And just like that, bye bye to February. As we March ahead, we turn to the SF Indie Fashion Calendar in search of events sure to keep San Francisco fashion lovers entertained. Read on for our weekly dose of trunk sales, beauty happenings, fashion shows and places to shop from independent sources. Our pick of top San Francisco fashion events this week:
- Mid-week, the third round of Fashion Feud selects the last local designer to head to the upcoming finals, while the monthly etsy Craft Bar night, Fashion Rules Party at Neiman Marcus and Bush + Leavenworth’s showcasing of its spring collection for men and a selection of art curated by the label’s founder Neth Nom at D-Structure offer plenty of chances to get out and about and indulge in local style.
- Once the weekend rolls around, events combining fashion, shopping and worthy causes abound. First up, there’s L’Affaire, a fashion show benefiting Project Night Night’s programs supporting children.
- Saturday’s Mission United fete at Public Works (wow has this place been busy lately) offers a chance to celebrate one of our favorite neighborhoods with food, music, fashion and general Mission-approved debauchery. The fashion component of the event includes a trunk show and style installations by Five & Diamond, The Mission Statement, Isso, Miranda Caroligne and Unavakin, among others. Proceeds benefit worthy recipients such as the San Francisco General Hospital and its Dr. Rick Psychiatric Department Volunteer & Rehab Services, Root Division and SFSmiles.
- Over the weekend, two daytime shopping events give San Franciscans reason to escape the City. Head north on Saturday to Greenbrae for the Marin Store Sample Sale, featuring local labels and designers such as Amy Fink, ANYI LU, Bettina, Gold & Citrus, Isharya, juleselin, Kathy Kamei, MENK and Mette Vangso. On both Saturday and Sunday, the annual Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale means a chance to hunt for secondhand and vintage treasures on offer during what’s considered to be the largest rummage sale in Northern California while helping to raise much-needed funds for the museum’s many programs.
