Among the stylish San Francisco happenings to look forward to this week are a jewelry class taught by a longtime local designer, a breast cancer fashion fundraiser, a Hayes Valley trunk show and a two-day indie shopping opp. Intrigued? You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
- Flex your D.I.Y. skills on Tuesday night at Workshop, where local jewelry designer Shana Astrachan teaches a one-night jewelry class – DIY Jewelry: Feathers, Leather and Chains – that will leave you looping, connecting jump rings, distressing chains and generally on your way to at-home jewelry triumph. You’ll leave with two pairs of earrings and a necklace, as well as plenty of new skills.
- On Friday, celebrate in the name of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Beats for Boobs, a fundraiser fashion event featuring a runway show that includes Bay Area labels such as Danielle the Dressmaker, Presh Design Collective, Miss G Designs and others. Held at mezzanine, this is the event to attend this week if you’d like to support a worthy cause while downing cocktails, dancing and engaging in general Friday night mayhem.
- Also on Friday evening, a Metalsmith trunk show featuring the San Francisco-based jewelry line alongside art by painter Jennifer Mercede is a reason to swing by Ver Unica in Hayes Valley either on your way home or on your way out.
- Finish off the week by shopping independent during Urban Bazaar’s two-day Vagabond Indie Craft Fair. Taking place on both Saturday and Sunday, the event showcases a variety of work (from Steampunk accessories to baby clothes) from socially-responsible, independent artists and designers, including Hikari Designs, Stone Valentine and By Nieves.
