Palm Springs Life magazine is pleased to announce Saxony Group as the title sponsor and JM Couture as the presenting sponsor for the ninth annual Fashion Week El Paseo 2014 slated for March 16-22.

"As a leader in the Coachella Valley, Saxony is committed to providing premiere service and ground-breaking opportunities. Fashion Week El Paseo has offered us an unparalleled opportunity to embrace the community in accepting us as the Title Sponsor and one of our companies, JM Couture as the Presenting sponsor.”

Held on El Paseo in Palm Desert, CA-the epicenter of luxury retail in the greater Palm Springs area- this consumer-and industry-driven event is widely acknowledged as the premier West Coast fashion event of the season.

The seven-day fashion, beauty and lifestyle extravaganza kicks off under the “Big White Fashion Tent” on Sunday, March 16 with the Style and Beauty Bash where beauty pros will be lending their expertise to raise funds for local charities. The following days will be packed with an array of spectacular runway and trunk shows featuring the latest collections of top and emerging designers, as well as meet-and-greet cocktail receptions and after-parties.

Other highlights include El Paseo Night presents “Street Seen on El Paseo”, the appearance of Michael Costello and Project Runway designers, the Le Chien dog couture show, the Best of Saks Fifth Avenue, a showing of the collections of top graduating students from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), and internationally-acclaimed Zang Toi as Designer of the Week.
