Early evening yesterday was the wonderful designer (and the sweetest girl ever) Alyssa Nicole‘s Fall fashion preview at Silverman Gallery hosted by DNA (Designers+Artists). Dominated by nude and brown hues in silky, sheer fabrics, this delicate, ethereal collection was a breath of fresh air in a market dominated by the heaviness of the hippie aesthetic and leatherdaddy chic. I arrived late (as usual) but thanks to the fashion show code of ¬†“always start at least 30-min after the scheduled time”, I actually got to see the show in it’s entire greatness. The refreshing live music was called to a pause and two by two, the models sauntered by the hungry audience. Sophisticated and pretty were Alyssa’s dresses and also the desires of those who were fortunate enough to have been on the invitation-only list.¬†Speaking of the guest list, the attendees also left little to be desired. From Alyssa’s intern, Ken Chen to some of the more repeat fashion event offenders (in a good way), this event showcased a very favorable cross-section of San Francisco’s stylistic abilities.

I know everyone’s been posting their outfits and pics today from the IRL Nasty Gal/Lookbook.nu party hosted by DNA (Designers+Artists) at Space Gallery but I forgot to take any pics of my own outfit (which was AWESOME, if I may say so myself), so the delay was necessary. First pic is of me and my girl Alyssa by Carolina Ramirez, the coolest photographer chick at the party (waaaaaaay cooler than me) and the rest of them are style snaps I stole on the drunk of the moment.

Me: Bolero jacket, vintage // Shirt, from Shotwell // Skirt, Picky Studio // Shoes, Jeffrey Campbell

(Last three pics from this dope bar in FiDi called Rickhouse).
