Flake Factor: Fashion Network’s Snow Show

On Saturday, we saw spied quite a rare San Francisco sight: snow. As we watched models donning looks from local designers such as Christopher Collins, Verrieres & Sako, Joseph Domingo, Bacca Da Silva, Dcepcion and Colleen Quen saunter down the center of newly-opened Pigment Cosmetics, white flakes flurried around the party’s entryway. And even though we knew they weren’t real, we marveled all the same. How often do you get to see snow on Market Street, even if it is fake?

The fun of flakes was hardly the only special effect at the inaugural event of the San Francisco Bay Area Fashion Network, founded by designer Joseph Domingo. Almost every guest at the event wore head-to-toe white and every look sent down the center aisle by the participating designers embraced the evening’s chosen hue. There were also cute-as-can-be mini cupcakes iced in white waiting around every turn in the predominately white-washed space.

After the show, which ended with each designer taking a turn before the crowd with models in signature looks, we were happy to find many of the designers chatting with guests and generally making merry (more than a few air kisses were blown and glasses of Chardonnay raised high) as the party continued into the night.
