The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events Aug. 22-28

This week, a long-awaited runway fashion event, Pinterest meet-up, fair trade shopping bazaar and an annual awards ceremony feting the local fashion community are here to get you out and about in independent, consciously-consumerist style. You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.

  • If you’re stuck on Pinterest, head east on Thursday to mingle IRL with likeminded pinners during the Bay Area Pinterest Meet-Up taking place at the Emeryville West Elm. We hear there will be deals to be had, but the real reason to go is putting faces with the names of your favorite Bay Area boards.
  • Shopping fair trade becomes an experience in the arts during the Fine Arts Museums’ Fair Trade Bazaar at the de Young. Head over on Friday and Saturday for jewelry, textiles and decorative accessories made by artisans from around the world.
  • Saturday night brings The Collection, the San Francisco Bay Area Fashion Network’s long-anticipated runway event featuring local names Daniel Sudar, Acta Non Verba and Joseph Domingo in three separate runway shows spanning the afternoon and evening. Set in the slick surroundings of the British Motor Car venue, the fashion shows start at 4 p.m. Proceeds from the event benefit nonprofit Dress for Success.
  • Come Sunday, party by the pool at the Hotel Phoenix in celebration of the local fashion scene during the San Francisco Fashion Awards, an annual event presented by Del Geronimo that highlights designers, models, makeup artists, bloggers, fashion show producers and others involved in Bay Area fashion throughout the year.

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