Recap: Cody Sai’s Bay Area Launch


On Friday, Berkeley native and New York-based independent designer Cody Adler-McAllister brought selections from his newly-launched Cody Sai label to the Bay Area for a cocktail reception at Ideas in Motion Studio.

During the event, Adler-McAllister (below, middle) and models donning spring 2010 Cody Sai looks mingled with the crowd over cocktails. We look forward to seeing more from this F.I.T. grad, who just happens to count legendary Dutch-born designer Koos van den Akker (of Cosby sweater fame) as his chief mentor.
