It’s quiet in local fashion event-land this week, so we’re tabling our usual Do List for a shorter shout-out to one party that deserves mention. On Friday, head into the weekend by perusing jewelry by designers Shana Astrachan and Kelly Nedderman during the Closing Party at Urban Interstice Gallery. It brings an end to this year’s holiday season pop-up of the designers’ work, which ranges from ultra-wearable everyday earrings to statement necklaces and artsy baubles.
If you’re looking to shop local and give items made by independent and fabulous Bay Area designers, artisans and creative folks this holiday season, the next three weeks are your oyster. There are a slew of great indie shop opps on the horizon, as well as a beauty fundraiser for public schools and a launch party you won’t want to miss. As always, you’ll find the details on these and many more great upcoming events on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
If you’ve been ever-so-patiently waiting for the opening of the new Shotwell store in the Mission, a pop-up shop at Engine Works this weekend brings an all-too-brief chance to shop the local retailer’s inventory.
NICE Collective fans, your adventure begins at 2111 Market in the Castro. The San Francisco-based label’s latest pop-up retail quest, the Mobile Supply Unit (MSU), has silently landed into this relatively concealed space at Market and Church.
At the collective space The Common last Thursday during a Storefront pop-up shop event hosted by DNA, we were taken with jewelry designer Kate Ellen and her array of intriguing jewelry for men. Recently listed among the ‘Best of San Francisco 2010’ for fashion and beauty by 7×7 magazine, the self-taught jewelry designer – who, it should be noted, designs for both men and women – gave us the run down on her men’s pieces.
