Good Looks: Spring Comes Early to Golden Gate Park


While we’re waiting for spring to come along and brighten up our days, what better to tide us over than a showcase of spring 2010 looks from San Francisco designers? We have just that from local fashion and beauty photographer Liz Caruana, who produced this shoot featuring choice pieces from the spring collections of Christopher Collins, Dylan Perrigo, odileodette and Joy Vintage.

“I’ve been going to San Francisco independent events for a long time trying to suss out who is trying to do good work in the San Francisco fashion industry, and I really found pieces and designers that are accessible to everyone,” Caruana tells us.

Set in Golden Gate Park (while a wedding was in full swing just a few feet away), the shoot features an all-local cast and crew, including styling by Mary Dyann Kees and hair and makeup by Tacha Scott. On model Phebe Standley, the looks you see are Caruana’s own interpretation of spring trends spotted on the runways last fall, among them nude and beige hues, big prints and gold accents.

“I think it’s really important to support the local industry, it’s not going to go anywhere unless you’re supporting them,” says Caruana.

We concur. Now feast your eyes on what’s ahead for spring.
