San Francisco Fashion Week
With the Bay Area being the epicenter of technology and all, it's little surprise that our petite local fashion world often gloms onto big tech in Silicon Valley for headline-grabbing collaborations. This year's San Francisco Fashion Week, sponsored by San Francisco Fashion and Merchants Alliance, Inc., is billing itself as the SXSW of Fashion, with the hashtag #DisruptFashion.
The first in what will be nearly 10 days of local fashion events from two different efforts to revive fashion week in San Francisco took place over the weekend, when local style fans descended upon the Vitaminwater Social Club for Fashion Week – The Reinvention. This week, a fashion-related event takes place every night as Chic Fashion Week gets underway. Below, we lay out what’s ahead.
We know that finance is struggling, but how do creative industries survive in this economy? Glamwatch's own Lorraine Sanders will be moderating a forum discussing the Economics of Art. As the epicenter of independent and local talent, is San Francisco suffering compared to the rest of the nation? Talk it out with designers, bloggers, retailers and other entrepreneurs in the local fashion scene, who will share their relationship and thoughts on the topic. The proceeds from this event will benefit the San Francisco Fashion and Merchant's Alliance's efforts to revive San Francisco Fashion Week.
