SWOC Orange County's premier Fall fashion event, Style Week OC returned for it's sixth year, bringing an array of runway shows, and in-store fashion parties and events to the OC community between the three Irvine Company shopping centers: Fashion Island®, Irvine Spectrum Center®, and The Market Place. This year, festivities took place for 10 days and ended with a huge finale show at the Irvine Spectrum's Giant Ferris Wheel; the runway show line up consisted of the Nikolaki Spring 2015 Collection designed by Style Week OC & Red Carpet host and Project Runway star Nick Verreos along with his design parter David Paul, a variety of casual street to dressy fall looks from stores within the center (MaxStudio, Francesca's Collections, KAITLYN, Bebe, Tommy Bahama, White House | Black Market, Windsor, and Nordstrom), and a Celebrity Cruises Design Competition showcasing four FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising) designers with resortwear looks inspired by the cruise line's many exotic destinations (the Caribbean, Galapagos Islands, Alaska, & Europe). The winning design was designer Leetal Platt's two-piece look, quite reminiscent of the striking blue waters and tropical vibes of the Galapagos Islands. 

Style Week OC may be over until next September, but there will be an exciting schedule of holiday festivities, shopping extravaganzas and such for you to take part in these coming months at the Irvine Spectrum Center®. What are these festivities you may ask? To name a few, the center recently opened their ever so popular Ice Rink which will stay open through February 16; the center will also host 'Black Friday Frenzy' , a holiday shopping event featuring complimentary ice skating, Giant Wheel and Carousel rides, and valet from midnight through 8:00am for attendees and shoppers; and 'Selfies with Santa' in which Santa will be dressed in a Hawaiian Shirt and board shorts ready to hang loose holiday style for two complimentary selfie photos with you! Check out more of the holiday events here, and hope to see you around the Irvine Spectrum this season!
