Phew. We haven’t done a news roundup since, well, since we started tweeting. That’s what happens when you start using twitter. But we’d like to get back into the groove. So away we go…
– Interested in becoming an SF Indie Fashion intern, guest blogger or contributor in some other fashion (photography, ad sales…the possibilities are many)? If you’d like to explore ways you can work with us and benefit from it at the same time, get in touch. We’re looking for collaborators of all kinds. You can contact the powers that be using the contact form.
– Candystore Collective is getting its sale on this weekend. Stop by the Mission boutique or use the coupon code MAYSALE at checkout online to score 25 percent off on denim, dresses and t-shirts through Sunday. We hear this is a new thing for the store from owner Jennifer J. – new merch is almost never discounted at the store, so get in while the gettin’s good.
– The Craft Gym is back! Yay! But not at, uh, the Craft Gym. Instead, the folks behind the crafting studio that once was will be bringing their talents to montly events at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art (which happens to have a kick ass store, by the way). Go here to check out all the upcoming summer sessions.
– We hear that 7×7 is looking for all kinds of creative people to contribute to the magazine’s July This is Your San Francisco issue. If you’re a writer or a photographer who’d like to submit material about your town or neighborhood, you’ve got until June 12.
– We’ve got word that Arara will be relocating over the Church Street sometime soon. It’s just a few blocks away from the current San Jose location, but we’d expect the move to bring a lot more visibility to the shop, which happens to be stocked with some prett-ay cool art-meets-clothing finds, feather jewelry, custom leather tool belts (you gotta see ’em) and bags for men and women.
– Speaking of moving, we are hoping that the rumors are right and that we will soon be seeing She-Bible in the old Church Street Apothecary’s space before long….
– We are really digging Light Vision these days. It’s a new-ish online store that sells mostly local independent designers. We hope to have more to tell you about the store and its founders soon.
– Artists Julie Cloutier and Clare Nereim have launched a micro-line called Stymie that we’re going to be telling you more about soon.
– SF Indie Fashion sponsor YesStyle.com is having a crazy huge sale on its Korean fashion brands through Monday. Be sure to check it out.
– And last but not least, there are tons of cool events happening this weekend, including trunk shows and sample sales from Rebecca Minkoff, Modaspa, Feral Childe and Circadian Studios. We hope you’ll check out the SF Indie Fashion Calendar for all the details.
