If it’s local fashion you seek, there’s much to do in the week ahead. Start on Tuesday night with a visit to Terra Gallery for the Effen Vodka party and a showing of new work by San Francisco designer Bacca Da Silva. Later in the week, load up on last-minute looks for Burning Man during Wild Feather’s Pre-Playa Sale, shop local during 440 Brannan’s Mission Meets SoMa event featuring designers from The Mission Statement, scope out style on the silver screen at the San Francisco International Fashion Film Festival, meet the creative world of Fashionist’s Mai Le as part of the latest SF Creative Mornings event and, last but not least, get inspired by the magnificently edgy Japanese fashion on display as part of this year’s two-day J-Pop Summit.
Instead of big box mayhem and madness, you’ll find us using Black Friday and ensuing holiday shopping opps to suss out deals from local designers and independent boutiques – many of whom only have sales a few times a year. Read on for our growing list* of top Black Friday, Cyber Monday and holiday deals from locals.
San Francisco boutiques are throwing down this week with an array of parties, trunk shows and celebrations featuring style-minded fashion bloggers, independent designers and a slew of wish-list-worthy accessories. You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
For Spring/Summer 2012, San Francisco’s gr.dano embraces its roots with a collection that relies on neutral hues and structural details in easy-to-wear silhouettes that manage to be relaxed, yet supremely polished.
Summah, summah-ty-ime. This week we hope to be able to press pause on the space heater humming away in the corner and welcome a hint of sun. But no matter what happens, we’ll be warming up to local fashion events. A few of our favorite San Francisco fashion happenings follow, and, as always, you’ll find the details on these and more on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
