SF Indie Fashion News Roundup

Irena-Kudlicki-NecklaceWe’re obsessed with this wine-storing bra. If you see us with double d’s next time, you’ll know what’s up. In other news….

Reports from NBC Bay Area of a fashion designer possibly caught up in drugs (oh my!) and missing in the Bay Area (the scandal!) caught our attention yesterday.

Speaking of NBC Bay Area, we are pleased to announce that the revamped destination for local news is now carrying select content from SF Indie Fashion. Check the site’s Around Town section for more great local fashion and shopping coverage.

Congrats to the winners of the San Francisco Fashion Awards, announced over the weekend. We’re glad to see local designers and fashion supporters getting recognized for their hard work.

Amy Leblanc, who won the best blogger award, shared what we think are some provocative, interesting and very worthwhile thoughts on the event and whether it cast a wide enough net this year.

Up-and-comers, take note: we hear that Arieff Communications is looking for a fall intern with an interest or experience in fashion and public relations.

A San Francisco destination for hard-to-find denim labels since 2006, Self Edge has opened up a new store in New York that was profiled this week on New York magazine’s The Cut.

The Museum of Craft and Folk Art has launched an online store. We are especially enamored of the Irena Kudlicki necklace (pictured), part of the museum’s summer collection now available for purchase in-store and online.

AliceandIsa now offers private parties for groups of eight or more. Tap the ladies behind this new online retail destination for local designers to schedule a private showing, and you’ll receive 20 percent off your purchases during the event.

Appel and Frank’s Chic Summer Soiree shopping event is coming up on Aug. 13. We’ll be announcing this again and again in the coming days, but we’re happy to be able to offer all SF Indie Fashion readers free tickets (reg. $10) to the event. Just use the discount code SFINDIEFASHION when you RSVP on the web site.

The folks at the Chron have been hitting up all kinds of indie-minded fashion events these days. Check out their take on two recent events – the Green Gala at UC Berkeley and the Fashion Food Wine – here and here.
