This week marks the beginning of the annual San Francisco student fashion show season, which brings numerous opportunities each year to view innovative work coming out of Bay Area fashion programs. Along with that, the SF Indie Fashion Calendar promises plenty of fashion events, trunk shows, store openings and opportunities to shop from local sources in the days and weeks ahead.
- On Thursday, the first student fashion of the season arrives at the Galleria San Francisco Design Center. Runway 2011: Enchantment features work from San Francisco State University Apparel Design and Merchandising students in front of a crowd that topped 700 people last year. A portion of the proceeds from the show’s ticket sales will benefit Visons of La Moda and the free classes it offers to youth interested in the fashion industry.
- Also on Thursday, the latest Fashion Mash-Up from the San Francisco Fashion and Merchants Alliance takes over Pigment Cosmetics. Titled How to Navigate in the Local SF Fashion Industry, the evening promises a chance to learn from and mingle with speakers Del Geronimo, Darien Bamdad, Brad Carrick and Nick Stewart.
- Friday evening brings a sure-to-be-festive Earth Day launch party for new mobile app GreenGlamGo, whose social media shopping features allow you to shop sustainable, independent fashion while interacting with like-minded style fans on Facebook.
- Once Saturday sets in, Bay Area style bloggers can take a break from their screens and enjoy some IRL entertainment during a San Francisco Bay Area Fashion Blogger Meet-up at Andalu organized by Jess of Stylepint.
You can find details on all of these events and more happening this week on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
