The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events Jan. 10-16

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. Here’s our pick of top San Francisco fashion events this week:

  • Get the week in style with the return of Fashion Feud, the live showdown between local designers competing to make the best original garment during a brisk hour-long challenge. Round one features designers Crystal Hermann and Mary M. Yanez and goes down at Rickshaw Stop, where judges Maggie Alhadeff of Mimosas in Bed and Sex + Design and Stacy Lee of Sex + Design will choose the winning look. Further enticements: the event is free and open to the 18+ crowd.
  • Come Thursday, an unusual pairing of attractions takes place at Makeup Gourmet during the SoMa studio’s Cash for Gold event. Yes, it sounds a bit like the beginning of a late-night infomercial, but think of it this way: you can get hair and makeup advice while recycling any unwanted jewelry in your stash into cash that you can then use to further beautify….or buy draanks…or whatever. Either way, you win.
  • Once you’ve made it to the weekend, you can celebrate independent art and jewelry with a stop by the Inner Sunset’s Pearl Gallery, where a one-year celebration will be taking place on Saturday. We hear dessert wines and matching treats will be served to sweeten the deal.

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