Orange County has never been a stranger to high-end fashion and beauty, and last week I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of day two of OC Fashion Week. With a panoramic ocean and sunset backdrop and poolside catwalk, day two was held at The Coliseum at The Resort at Pelican Hill.
Emerging OC fashion designers featured incredible collections of luxurious resort wear and accessories at this runway show, including Dave Welch of b.spoke who I had the privilege of modeling for.
Dave is my designer and good friend, and he’s been designing clothes for me for 20 years. Whether for million dollar client meetings, a social event, wedding or “casual” meetings, he knows my style and always makes me look GREAT! You could say I’m a bit addicted to b.spoke!

I was asked what the best part of my evening was, and I couldn’t single out only one thing. Hanging out with “the guys” getting ready for the event. Wearing an AMAZING suit. Watching what goes on “behind the scenes”. Seeing my family and friends in the audience. Joking with the makeup artist. It was truly a night to remember!

A portion of the evening’s ticket sales benefitted the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and Orangewood Foundation, both charities that benefit children. Being a father of three healthy children (one only 6 months old), I m blessed, and anything I can do to support children really resonates with me. I am so thankful to have been a part of OC Fashion Week!
