Day two of the San Francisco Fashion Week runway shows drew an audience itching to see the week-long event’s ready-to-wear lineup. Designs from Victor’s Promise, MIKELSEN, Alphyn Industries, Boditecture by Wen Guo, CHUI CHUI by Tracy Wong and Alyssa Nicole paraded down the runway to electro-industrial beats while guests lit up the venue as they snapped pictures with their phones.
The show began with the convertible fashions of Boditecture, with models untying, unzipping and unwrapping their cocktail dresses to become elegant evening gowns, a two-piece ensemble and a bathing-suit ensemble perfect for poolside lounging.
The rest of the night offered a variety of looks, ranging from the Victorian Goth-inspired dresses of CHUI CHUI to the blush-worthy undergarments of men’s loungewear designer Victor’s Promise. MIKELSEN designer Michael Seneriches showed San Francisco-in-the-70s-inspired patterns with modern twists, while Alyphn Industries appealed to the gadget hungry onlookers in the crowd with jeans and jackets sporting built-in Smartphone sleeves and pockets. Closing the night was 19-year-old designer Alyssa Casares, whose line Alyssa Nicole dazzled with 30’s-inspired cocktail dresses and soft silhouettes that would compliment any frame.
Standouts from the night include CHUI CHUI’s black lace bandeau paired with a layered skirt and silk-wrap tie, MIKELSEN’s one-shoulder dress in blue and green that at first appeared to be painted on and Alyssa Nicole’s ruby-red cinched-waist cocktail dress with cut-out sleeves and layered skirt.
