The Do List: SF Fashion Events Feb. 13-19


With Cupid doing his thing this week, it’s no surprise that there’s plenty to love coming up in the days ahead. Start the week off by watching fashion bloggers hit the runway during the Polyvore Live fashion show livestream on Monday evening. Come Tuesday, Lovesick 5 puts local fashion on display during its annual what’s-love-got-to-do-with-it Valentine’s Day soiree. On Thursday, local designer Sarah Liller debuts her latest at Loft 1513 while tech-savvy fashion fans gather together during this month’s Digitally Chic meetup. Once the weekend rolls around, celebrate with a visit to the Nooworks Sale and help fashion students produce their collections during Saturday’s Feed Our Fashion fundraiser.

See you out and about!

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

Among the stylish San Francisco happenings to look forward to this week are a jewelry class taught by a longtime local designer, a breast cancer fashion fundraiser, a Hayes Valley trunk show and a two-day indie shopping opp. Intrigued? You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.

  • Flex your D.I.Y. skills on Tuesday night at Workshop, where local jewelry designer Shana Astrachan teaches a one-night jewelry class – DIY Jewelry: Feathers, Leather and Chainsthat will leave you looping, connecting jump rings, distressing chains and generally on your way to at-home jewelry triumph. You’ll leave with two pairs of earrings and a necklace, as well as plenty of new skills.
  • On Friday, celebrate in the name of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Beats for Boobs, a fundraiser fashion event featuring a runway show that includes Bay Area labels such as Danielle the Dressmaker, Presh Design Collective, Miss G Designs and others. Held at mezzanine, this is the event to attend this week if you’d like to support a worthy cause while downing cocktails, dancing and engaging in general Friday night mayhem.
  • Also on Friday evening, a Metalsmith trunk show featuring the San Francisco-based jewelry line alongside art by painter Jennifer Mercede is a reason to swing by Ver Unica in Hayes Valley either on your way home or on your way out.
  • Finish off the week by shopping independent during Urban Bazaar’s two-day Vagabond Indie Craft Fair. Taking place on both Saturday and Sunday, the event showcases a variety of work (from Steampunk accessories to baby clothes) from socially-responsible, independent artists and designers, including Hikari Designs, Stone Valentine and By Nieves.
