If you’re in the mood to celebrate local style, this is your week to shine, thanks to a bouquet of parties in honor of worthy Bay Area fashion and beauty destinations. And as always, the week ahead brings ample opportunity to shop from local sources. You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar, and we’ve called out a few of our favorite upcoming San Francisco fashion events below.
- On Tuesday, the self-tanning experts behind Beautisol join forces with Russian Hill’s Beauty Company for a Facebook Fan Appreciation Party. To partake, just “like” both hosts on Facebook, then head over for an evening of food, drink, goodie bags and self-tanning tips from Beautisol’s Sinead Norenius.
- On Wednesday, longtime local jewelry line viv&ingrid celebrates the opening of its first retail shop with a party at the new Oxford Hall location in Berkeley.
- SoMa, the Mission and Pacific Heights each play host on Thursday night to oh-so-stylish events with appeal for different crowds. Retail studio and fashion production house The Factory toasts to its first six months with a Warhol-themed shindig on 4th St., while Clary Sage Organics clinks glasses over its three-year anniversary on Fillmore Street. Last but not least, avant garde fashion is on display at the Mission’s Five & Diamond shop during a Pure Vile trunk show, which promises the New York label’s far-out, one-0f-a-kind accessories made using such macabre materials as doll parts, lace and bone.
- Top the week off with the array of vendors selling local apparel, accessories, food and much, much more during the latest Treasure Island Flea.
