La Jolla luminaries shine at art and fashion events

The Art Meets Fashion project brought a new kind of runway to Terminal 2 at the San Diego International Airport on April 28 — a fashion show featuring the creations of 11 teams of artists and designers. Among the VIPs were a number of La Jollans, including 14-year-old Dagmar Bjork, who is already a professional model and jewelry designer. The First Friday event on May 6 drew hundreds of spectators to NTC Promenade at Liberty Station in Point Loma for a second showing of Art Meets Fashion designs and an open house at some of the 37 galleries that now call NTC home, including

Visions Art Museum. Once again, artists and designers who live and work in La Jolla were on display.
