This Week in Fashion: Local Designer Camelia Skikos Fall/Winter 2011 Collection + Sunday Fashion Show
Camelia Skikos' latest collection, "Out of the Blue" showcases her signature cut-out overlays and geometric lines, but this time with sharp doses of blue, cream and black.
The SF-based designer studied fashion design in Europe before making her way to the Bay in 2003, to be the head designer at Levi's. Skikos' is now focused on her own line (which is 100% made in California), but also teaches fashion at the Academy of Art University.
The Junior League of San Francisco celebrates its centennial anniversary this year with their 85th Annual Fashion Show: A Fashionable Legacy. Both the luncheon and dinner shows, will be held this Friday at the Fairmont Hotel.
Each year the show features members of the JLSF, their hubbies and their children as models in the elaborate runway show. Model trainer, Charleston Pierce, is back on the scene this year, to help these charitable ladies get officially runway ready. (We're guessing the new models just happen to be catching up on America's Next Top Model, too.)
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.
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.
Split ends are so last year. Say hello to 2011 with a new look from SF's hip new salon, Jonvey.
Co-owners Cameron Hinke and Kao Vey Saephanh go head-to-head as the only stylists at this Financial District salon, so you know you're getting the best service with every cut. Collectively, they have 20 years of experience from top salons in NYC and SF, and top brands including Matrix and Sebastian.
