Going all night is overrated. It’s going all day that’s the real challenge. To help with that, there’s Lesley Evers, a Berkeley-based designer whose easy-to-wear dresses, tunics and skirts pair poppy prints and cheery hues with updated takes on retro-minded silhouettes.
Bay Area fashion fans won’t be bored this week, thanks to the sheer variety of style-minded events on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar in the days ahead. What’s in store? Oh just the City’s biggest live fashion competition, a nightclub runway show featuring local designers, a vintage fashion fair, a noteworthy Berkeley trunk show, the preview night for Discarded to Divine and much, much more.
Our very-visual, chatter-free snap judgment of the day: Berkeley-based label Momoca.
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.
East Bay Style Collective’s Summer 2009 Fashion, Food and Wine event goes down this weekend.
