Shopping Experiences for the Fashionistas...

VIP Shopping Services and Shopping Tours

San Diego is increasingly turning into a mecca for fashion-minded individuals.

By: Sandra Veum, Personal Shopper

One-on-One Shopping with a Fashion Concierge

The city's style has grown from flip-flops and t-shirts to a more polished, sophisticated vibe. Plus the mild weather, with an average temperature of 72 degrees, lets shoppers stroll the outdoor malls and shopping blocks year-round. Creative groups of individuals and companies 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 upscale mall, Fashion Valley offers a collection of more than 200 stores with a variety of restaurants, featured in a beautiful outdoor setting. The center recently added 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 free service pairs you with a personal wardrobe stylist who will escort you on a two hour complimentary 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. Lourdes Menendez, 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." To enjoy Fashion Valley's personal VIP shopping service, please contact Lourdes Menendez at lmenendez@simon.com.
