The annual Academy of Art University Spring Show is consistently one of the most well produced fashion shows in SF. This year, the show featured 16 mini-collections from 23 talented students, graduating with BFA Fashion Design degrees in Accessory, Knitwear, Men's Wear, Technical, Textile and Women's Wear.
The students unveiled their work last week at the AAU Tent in SoMa. We went, we saw, and we picked favorites. Above are, in our opinion, the best technically designed, and overall most complete looks from the show.
Shafiyi Wali's crisp fit and casual, yet polished, spring suiting caught my attention while shopping in Union Square last week. I was surprised to find out he's so stylish at just 23-years-old, but wasn't surprised to find out he's a personal shopper at Sak's Men's Store. While it may be his job to look this good, something tells me he's a natural. What I love most about his outfit is that it's so well thought out, and yet seemingly simple.
What he's wearing: Check shirt from Club Monaco, gray wool vintage blazer, vintage pocket square, H&M black pants, Saks Fifth Avenue tan leather oxfords.

From Proenza Schouler’s buckled purses to Marc Jacobs’ straw slings, the Spring/Summer 2011 runway was whipped up in a flurry of long shoulder straps. Not all trends make it from the runways of NYC to the streets of SF, but we love these crossbody bags because they're ultra practical. And in a city full of street food, iPhones, bikers and travel junkies, it's always great when practical meets stylish. So stop worrying about your purse and let your hands go this spring with a cute, colorful crossbody bag.
Whether you like to carry your life with you, or need a smaller purse that lets you dance the night away, we have 7 great crossbody bags to splurge on this spring.
For all you last minute shoppers out there, we've got your back. We pulled together a bundle of hip mom-essentials from seven fantastic local boutiques, to mix, match and make her smile.
