The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events Dec. 13-19

With the holiday season in full swing, the SF Indie Fashion Calendar is full of events to keep San Francisco fashion lovers busy with trunk sales, beauty happenings, fashion shows and opportunities to shop from independent sources. Here’s our pick of top San Francisco fashion and style events this week:

  • Start the week off with an opulent evening of Mad Men-inspired, eco-friendly fashion during the 6th Annual Gorgeous and Green Gala. Tickets may be steep ($250 and up), but proceeds benefit Global Green, and the evening promises enticements such as an eco-fashion show and an appearance by Mad Men’s Alison Brie.
  • Kicking off on Tuesday at 440 Brannan Studio is the three-day gr.dano Holiday Size Sale, which means a chance to scoop up this local label’s architectural women’s apparel at up to 75 percent off retail. The catch? Only two sizes will be available each day, so you’ll have to head down to the SoMa location on the day that suits you best.
  • East Bay jewelry designer Melissa Joy Manning, best known for fashioning semi-precious and precious stones into organically-shaped baubles, opens her first retail store on Thursday in Berkeley. Swing by for wine and Champagne, as well as 20 percent off everything in the shop.
  • Once the weekend rolls around, we’d recommend knocking the last items off your list with a visit to a multi-designer shopping event featuring local talents. Two to try: The Renegade Craft Fair, taking place in SoMa at the Concourse Exhibition Center, and Indie Bazaar 3, which goes down at the Metreon. Both events will have a slew of worthy folks selling all manner of clothing, accessories and giftables for men, women and children.

You can find details on all of these events and more happening this week on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.

The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events This Week

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:

  • For a lesson in healthy eating served with a side of style, start the week off on Tuesday a visit to The Firm, where Cook SF will be showing off culinary concoctions from its Real Detox plan and the boutique’s new fall arrivals will be 25 percent off for one evening only.
  • Also on Tuesday, if you’ve found yourself in crush with a cute salesperson at a Union Street boutique anytime lately, your chance to ask the object of your affection out on a date and support a great cause at the same time comes in the form of the Date Night Auction benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s breast cancer research initiatives. The men and women who work in Union Street businesses will be putting themselves on the auction block during this fundraiser event at the Brick Yard.
  • Once the weekend rolls around, opportunities to indulge in local independent fashion abound. Head to Hayes Valley for the Cary Lane 2-Year Anniversary Party, complete with free drinks, appetizers, tunes and 30 percent off all men’s and women’s apparel. On Saturday, shop the afternoon away at Indie Bazaar, a free event in the Metreon featuring 40+ designers, a photo booth, live art and music.  That night, the Evolution of Fashion will be getting into the Halloween spirit early with an evening of “costume couture” by local designers such as Miss Velvet Cream and Gail B. Shrive. Guests are invited to don costumes, and prizes will be awarded to the three most creative looks.
