If you like a session beside the runway, this week’s for you. The only problem: a trio of worthy shows on the same night. We’ll let you decide how to fill up your dance card. Will it be the invite-only Academy of Art Fashion Show (there’s a public repeat on Sunday, though minus the presence of special guest such as Alexander McQueen’s Sara Burton), Runway 2012: Defined featuring San Francisco State University graduating designers’ collections or Bianca Starr’s Spring Forward Fashion Show with apparel from Wonderland, Sui Generis, Density Dept and Top Shelf? While you’re figuring that one out, look ahead to the weekend, when you’ll have the chance to engage in more independent fashion adventures during the return of Artwear at the de Young and Urban Air Market.
After you’ve figured out how to thank dear mom for all she’s done, there are plenty of ways to indulge in local fashion this week. For that, we turn to the SF Indie Fashion Calendar. In the days ahead, we’ll be prepping for a fun night of wearable crafting, a Berkeley trunk show at and a much-anticipated annual student fashion showcase.
