Photos: Haute Dog SF: Dozens of Dashing Dogs at the San Francisco Design Center

On February 3rd, San Francisco's design elite went to the dogs, packing the beautiful Galleria atrium of the San Francisco Design Center for the first annual Haute Dog SF.

Fashion Feud: Live Project Runway-Style Designer Duel at Rickshaw Stop

Designers stealing chiffon? Models pulling hair? Fashionistas being fashionistas? We all love a good cat fight, and the best fashion brawls happen right on the catwalk.

Tomorrow night the gloves are coming off at Rickshaw Stop, with the return of SF's Fashion Feud: Part 1, our very own Project Runway-style designer duel.

Designers Crystal Hermann and Mary Yanez will get one hour to cut, sew and "make it work" at the first of four 2011 Fashion Feud events. Then it's up to the models, Caitlyn MacClennan and Jennifer Lazorack, to strut their new designer duds in the walk-off.

What's in Helena de Natalio's Handbag?

With her Helena de Natalio line of handbags recently picked up by Saks Fifth Avenue— and featured in the retailer's spring advertising campaign—BayArea native and designer Helen Lubetkin, 29, is understandably optimistic about what lies ahead for her bohemian-cool line of leather carry-alls and clutches. We caught up with the Marin resident to chat about her latest collection, her stint in the Peace Corps and the contents of her handbag.

How is your forthcoming collection for late summer/early fall 2009 a departure from your previous collections?
