SF Fashion Events: Secession 5th Anniversary, Beyond the Fence + More

For independent fashion fun this week in San Francisco, we’ve got our eye on events for work and play. Wednesday’s SFFAMA Google+ Workshop at FIDM promises tips and tricks for leveraging the social media platform to its fullest. On Friday, a Lower Bernal/Mission destination for independent design celebrates five years with the Secession 5th Anniversary Party full of art, jewelry and apparel by established and emerging artists and designers. Once the weekend rolls around, pick up bits and bobs for Burning Man at the Beyond the Fence Trunk Show, hunt down deals at the BCBG Ella Moss Sample Sale or check out baubles and Serial Cultura apparel in the East Bay with a stop by Shibumi Gallery’s Summer Party.

Find details on these and other upcoming San Francisco fashion events waiting on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar. And of course, as you know, it doesn’t stop there. We’re adding new fashion happenings all the time, so check back often.

The Do List: SF Fashion Events Feb. 6-12

Yes, Fashion Week is kicking off in #NYC. But there are still reasons to love life in San Francisco. If you’re computer-bound, as I often am, spend free minuteswatching livestreams from New York fashion blogger conference IFBCon and the Fashion Week runway show featuring local alums of Academy of Art University. Also enticing and on the horizon are Thursday’s Pre-Valentine’s Day Party at Photobooth and, once the weekend rolls around, the return of the always-fruitful BCBG & Ella Moss Sample Sale and the most recent I.R.L. Black Pyramid Pop-Up, sure to prompt fans of recent vintage to make a beeline for the Haight.

See you out and about!

The Do List: SF Fashion Events Jan. 30-Feb. 5

Three things I generally can’t get enough of: retro-inspired fashion, deals on local designers and getting seriously geeky about blogging. Good thing there’s a little of each one on the horizon this week. The 2nd annual Lesley Evers Studio Sample Sale in Berkeley means a chance to save up to 80 percent on the designer’s v. cute printed dresses, skirts and tops. In San Francisco, I’ll be speaking at Thursday’s FIDM fashion blogging event with Fashionista Lab, Calivintage, FashionablyAshley and iFabbo. Last but not least, Friday’s Girl Power Hour brings a chance to network and unwind at the same time.

Now that ’12 is officially underway (’cause we all know the first week doesn’t really count), San Francisco fashion events are popping up after a holiday hiatus. This week, we’re betting local fashion fans will carve out time for the launch event of a new fashion and technology accelerator program, the second SF Fashion + Tech event and the always-fun annual sample sale at the Oakland studio of Verrieres & Sako.
