s students design resort wear inspired by different parts of Celebrity Cruises’ ships. At the end of the runway show, one outfit (and its designer) would be declared the winner by a panel of judges and get a $2,000 prize.
First was a vibrant yellow shirt and pant set designed by Peivand Mirzaie and inspired by the Shopping Galleria and Qsine Restaurant onboard Celebrity ships.
Up next was Francesca Lake’s elegant and modern design, which pulled elements from the Luminae dining room that is part of the Suite Class onboard Celebrity’s ships.
A long, sleek Lawn Club inspired garment was next down the runway, designed by Lilit Markosyan, which was followed by a fun, boxy Liquid Lounge inspired dress by Ali Jawad.
After the Celebrity Cruises Design Competition, more styles came down the runway.
Then it was time to hear the judges decision.
The winner was Francesca Lake with her Luminae inspired pantsuit!
