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.
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.
