Palm Springs Life magazine has announced that Mark Zunino, the couturier who reinvigorated the Nolan Miller label, will be designer of the week at the seventh-annual Fashion Week El Paseo in Palm Desert. The West Coast's most anticipated fashion event unfolds March 17-24, 2012, in the Big White Tent on El Paseo, the Coachella Valley's most fashionable shopping district.

Zunino, who lives and works in Los Angeles, will debut his new collection for Spring 2012, bringing to the runway his brand of Hollywood glamour in the form of elegant, high-wattage evening wear and red-carpet gowns. His signature style is reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour, infusing the stunning designs favored by celebrities and socialites.

Designing for two legendary actresses — Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren — Zunino developed his aesthetic by reinterpreting old Hollywood glamour in a contemporary language that resonates with some of today's brightest stars. Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Courtney Cox and Brooke Burke are among the world's most beautiful women who have recently worn the Mark Zunino label.

“Mark Zunino represents the best of both worlds to Fashion Week El Paseo — glamorous old Hollywood style with contemporary, fashion-forward design — and will bring a new level of runway excitement,” says Palm Springs Life Fashion Editor Susan Stein, co-producer of Fashion Week El Paseo. “In addition to Mr. Zunino, Fashion Week El Paseo 2012 will offer our audiences a week of thrilling fashion entertainment.”

Fashion Week El Paseo is the premier consumer-driven fashion experience showcasing the best of West Coast design. This event also welcomes the industry and has hosted more than 30,000 guests in its last six years.

Showcasing the newest collections by top designers, as well as fresh ideas by emerging designers from Los Angeles' Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Fashion Week El Paseo is one of the desert's most popular events and features a fun-filled week of runway and trunk shows, champagne receptions, after parties, in-store events, and events to benefit local charities.

One exciting Fashion Week El Paseo highlight will be a back-by-popular-demand appearance by Project Runway all-stars, featuring the desert's own Michael Costello and several other designers from the popular realty TV series. Other Fashion Week events include an Evening of Fashion featuring Saks Fifth Avenue; La Chien, a day devoted to canine couture fashion, and a runway show featuring more than 15 retailers from the El Paseo shopping district.

Fashion Week El Paseo sponsors include Integrated Wealth Management (presenting sponsor), the City of Palm Desert, El Paseo Merchants Association, Land Rover of Rancho Mirage, and El Paseo Jewelry.

Initially an advertising major at Pepperdine University, Mark Zunino took advantage of a chance interview with legendary film and television designer Nolan Miller, leading to a 1985 apprenticeship and a 25-year career in fashion design.
