At 7 p.m. tonight (December 7) at the Bently Reserve, the local non-profit Arts of Fashion Foundation is hosting its 9th Annual international student fashion show dubbed San Francisco in Fashion Mode.
If you have $150 to spare for reserved seating or $75 for fulltime students or those without reserved seating (proceeds will go to the non-profit), you’ll be able take in the designs of 55 student designers from across the globe and rub shoulders with industry types such as designer Matthew Ames, and other designers who have worked under the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Martin Margiela, Hermes, YSL, and Lanvin.
The runway show finale, which carries the theme “Uniquely Untrendy,” follows a five-day symposium comprised of panel discussions, lectures, and MasterClass workshops with the aforementioned designers.
After being judged for their work shown on the runway, a few lucky winners will receive scholarships to the MasterClass summer program at the Louvre in Paris and internships with S.F.-based Nice Collective, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, couturier Anne Valerie Hash, and Jerome Dreyfuss.
