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.
