Day 16 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge is about my Top 3 SF Fashion Designers.

This one is tricky because even though I support a lot of local designers by going to their fashion shows and covering the on this website, I still own few garments designed by SF designers.

The team met while working under Lily Samii.  Not only are their pieces gorgeous, and perfect for every type of event –  I also really like their label even more because I know the designers behind the label and really like them. Here’s an interview I did with them earlier this year.

Bacca Da Silva is another local favorite for womenswear – he also does menswear, but I can’t remember if I’ve ever seen it or not. His designs are very cutting edge for SF, he incorporates great prints (in large-scale) and right colors. I think everything Bacca made for his Spring 2012 collection I would love to wear.

I was introduced to Alyssa Nicole and her line during San Francisco Fashion Week 2010 (here’s a link to my review of her collection shown at Fashion Week). She really knows how to make flattering, reasonably priced pieces.
