El Camino Real: The New Rodeo Drive?

This Friday at 5pm you'll want to be in the San Clemente Art Supply parking lot. No there's not a gang fight going or a drug deal going down - what do you take me for? Two former Saddleback College students turned designers will be joining forces for "Day and Night: Fashion Show of Joseph Morris and Damien Mathis". The event name refers to the yin and yang of the two designers: Joseph Morris is creating the "Day" look using fabrics such as hand dyed silks, velvet, earth toned cottons and bright colors. Damien's line, "Night", is the opposite, incorporating leather materials in darker colors.

Joseph came up with the idea of the show as a means to get his name out and as a way to set aright some common misnomers about fashion, mainly that "it is okay for a dude to sew".

The event promises 11 artists showing and selling art, hors d'oevres from local catering company "Grass Roots", and a performance by Kai Kalama of American Idol. While enjoying the food and art you can play Who's Who in fashion as there will be many familiar faces from the fashion industry present. The show will consist of three runway shows set tentatively for 6pm, 8pm, and 10pm.

There's nothing better than seeing a fellow Saddleback alum take life by the horns and make things happen. Who knows? This could be the beginnings of San Clemente as a bustling fashion hub. Look out NY! Move over Paris! El Camino Real could be the new Rodeo Drive.
