Dear imaginary fashion diary,
Where on earth can I find Costume Dept. sequin leggings in San Francisco? Sigh.
SF Indie Fashion
As must be more than abundantly clear by now, we love having the scoop on where to find our favorite independent labels from beyond the Bay Area hiding out in San Francisco boutiques, so it goes without saying that we were thrilled to learn that Russion Hill’s Tedda Hughes just began stocking the rock-sexy leg coverings of Hollywood-based Costume Dept.
“Just in time for Halloween, holidays, etc. They are so very gorgeous,” owner Tedda tells us.
Best known for limited-edition leggings in far-out fabrics, stage-worthy prints, sequins and lace, the up-and-coming company has launched its first full collection for fall. Among the Costume Dept. Autumn/Winter 2009 pieces ($46 and up) you’ll find gracing the racks at Tedda Hughes is a fringe top that’s just begging to be spun around on the dance floor (or, more likely for us, a less-crowded sidewalk outside the bar).
