After you’ve figured out how to thank dear mom for all she’s done, there are plenty of ways to indulge in local fashion this week. For that, we turn to the SF Indie Fashion Calendar. In the days ahead, we’ll be prepping for a fun night of wearable crafting, a Berkeley trunk show at and a much-anticipated annual student fashion showcase.
- The week stays relatively quiet until Thursday, when you can head to the monthly installment of the etsy Craft Bar at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art. During the evening event, learn how to screenprint imagery by featured artist Sister Corita onto posters, t-shirts and tote bags.
- On Friday and Saturday, scope out wearable art during the de Young Museum’s ARTWEAR event taking place all day in the Piazzoni Murals Room. You’ll find textile art, apparel and jewelry on offer from such artists as Judith Content, Angelina DeAntonis, Carol Lee Shanks, Jenne Giles, Alice Roche, Ava Austin, Marna Clark and Reiko Miyagi.
- The Rue Atelier Mother’s Day Trunk Show offers a reason to head east on Saturday. The Berkeley boutique will be hosting Bay Area designer Maureen Dougherty and her sustainable apparel line, as well as San Francisco jewelry designer Stephanie Arata. Sustainable wine and vegan snacks are an added draw.
- Also on Saturday, the Academy of Art University welcomes the public to its annual Spring Fashion Show, featuring collections from graduating students. Always a polished show, the event offers an opportunity to view inventive apparel by young talents – for free. But here’s the rub: seating is first-come, first-served, and the house is usually packed. So if you want in, we’d recommend heading down to the school’s Brannan Street tent well in advance of the 2 p.m. start time.
You can find details on all of these events and more happening this week on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
