T-Shirt & Hoodie Fashion Show This Friday August 15th

This looks like it will be a fun event, and combine the free vodka, an Americas Top Chef contestant cooking some treats, charity support $10 is not bad for a cool event on a Friday night.

440 Broadway St, San Francisco, CA 94133
Doors: 9pm Runway: 11pm

944 Magazine presents a bold new fashion show & runway concept from “LADY NOIR,” The event will begin at 9:00pm at one of the cities hottest new venues: Apartment 24 (440 Broadway – North Beach) and will feature a complimentary vodka tasting sponsored by award winning Snow Queen Vodka (Double Gold Winner – Best of Vodka Category – SF World Spirits Competition 2008), along with special appetizers created by Ryan Scott, executive chef of Mission Beach Café and contestant on “Top Chef.”

The event promises to attract some of the sexiest fashion forward people the city has to offer and will be photographed and filmed by 944 magazine, and co-hosted by SF Station and Bad Kitty productions (the team behind the 2007 trunk show series at 111 Minna Gallery). Music will be provided by DJ David Carvalho, whom has graced the turn tables at many of the top venues in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas & Miami.

Chillin Productions Redux

Chillin Productions was over a week ago and I owe it a write up. By far one of the best fashion/design/art event i’ve been too. The art was so high quality and diverse, the clothing and t-shirts were awesome and unique, and other features like live screen printing and the 10 DJ’s made it an afternoon/evening to remember. I met Irene Hernandez-Feiks who founded Chillin’ Productions at a party the week before and after that experience had to check it out because she is an amazing character (she was even DJ’ing some of the event).

I met lots of great people there and have to tell you that is becoming one of the funnest parts of writing this blog, going out and meeting the people behind the designs. There is so much going on in the indie fashion and t-shirt world things are very exciting.

Wear Me Naked

I loved Wear Me Naked, these are all hand painted and sewn shirts, with awesome designs and quirky condom pockets (they also do underwear with the condom pocket, sweet)

Indie Industries

I was also a big fan of what Indie Industries was doing. These guys are an artists collaborative which sell all kinds of indie merchandise with real stores. The stores in fact are probably best characterized as cool and authentic, kind of what Urban Outfitters wishes it could be. (I saw a much wider selection of stuff in person than I do on their site) so it might be worth checking out the store. They are at 2003 Milvia St. @ University Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704 open Tues – Sat 12-7, Sun 12-5, closed Mon. Don’t believe me, check out their 5 star reviews on Yelp :-)
