Regina from Handful of Salt recommended we connect with a “Project Runway” designer, that her work was incredible, and that she lived in the Mission, breathed black, and hand-stitched her clothes…
The rest is history, and the narrative takes a striking turn with a fashion show introducing this sexy new line of leather jackets and clutches. It’s a New Black exclusive, and yes, she was a Season 10 finalist on Project Runway….
For those seeking higher ground for women’s fashion in San Francisco, for those that take their uniforms in the social sphere seriously, come shop, wear, and play.
