VIP Shopping Services and Shopping Tours

San Diego has upped its game in the unique shopping experiences for the fashion-minded individuals.

By: Sandra Veum, Personal Shopper

One-on-One Shopping with a Fashion Concierge

The city's style has grown from just flip-flops and t-shirts to a more polished, sophisticated and urban vibe. Adding in the mild weather and an average temperature of 72 degrees, lets shoppers stroll the outdoor malls and shopping blocks year-round. Creative groups of individuals and businesses have taken advantage of this by creating some unique shopping experiences to set San Diego apart from the rest.

Fashion Valley

For a VIP shopping experience, look no further than the luxury shopping center, Fashion Valley, centrally located in Mission Valley. Known as San Diego's luxury mall, Fashion Valley offers a collection of more than 200 stores with a variety of trendy restaurants, featured in a beautiful outdoor setting. The center offers a VIP one-on-one shopping service with a dream team of professional wardrobe stylists, each boasting more than 20 years of industry experience. This complimentary service pairs you with a personal wardrobe stylist who will escort you on a two-hour custom shopping tour of the center. Learn what shops best fit your needs, receive styling and closet tips along the way, and be introduced to new stores that fit your lifestyle and budget. Arianne Cousin, Director of Marketing and Business Development, says, "It is important for our customers to have a high-caliber shopping experience and the year-round complimentary shopping program is a fantastic way to get the most of your time at Fashion Valley."
