On Saturday night, a throng of freelance photographers, bloggers, and fashion fans descended on Mighty in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood for the West Coast debut collection from Project Runway Alum Christopher Straub, which was the headlining event of Visage by LK Productions.
A strong first-effort by Straub, the collection featured an array of dresses that ran the gamut between casual mini-length and full length red carpet worthy, however the designer was at his strongest on the short, fun, cocktail looks. Our favorite, an asymmetrical blue dress with whimsical feather-tier texturing. (pictured below).
Supporting Straub in his debut were a bevy of local designers that showed everything from embellished bikinis to street inspired menswear. And although not every collection was one that could be categorized wearable, the show portrayed the growing effort among San Francisco designers to produce professionally finished pieces that are both creative and fashion forward.
With very few glitches in production, the evening was a successful one and served as a good indication of the promising future of the San Francisco Fashion industry.
