With the holiday season in full swing, the SF Indie Fashion Calendar is full of events to keep San Francisco fashion lovers busy with trunk sales, beauty happenings, fashion shows and opportunities to shop from independent sources. Here’s our pick of top San Francisco fashion and style events this week:
- On Tuesday, indulge your interest in sustainable fashion in EFactor’s Entrepreneurs in Fashion: Building a Brand through Sustainability panel and networking event featuring SFSU’s Connie Ulasewicz, designer Jasmin Zorlu, Sally Rosen of Discarded to Divine and others.
- The week ahead promises several notable jewelry sample sales. On Wednesday, Dame showcases its latest during a sample sale event at Cocoon Urban Day Spa. When Friday rolls around, a trip up north to Petaluma will land you deals at the Robindira Unsworth Atelier Holiday Sample Sale, where you’ll find the designer’s bohemian-luxe jewelry priced from 40 to 60 percent off. And on Saturday, a Melissa Joy Manning Sample Sale offers up a sparkly reason to head to the East Bay for the afternoon.
- Beginning Friday and running through Dec. 7, the Arts of Fashion Foundation’s 2010 Symposium and Competition brings a barrage of noteworthy emerging and established fashion talent to the City by the Bay. A series of masters classes with such enviable teachers as Matthew Ames and Julie Perrin (of Hermes) is open to those lucky enough to score coveted available spots, while lectures and discussions take place throughout the five-day event. Capping it all off, a fashion show at the Bentley Reserve showcases work from an international roster of student designers competing for prestigious scholarships and internships.
- Close out the weekend by picking up gifts for everyone on your list during Saturday night’s Chillin’ Productions Holiday Show. Come Sunday, Holiday Capsule takes place in SoMa, and the Urban Cottage SF boutique designer event hits the Richmond District. All three shopping events feature a bevy of local designers offering apparel, accessories and giftables for men, women and children.
