A gorgeous sunny summer Sunday, a slew of designers and a crowd hungry for beer and D.I.Y. set the stage for last weekend’s Indie Mart at Thee Parkside in lower Potrero. After an eight-month hiatus, the well-attended event came back with gusto and a serious assortment of independent designers displaying their latest.
Summer’s here, and we’re ready to unwind with local fashion goodness (even if we’re wearing scarves instead of swimsuits). So look to the SF Indie Fashion Calendar this week for events supporting a longtime supporter of the local fashion scene in her battle against cancer, serious deals from a local fitness apparel brand, a fashion show featuring local swimwear and much more.
Anyone who’s rattled around the San Francisco independent fashion scene in recent years has no doubt experienced the D.I.Y.-driven, all-indie, uber-creative and, above all else, intensely fun projects of Kelly Malone, founder of Indie Mart shopping events and creative space Workshop. A stalwart supporter of the local, independent design scene, Malone now needs support of her own to fight an ongoing battle with cancer.
Just because you like to do-it-yourself shouldn’t have to mean doing it all by yourself. That’s the idea behind Workshop, a creative arts space opening on Saturday in San Francisco’s Western Addition
