From miners wearing Levi's jeans during the Gold Rush of 1849 to the flower children of Haight Ashbury in the '60s to being the birth place of Derek Lam and Alexander Wang, San Francisco has had a historic influence on fashion that's often overlooked. But a party at the Old Mint on 88 Fifth Street in San Francisco tonight from 6 to 10pm aims to honor SF's style legacy with a great big party.
Tickets are $30 and benefit FlipSide and the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society (if you're a member, tickets are only $15). There will, be drinks, dancing, and a style exhibit showcasing 120 years of SF fashion including photographs, posters, ad art and clothing on loan from local institutions including A.C.T's costume department and Levi's.
