The Do List: SF Fashion Events Dec. 5-11

An always-stunning sustainable style gala, San Francisco fashion blogger must-dos, in-store parties and holiday shopping events are cheerfully crowding the calendar this week. As always, you’ll find the details on these and many more great upcoming events on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.

  • Much of the City’s glitterati will be glamming up on Tuesday night for Global Green’s 7th Annual Gorgeous & Green Gala. Tickets ($1,000+) for the dinner extravaganza don’t come cheap, but the party-goers who spring for the experience will be treated to an eco fashion show, music by Michelle Branch, food by such chefs as Michael Mina and lots of other goodies. Proceeds benefit Global Green’s projects in San Francisco and beyond.
  • Two events are sure to entice San Francisco fashion bloggers out on the town this week. First up, on Wednesday, Jackson Square’s La Boutique hosts the Polyvore x iFabbo Blogger Happy Hour, which is already drawing RSVPs from stylish staffers of companies such as Google, ModCloth, Gap and Salesforce.com, as well as many Bay Area bloggers we heart. Then on Sunday, the SFFMMA teams up with SeeZenn to host a Geek Style Lounge Launch & Holiday Party at the Westfield Centre. A blogging panel featuring Mira of the Beauty Bohemian, Savvy in San Francisco’s Melissa, the Chic Spy’s Mignon Gould and others will be a key part of the event.
  • In true holiday season style, the rest of the week is full of parties and chances to shop local. Getting festive with independent fashion will be oh-so-easy, thanks to holiday parties and shindigs from Pladra, Fiat Lux, Conifer, Secession Art + Design, The Factory, Clary Sage Organics and Boutiika at Azalea. We’re gonna keep it simple let you peep all the detes on the cal.

The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events Dec. 6-Dec. 12

With the holiday season in full swing, the SF Indie Fashion Calendar is full of events to keep San Francisco fashion lovers busy with trunk sales, beauty happenings, fashion shows and opportunities to shop from independent sources. Here’s our pick of top San Francisco fashion and style events this week:

  • On Thursday night, fans of D.I.Y., local design and African penguins (which, let’s face it, completely rule) will descend upon the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park for a 21+ event featuring a bevy of designers and distractions curated by Kelly Malone during the Indie Mart D.I.Y. & Design Holiday Night. We hear the tickets ($12) to this event could sell out, so you may want to buy them in advance if you want to go.
  • Guys and girls will find chances to shop some of our favorite independent brands on the cheap this week, thanks to a trio of stylish San Francisco sample sales happening over the weekend. The annual Rebecca Beeson sample sale promises the local label’s uber-California apparel at up to 70 percent off, while a Goorin Brothers sale will deck you out in the perfect head-topper for less and an Obey sample sale going down at Jack’s gives guys a chance to suit up in the much-loved label’s gear at a discount.
