In London you can always find great knits, minimalist layering, menswear-inspired pieces, and fabulous avant-garde designs. Read on for some of my favorite street style stars from the fashionable circus known as London Fashion Week!

In 2013 I had the honor of attending four blogging conferences – IFBCON in February during New York Fashion Week, Lucky FABB in LA in April, iFabbo here in San Francisco early in October, and then finally Lucky FABB’s East Coast conference in late October.

Each of the conferences provided me with information, {everything from technology updates and improving writing skills to helpful new software & aps to check out} access to great speakers, {celebrities, designers, editors, writers, bloggers…}, endless inspiration, and my favorite part – Introduced me to amazing women with similar interests and passions.

San Francisco Fashion Week: Emerging Designers

Fashion is always about what’s new. What’s hot. What’s up-and-coming. What you’ll wear next season. And when you’re all about the future and what’s going to be the Next Big Thing, then you’ve got to take the time to pay homage to the new kids on the block.

I was blown away by the Emerging Designers showcase this past week. The large, industrial space of the Folsom Foundry was the perfect backdrop for these mens and womens wear designs.
