While designers were showing their spring 2014 collections during New York Fashion Week, the Bay Area was experiencing a fashion week of its own. San Francisco’s red carpet style fashion week kicked off on September 3, 2013 with the Symphony opening gala, continued on Wednesday with a Red Carpet Bay Area invitation-only brunch and viewing of the Vera Wang spring 2014 collection at her flagship store on Union Square, followed by the San Francisco Opera Ball on Friday, and finally ended with a let-your-hair-down Party for the Parks in Golden Gate Park on Saturday.
If you are not from here, forget what you thought about San Francisco style. It is rarely as comfort-loving as Berkeley. This is gown town. Keep checking in, Red Carpet Bay Area is covering all of the above mentioned red carpet fashion week events.
