Well, hello, September. Suddenly, we’re almost in the middle of you. Quelle surprise! But onto this week’s events. Monday night, we’re heading to the SEE Eyewear VIP Opening Party on Market Street, where Project Runway‘s Mondo Guerra will be turning up. On Thursday, shop for a worthy cause during Conifer’s Fall Shopping Night benefiting the Homeless Prenatal Program. Once the weekend rolls around, prep for Saturday trunk shows from local sources such as Camilla Olson, Serial Cultura and Clary Sage Organics. Close it all out at the Urban Air Market, the massive outdoor independent fashion, design and art festival that hits Hayes Valley twice a year.
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.
A trunk show featuring local designers always catches our eye, but one featuring labels who show only a few times a year turns us into serious gawkers. Hence our laser-like focus on this Thursday’s trunk show at Silverman Gallery.
For spring, Oakland-based Serial Cultura by designer Jen Jennings continues to extol the virtues of prints, with colorful graphic patterns layered and either digitally printed or hand-silkscreened onto silks, silk knit and organic cotton.
Four emerging San Francisco designers will be showing off their creative talents tonight at the Silverman Gallery. Stop by to see the latest from Serial Cultura, Martha Davis, Micaela Greg and about-to-launch line Starts + Ravens.
