Considering the name of this blog, you might think that everything posted here would stick strictly to independent designers in or around San Francisco, stores that carry their work and events that are of interest to the scene. Not true. While, I have no intention of making this a mainstream shopping blog, fashion site or comprehensive guide to San Francisco in any way, I do plan from time to time to post about fashion- and San Francisco-related topics that are completely outside the indie fashion realm.
Why? Well, the simplest way to put it is to say that what’s going on in the city and in the larger, mainstream world of fashion has an impact and influence on the indie world. Of course, it works the other way around, too. Ideas percolate up from the independent, creative people who design their lines regardless of mainstream success. At the same time, popular culture informs independent, creative peoples’ ideas all the time. And some of my personal favorite art and design concepts are the results of some maverick artist taking pop-culture and saying, let’s rumble.
I’ll return to this topic in the future.
