A Silicon Valley Fashion Week? It Exists

    Silicon Valley Fashion Week

    The public is asked to weigh in on whether another day should be added to a new event called Silicon Valley Fashion Week?

    That wasn't a typographical error; the event name contains a question mark because, as creator Chris Lindland told KQED Arts, “It's coming up with a big idea that’s like, ‘Oh God, that would be either brilliant or a gigantic failure,’ and then going for it.”

    Companies like Lindland's Betabrand, Timbuk2, and Misfit Wearables created original pieces for the technology inspired fashion show. Some can even be classified as "wearable tech" because they incorporate electronics that light up or make music.

    The event is scheduled to continue through May 14 at The Chapel in San Francisco. Tickets are sold out, but a form on the event site asks potential attendees to register their name and email and they'll be notified if another day is added.
