The SF Indie Fashion Calendar is always full of events to keep San Francisco fashion lovers busy with trunk sales, beauty happenings, fashion shows and places to shop from independent sources. This week is no exception. Here’s our pick of top events this week:
Support local journalism (a cause near and dear to our hearts) with a Mission Loc@l t-shirt, whose proceeds support fund reporting projects from the Mission-based news site.
Tell me you haven’t felt a little bit guilty about spending half a month’s pay check on a Saturday afternoon shopping spree? Lia Kes has so graciously offered to eliminate that guilt and replace it with warm fuzzy feelings. If you love the twisted wrap pictured above, simply bid on it and know that all proceeds go to benefit the Special Olympics.
Savvy follower of local fashion and locally-made products that you are, you probably don’t need us to tell you that there are companies right here within San Francisco city limits producing everything from horizontal-wale corduroys to artisan chocolates and kombucha tea. But what you may not have heard about yet is SFMade, a new non-profit organization whose entire mission is supporting and promoting the companies and manufacturers behind these products, as well as the much-needed jobs they create.
Along with making stylish travel gear ready for those upcoming summer trips, this local company donates 10 percent of its annual net profits to charitable causes. Want to peruse the collection in person? RSVP by May 31 for next week’s Give Trunk Show at Two Skirts, when 20 percent of the evening’s proceeds will benefit the San Francisco Parks Trust.
