The Desert Woman’s Show celebrates its 16th anniversary on Saturday, February 17, at the Classic Club with a full day of health, beauty – and plenty of shopping!

Presented by Desert Vein & Vascular Institute, this festive event features local fashion boutiques, anti-aging specialists, fitness and wellness experts, and leading health care providers, offering a full day of beauty makeovers and complimentary health screenings. 

The first 500 people to register online will receive their general admission ticket to the Desert Woman’s Show free, courtesy of long-time sponsor Desert Care Network. Attendees can also purchase a combination ticket that includes the ever-popular Greater Palm Springs Food & Wine tasting area featuring your valley favorites. 

Headlining this year’s event is fashion designer and reality television personality Michael Costello. With the encouragement of his mother, Costello started designing clothes at the age of two by drawing dresses on his bedroom walls. By the age of 15, he opened his first store on North Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, and before long, was making custom pieces for celebrities such as Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Toni Braxton, Barry Manilow, Suzanne Somers and Faye Dunaway, to name a few. 

In 2010, Costello appeared on the 8th season of Project Runway where he placed fourth before moving on to place second in the Project Runway All Stars. A major turning point that garnered nationwide attention for the rising star was when he dressed Beyonce in a white lace and nude mesh dress for the 56th annual Grammy Awards in 2014. Today his clientele includes Lady Gaga, Kate Hudson and Mariah Carey.  His brand is available at Saks Fifth Avenue, and he recently launched a new summer collection with online retailer REVOLVE.

Be sure to gather at the event’s main stage Saturday afternoon for MICHAEL COSTELLO: Empowering Women Through Fashion, celebrating women from all walks of life and making them feel confident and beautiful. POP UP will follow the fashion presentation.

The Desert Woman’s Shows third annual charity golf tournament tees off on Saturday morning, February 17. Open to both women and men, the event will benefit The Unforgettables Foundation, dedicated to helping families after the loss of a child. The fabulous day in the sun will conclude with a cocktail awards celebration, and golfers can shop and sip before the day is done. 

The 16th annual Desert Woman’s Show opens for VIP guests on Saturday, February 17, at 9:30 a.m. with general admission at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m.  This annual event is graciously sponsored by Desert Vein & Vascular Institute, Desert Care Network, Spotlight 29 Casino, Hightower Financial, Clark’s Nutrition and Barbara Rogers.  Media partners include CBS Local 2, Desert Golf & Tennis Magazine, CV Weekly and Desert Health. We hope to see you there!
