This past Friday, the opportunity arose for me to sit runway side to watch San Diego's home-grown cut & sew line by mastermind Michelle Aquino of M.dot Design. For the premiere of her latest holiday line "The Siren, the Muse and The Goddess", M.dot hosted a fashion party showcasing her newest collection. I was definitely excited to see so many flirty and functional pieces crawl down the catwalk. I was joined by two good friends and we enjoyed sippin' and schmoozing at the San Diego W Hotel. Designer and cut & sew extraordinaire, Michelle creates one-of-a-kind pieces out of her downtown workshop. Michelle is a graduate of FIDM and also an active member of San Diego's fashion community. Each of her designs are custom created out of her studio in San Diego. For more information on M.dot Design and check out her blog and find her on Facebook.
From fun and flirty prints, flowy and feminine monotone dresses, and contrasting color blocking--I could not but help but think how I wanted to be a siren, muse and goddess this Holiday season.
Take a peak at the new line for yourself!
