Charity Fashion Show SF

Last Saturday, we were invited to attend the Charity Fashion Show here in San Francisco! Recognized as the largest fashion show on the West Coast, CFS is committed to promoting ethnic diversity through fashion, expression, education, and creativity. This year's CFS beneficiary was The Princess Project, an organization which provides prom dresses to high school girls in need. Taking the runway by storm were collections from designers like Tracy Reese, Antik Batik, and Cut25 by Yigal Azrouel. Up and coming collections by local designers such as Frock Los Angeles were also featured.

We couldn't imagine a better way to spend our evening at CFS than with our local community members and bloggers! Thanks to Amy, known as widelyflung on Polyvore, Anh of 9to5chic, and Saimah of Street Number Eight for coming along with us and making it a great night!

Here are a few pictures from the CFS pre-show action backstage, the runway, and hanging around the event!

The fabric of public society lies in the manners of the individuals that make up that society. To hold this fabric together, you have to have those manners. If you don’t have them, then public society will kick you out.

Those clothes and dresses are very compelling. I like the pink dress. It looks fabulous. By the way, you've made a good recap.
