Fashion Week San Diego back on


Fashion Week San Diego has been rescheduled. The event, which was originally supposed to be held Sept. 28-Oct. 5 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, will now happen Oct. 2-5 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.

The event that’s billing itself as “the only bi-national Fashion Week in the United States” will include runway shows and parties at downtown nightclubs.

Earlier this month, Fashion Week was postponed due to the creator, Allison Andrews, breaking her pelvis. Fashion Week was originally supposed to be postponed to early 2009, but an announcement was made today that this scaled-down version of the event would go on:
