San Francisco, CA - Most people say that there’s no real fashion in San Francisco. However, I disagree. I have been participating in some “Prepare for the Playa” popup stores where the top festival fashion brands Sell to the Burningman crowd.
What I have come to notice is that these brands are very high quality and their clothing is made to withstand the 5 days of intense fun on the Playa in a big way, making them very high quality. Festival goers have no patience when paying top dollar for a unique brand for it to fall apart.
I noticed that the beautiful coats, the apocalyptic A-line outfits, the sparkling flip sequence are all made to not leave a trace after the Burningman principals.
Many of the costumes are so well thought out and unique that one could consider them couture in the sense that they are custom made designs and one of a kind pieces.
There seems to be two styles:
Hippy fringe items after Mad Max meets Peru, and techno light up wear that meets the dreams of anyone right out of BladeRunner.
there are also the Steampunkers and the Cirque de Soleil fire twirling entertainers, but they will be outnumbered this year with the iRobot concept that is the theme.
its why our chokers and bracelets are selling so well. They fit into every design style. They fit women and men and they light up the night.
this August 11th marks the final big sale we are participating in with Beyond the Fence, a curated popup store lead by Tamo for the last 12 years. If you are in San Francisco don’t miss it. You will find the coolest underground high quality brands.
