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.

The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events July 11-17

Like clique-busters chillin’ with a new crew on summer nights, Bay Area fashion folks and fine artists are hanging out together more than ever these days. This week, you’ll spot it happening at community-minded gallery opening in Alameda, during a fashion show in an Oakland arts space, in a hip Mission boutique and at the first Prepare for the Playa event of the summer. As always, you’ll find the details and more upcoming San Francisco fashion events on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.

  • While fine arts and fashion are the theme this week, you can still get your shop on during Simply Chic’s Chanel Lovers event on Wednesday night and at Gump’s on Thursday evening, when Jendarling Bags presents its latest luxury garment bags and accessories at the iconic department store during the EQ Show launch event.
  • Thursday’s opening party for the new Redux Studios & Gallery in Alameda brings a reason to hit the highway. A project from St. Vinvent de Paul of Alameda County, the venue sells apparel, accessories and art made from recycled and reclaimed materials, offers community workshops, monthly art shows and affordable studio space for artists.
  • On Friday, fashion and the arts once again join forces during F3 at the Cotton Mill, which features a slew of local artists and a fashion show that includes local designer Ken Chen and Zoe Hong, among others. Another chance to take in fashion and fine art at the same time comes from the Mission’s Belljar, which opens its Precipice show amid its selection of lovely wearables and items for the home with a reception on Friday evening.
  • If Burning Man is on your to-do list this summer, you can start getting prepped at Sunday’s Prepare for the Playa event, full of “burner-preneurs” selling apparel, accessories and accoutrements for the annual desert extravaganza.
