Earth Day may be officially in the rear view, but don’t expect the San Francisco love for eco-friendly fashion to fade. In fact, this week puts the spotlight on earth-conscious apparel, thanks to the return of the annual Discarded to Divine gala and fashion show, where apparel and accessories made from cast-off clothing and textiles will be auctioned off to benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco’s many life-altering programs for those in need. Along with D2D, Wells Fargo hosts Transformations: A Fashion Showcase, featuring evening wear designs made using Goodwill donations by City College designers in collaboration with Turning Heads at-risk youth. There’s also a grand re-opening for eco-friendly Noe Valley shop Loft 1513, a D.I.Y. nail night at Mira Mira, the latest Raw SF and many others.
Friday and Saturday only, a Mira Mira New Year’s Sale is the Mission boutique’s biggest-ever. Stop in for 50 percent off everything in the shop.
