San Francisco Street Style at West Coast Craft
Twice a year, West Coast makers and shakers gather at Fort Mason in the San Francisco marina to showcase their work and wears at West Coast Craft. But this ain't your grandma's craft fair! As a friend observed, it's Instagram IRL. Designers and makers take their curated online presence and bring it to life in a 10x10 booth. If you've ever wanted to meet the designers you've been coveting and get to know the person behind your clothes, jewelry, art, furniture... and put a face and personality to their name and creations, this is the place to do it.
With ocean front views and a whole warehouse worth of inspiration, it's hard to avoid the shopping bug, so prepare your wallet ahead of time! This is a market after all. People go to see and be seen. To try on that dress they spotted online in real life, to touch and feel the quality and craftsmanship. It's a people watching, shopping, instagramers dream!
We knew there would be plenty of top knotch street style flooding Fort Mason for the 2-day affair, and captured our favorite ensembles for some serious blustery summer style inspo (SF summer's come with fog or a windchill). We're talking denim jackets and jumpsuits aplenty! Check out the ladies (and gent!) that caught our eye at the chicest craft fair west of the Mississippi!
We weren't the only Sebastopolian's to grace the affair! Our favorite local artist Grace Levine took a day trip south to snag some stylish loot. And just like her gallery/ shop hybrid—Kitty Hawk—her ensemble was impeccably curated.
Victorian-esque blouse + modern bucket bag = our new go to bohemian luxe look!
Blend earth tones and vintage inspired textures for a fresh, laid back Americana vibe.
Nikki—the girlboss at First Rite— stole our hearts blending indie designers and blue tones. And check out her show stopping Young In The Mountains Lapis inlay cuff! (Our new favorite gem designer!)
Maria Stanley killin it in white ruffles! When in doubt, neutrals create a crisp, clean ensemble.
Photographer Aysia Stieb keepin' it casual in a black jumpsuit and light denim jacket (cause even when it's sunny in SF—you'll likely need a jacket).
And last, but certainly not least—our favorite salespup Joey slinging goods for West Perro.
