Friday night's show featured a montage of some of my favorite contemporary designers; Clu, Generra, Black Halo and 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent, as shown by local online retailer, Fashionistette.com. Old turned new with a beautiful collection by local designer Joy Fan of Vintage Joy. (Think black lace layered over purple underthings with bright red lips and coiffed 'dos.) Work Clothes celebrated all things summer with an homage to the true California girl. Fedoras, mini dresses, and fun printed tees were the stars of their show.

Alyssa Nicole's pretty party dresses
Alexandria von Bromssen, Alyssa Nicole, Chan.nel Karama LTD, Kathryn McCarron, and Valpixel were the headliners for Saturday night's show. I was blown away by Chan.nel Karama's dominatrix vibed show with her structured jackets and modern black and white prints. Although extreme, there were actually a lot of very wearable pieces and there even was swimwear. Kathryn McCarron showed sexy knits with red peekaboo lace, and Alyssa Nicole's cocktail dress collection (created by 18 year-old Alyssa Casares) would satisfy any pop princess's dream.

Congratulations to the SFFAMA and all of the designers for the success of the show! Can't wait to see what's next!
