The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events Oct. 17-23


Among the stylish San Francisco happenings to look forward to this week are multiple chances to indulge in tech and fashion, an enviable sample sale, a big bday party for a longtime local retailer, a vintage extravaganza and a live runway event across the Bay. Intrigued? You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.

  • For those interested in the intersection of style and technology, take your pic of events this week: on Tuesday, there’s an invite-only event with fashion app Pose at Heart in the Mission. We’re sure savvy style hounds will figure out a way to snag invites. Open to everyone, everywhere on Wednesday night is the next Posh Party from fashion app Poshmark. Come Thursday, you can network with those in the local tech and fashion industries during dueling events (or maybe attend both), thanks to the Digitally Chic Apps & Apps Meetup and the SFFMA’s Fashion Tech Meetup.
  • Thursday kicks off the Chaiken and Capone Sample Sale, a reason to duck out of work and dip into the New Montgomery location for deals on the local line’s 2011 samples in sizes two through six.
  • On Friday, celebrate a longtime local retailer’s two decades in San Francisco and latest venture with the Metier 20th Birthday & Web Shop Launch Party. We hear a slew of local style aficionados will be turning out for the shindig, which also includes gift bags to the first 50 partygoers and raffle prizes.
  • Two reasons to head east this week are well worth noting: A chance to scope local designers and artisans, a live runway show, open artists’ studios and food truck fare will be the draws during the latest installment of F3 at the Cottonmill on Friday night, while the Alameda Point Vintage Fashion Faire brings two days of vintage style and 50 vendors to the eastern island town.
