Fashion Valley incorporates the best aspects of the San Diego culture and lifestyle. The destination’s renovation is inspired by the landscape features of the region, the nearby river, the mild climate and history of gardening in the area. Flexible outdoor spaces featuring resort-like amenities and public art encourage al fresco shopping and dining, community gatherings, and relaxing in an upscale setting. The architecture reflects a simple use of form inspired by the legacy of the local modernist architect Irving Gil, with a refined palette of colors and materials. Elegant but casual, the updated design conveys a sense of timelessness that continues to make this place the premiere retail venue in San Diego and a beloved landmark for generations to come.
