    An ongoing tradition since 1981, Fleet Week is a celebration of the men and women of the armed forces. This year not only do we have the pleasure of viewing the Blue Angels, but we also have the opportunity to check out San Francisco Bay’s best emerging fashion and accessory designers at Style Elevation's Weekend Pop Up Shops on Grant Avenue in North Beach.

    Multi-talented entrepreneur Karri Ann Frerichs is the woman behind Style Elevation, an online retail shop launching this holiday season. In conjunction with the launch, Ms. Frerichs is hosting a series of retail happenings through October highlighting the latest fashion trends from around the bay area. These events cater to the business growth of new and upcoming designers as well as the local business communities, using the "pop-up shop"scenario where empty spaces are utilized for retail extravaganzas.

    Twenty designers will present and sell their collections directly to the public at 1418 Grant Ave. on Saturday October 10, 10am - 7pm, and Sunday October 11, 11am - 5pm. For the art lovers among us, there will also be a fashion photographers showcase at Live Worms Gallery, 1345 Grant Ave., on Friday, October 9 from 5pm - 9pm.

    See all the designers who have registered here.
