The Spring of San Francisco was greeted last week by the Award-Winning Fashion Community Week, a platform for Local and International Emerging Fashion Designers and Beauty talents in San Francisco. The 4-day event was filled with fashion conference, brand presentation, runway show, media event, networking, showroom and an opportunity to Shop the Runway collection.
The Opening evening kicked off at the exclusive ‘members only’ club: The Modernist (voted one of the Hottest members club on Maxim).
