Last weekend, Macy's Glamorama stormed the Orpheum Theatre (and later the Asian Art Museum), bringing together SF's fashion elite, philanthropists, and teenyboppers swooning over headliner, Robin Thicke.
We went, we saw and we photographed these amazing looks from Macy's Fashion Incubator designers, a local b-boy, and more.
