San Francisco Fashion: Stylematic Runway Show

I’ve mentioned the fun new San Francisco-based fashion app Stylematic in the past {Stylematic: San Francisco Fashion App & Join Me – Stylematic Launch Party} and today I want to give you a peek into their grand launch party last week.

The Stylematic Launch Party was everything that I love about San Francisco – People with different backgrounds coming together to support a fledgling start-up with a great party and – Of course – Some killer fashion.

It was a great evening filled with inspiration and serious fashion eye-candy.

The keynote speakers were exceptional – Sinead Norenius of iFabbo represented a fashion & beauty dynasty created online and made popular through social media and blogging, and Hap Klopp, founder of The North Face, a fashion-meets-tech staple for anyone who loves the Great Outdoors. Both speakers inspired and reminded me of just how many amazing companies and visionaries have come out of the Bay Area.

One of the evening’s highlights was the Betabrand presentation. Not only did we get to hear from the entertaining & self-deprecating founder of the Betabrand Empire, the audience also got a chance to cheer as most of his team hit the runway in bold, eye-catching pieces with gold and silver embellishments.

I’m also thrilled to say that proceeds from the event went to benefit One World Children’s Fun – An amazing organization that supports local grassroots groups on the ground in impoverished areas around the world.

Stylematic: San Francisco Fashion App

I love fashion but it’s hard to ignore how rarefied the industry has become – It seems like everything from the parties to the runway shows to the magazine features are for the fashion industry elite alone.

Stylematic

I was recently introduced to a company called Stylematic, based here in the Bay Area, that would love nothing more than to democratize fashion. This community-oriented fashion app provides a fun environment to express yourself, meet & get to know other fashion lovers, and help with styling questions. And not only do you get access to great brands & companies through the app, they’re also offering up & coming designers a great platform to share their new collections & pieces with a broader audience.

This app – Created for both men and women – Is celebrating diversity in fashion. It doesn’t matter what designer you’re wearing, what matters is you – How you express yourself, how you show yourself to the world, who you are.

San Francisco is one of the Fashion/Tech centers in the world and I love seeing a boundary-pushing company like Stylematic coming out of the Bay Area – Not only are they offering you a pocket stylist to meet all your styling needs, but they’re also giving you a chance to connect with other fashion lovers over your shared passions.

Stylematic-Launch-Party-Invittion

I’d like to invite you all to join me to celebrate the launch of this amazing app here in San Francisco with a dance party, live runway show, fun giveaways & killer goodie bags on Tuesday, February 18th.

You can checkout the Facebook invitation or you can RSVP here – If you download the app you can get a $5 ticket at the door! A percentage of the proceeds from this fabulous event are going to Children’s Fund and I have good news for students – Show your school ID and you’ll get into the party for free!

Also, I’ll be giving away a VIP ticket to join me at the event so stay tuned!
