One of Orange County’s premiere fashion events has returned to its truest form after the pandemic caused a slight change in plans last fall. This year, fashion enthusiasts celebrate in style with the full return of StyleWeekOC at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.

Kicking off the weekend-long celebration was the Bloomingdale’s fashion show, which showcased this year’s fall fashions for men and women. The event was hosted by Fashion Island’s lead personal shopper Sara Aplanalp and Dior makeup artist Robert Steven Munoz, who talked about what’s in and what’s out for the season.

The fashion show and the panels typically held for the event were canceled last year as a precautionary measure due to the pandemic and was marketed as “a little bit virtual, a little bit in person” with deals online and in-store.

Similar deals can be found at Fashion Island, where officals announced the arrival of 10 new businesses scattered throughout its location on Newport Center Drive.

The event began initially in 2011 and has continued every year since, marking this its 10th iteration and anniversary.
