San Francisco shop girls will be busy this month as the city’s chicest suddenly realize in a panic they’ve not a thing to wear. The cause for concern? Two of the biggest fashion events we’ve seen in months will occur just weeks apart!
First, Alexander McQueen will show up at the Academy of Art University’s undergraduate fashion show, May 24th, where he will be honored for his achievements as one of the leading “Men of Fashion” (will he be on the same flight as Princess Di’s brother?). Then, on June 15th, Donna Karan will be in town as Nordstrom’s guest of honor at a huge fashion show at the de Young — a first for the museum. Proceeds from her show will benefit the “Step Up Women’s Network”.
