“The transformation of student to designer each year is a wondrous one to behold. At CCA we celebrate the individual artist. There will be times in their futures when they must design according to other people’s directives, but the senior year is a time for introspection and aesthetic exploration. I am so incredibly proud of the work created by these young rising stars.”-CCA Fashion Design Program chair Amy Williams.

I was able to sneak out some time this past weekend to rush over to the CAPSULE Design Festival, a free event celebrating bay area fashion and accessory designers. The event was held in the streets of Hayes Valley and must I say the weather couldn’t have been better. I snapped a few photos of some of the creative accessories and home goods I fell in love with.

Ever wonder where you can shop up to 80% off designer clothing, sip cotton candy cocktails, and watch a sunset in one of the hottest cars on the market all at once? I know! I attended the Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash sponsored by Chevrolet this past week and divulged in all that and more over the course of one night. The event showcased a variety of online boutique shops like Belina and 365 Hangars as well as up and coming designers like Omnatura. All independent designers and sample shops lined the large Herbst Pavillion hangar at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco.
The Shopping Addict
Here’s how the night began…
I was greeted by the lovely ladies at Sassy City Chick’s and Chevrolet around 5pm. My good friend’s Angelica Benjamin of Gelicarae.com and Jennifer Benson part owner of DigitallyChic.com and I entered the floor with goody bags in hand and money in our wallets. Oh yes, I was so000 ready to buy. First stop of the night was at Urban Expressions, an online handbag boutique. I bought the lovely mustard yellow purse below. Wear it as a clutch or hook on its strap to make it a wonderful shoulder bag. This leather bag cost me a minimal $48. Not bad at all.

After WWDMagic ended last month I rushed the day after to attended the Project San Francisco fashion event I heard so much about. The event took place at The Summit at Seven Eighty and showcased 5 independent fashion designers and 3 up and coming jewelry designers from the bay area. I absolutely loved this event! I was able to snag a front row seat on the runway where I shot some amazing footage of the show (see videos below).

Revelation By M.E.- “M.E.” is Myrda Monasterial and Eloisa Serrano, both alums of Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising – they are the co-designers of Revelation by M.E.
It is inevitable that their passion for style brought them together while designing for a San Francisco label. They collaborated on an innovative design concept where one dress could be worn a few different ways, simply by flipping it, reversing it or removing a piece of it, hence the birth of Revelation by M.E. collection in the Spring of 2009. They believe that style and sophisticated design should be easy and comfortable to wear.
NNEKA- Penelope Adibe was born and raised in North London, England of immigrant parents. After high school, Penelope had a stall in London’s Camden market, studied at St Martins School of Art and worked as an intern for Vivienne Westwood. In the 1990’s Penelope moved to the United States and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion at the San Francisco Academy of Arts. After working for Chuck D of Public Enemy and his clothing line Rapp Style International, Penelope started her own label: Nneka – a name given by her Nigerian grandmother.
