Behind the Seams: The San Francisco Junior League Fashion Show Luncheon

How does Fab spend a Spring Saturday? By attending fashion shows whenever and wherever I can. When I'm not in New York or LA for my runway fix, I look to my local (beautiful) city of San Francisco for fashion fare. True, there is no groundbreaking trends and top models on the runways, but there are events that benefit good causes and healthy models who actually look like they're having fun. Such was the scene at the Junior League of San Francisco fashion show luncheon. PartySugar and I gobbled down creative salad fixings while we looked on to a high-energy Macy's sponsored runway show.

To read more about my Fab Saturday and to see more fun runway pics,

The theme was American Beauty and there were various segments broken down by trend. There was even a mens and kiddie segment. One of the highlights was actually the preteen show where I felt like a junior higher again, though back then I didn't get to wear Marc by Marc Jacobs. The models were a mix of women who are involved with the fund-raising organization and real models, the husbands of Junior Leaguers and their kids. It was a family affair.

It was also a very well rounded fashion show in that there were looks for women of all ages and shapes — another thing we don't get to see much of on high-fashion runways. Some of my favorite looks were by DKNY, Kensie, and Chaiken (the guest designer who took her walk on the runway despite being in a foot cast), and specifically an L-Space raspberry bikini and a BCBG ivory Grecian gown. The event itself was well produced and the stage, complete with theme-changing giant hanging balls, was wonderful.

Proceeds from the fashion show — including some fabulous auctioned European vacations — all go to JLSF-supported community programs. You know I love me some fashion for a cause!

When I think Junior League, I think people with their noses high in the air holding teacups.

No thanks...

Looks fun, but tweens wearing heels? No. Let's make the kids wear sneakers until they know what a matrix (in math) is.

UGH. The tweens/teens look ridiculous.

I like seeing the clothes on normal sized people. The women are still beautiful, but they're sizes that you or I might be. And I love that they're smiling instead of dropping too much attitude.

What a fun show! I really enjoy the lighter side of fashion... Not everyone always needs high fashion all the time. And the kiddies are adorable. I wish I had know how to dress well at a young age!

I'm surprised a bright yellow dress looks so good with red shoes.
