CONCOURS d’ELEGANCE

Concourse 2Concourse 6 (1)Concourse 10Councourse 8Every August I wait in anticipation for the roar of supercars to glid along my beautiful coastal town and with the supercars comes a crowd that has as big of an appreciation for luxury goods as I do. From Ferrari’s to Pagain’s these sexy powerful pieces of art can all be viewed at the multiple events held during Concours d’Elegance. For decades now cars and fashion have had a synergy as they both are capable of telling a visual story people swoon over. And it’s no surprise that many of these automobile companies have broken into other areas of the luxury sector (like watches for example) to further their brand following.

Growing up watching my brother and his friends tinker with their Porches, BMW’s, LandRovers… I couldn’t help but develop a curiosity and a love for speed and cars. Over the years I found myself often incorporating cars with my shoots for editorials and marketing campaigns, like the shoot I did for Pacific Gypsea in Gordon McCalls personal garage. While it is doubtful I will see Naeem Khan gowns like mine grazing the grass at most of the outdoor events this week, we will see some looks that are worthy of your Pinterest streetstlye board. This weeks not to miss events:

McCall Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center

The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering at the Quail Lodge 

Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach 

And a slew of private parties that are worth the traffic if you are lucky enough to get an invite…

I just got home from a wonderful event put on by the Dress For Success chapter of Carmel. On a perfect California day, guests sipped on chilled wine and ice tea during a cocktail hour before entering the silent auction held at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach. From some of California’s best wines to original paintings by local artists, it was impossible to put my pen down for the silent auction. The bell rang in what felt like seconds as it was time to take our seats for a fashion show with ensembles from local boutiques. The energy was exciting and the music booming; I am pretty sure the men actually had more fun strutting down the runway than some of the ladies, but it was all in good fun for a wonderful cause. Now back to work to prepare for our Pop Up Shop this Saturday, a Creative Directors work is never done.
