7 Spring Fashion Shows You Don't Want to Miss

NYC may have fashion week, but we in SF have fashion month. Each Spring, from mid-April to mid-May, a range of annual fashion shows present SF's best emerging talent. From $10,000 student collections, to recycled independent clothing, designers across the city have been sketching, patterning, draping, cutting, sewing, pressing, fitting and refitting like mad - and it all comes down to these seven shows: 

1. San Francisco State University's Runway 2011: EnchantmentThursday April 21, 7pm at the San Francisco Design Center (101 Henry Adams Street), $15-$25.

At last night’s Belle Epoque City College of San Francisco annual fashion show, hundreds of guests watched as an imaginative display of work from 29 fashion students paraded down a raised runway flanked by red-and-white-striped curtains befitting the evening’s retro circus theme.

The sheer variety of looks defined the show, whose segments ranged from a millinery-driven opener dubbed "Coco Before Chanel" to the finale, featuring garments done exclusively in black and white.
