California Fashion Festivals

Fashion Weeks

There is no specific rule as to when you'll see fashion shows, festivals and fashion weeks in California. Each city has its own schedule -- and the concept that once existed in the retail industry of Fall shows for Spring-release products, and Spring shows for clothes to become available in the Fall, has sped up to more of a see now-buy now approach. California's fashion industry also markets to many buyers who can sell light weight clothing year-round thanks to Mediterranean climate.

The Crucible
1260 7th Street
Oakland, CA
Hot Couture 2017: The Beautiful Ones creates a bold, fiery setting in which fashion designers unveil their work.
