San Francisco’s techies and tastemakers recently came out to attend the opening celebration of Canopy, the high-design co-working space on Fillmore Street designed by Yves Behar and developer Amir Mortazavi.
As the first major gala of the year (it was at full capacity with 3,400 guests!), the San Francisco Ballet’s Infinite Romance was a night not just of beautiful movement on stage, but of some striking fashion off stage. Here are some moments we particularly enjoyed from the gala.
I recently attended the launch of InsideHook.com’s new San Francisco edition at a private event hosted by one of my favorite authors, Tim Ferriss (who is also a well-known entrepreneur and investor.)
The Mid Winter Gala for 2013 honored the exhibit, “Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis” with a chic winter wonderland that raised over $400k. Marissa Mayer, Jonathan Ive, Alison Pincus, Vanessa Getty, Dick Costolo, Stephan Jenkins, Connie Nielsen, Lori Levine, Evgenia Peretz, Jeremy Stoppelman, Trevor Traina, Allison Speer and Kathryn Lasater were among the 380 who attended.
Now in its 8th year, the 2012 Mid-Winter Gala had the support of Chanel as Marquee Sponsor for the first time ever, and one could sense the elegant Chanel touch throughout the evening.
America’s oldest professional ballet company, the San Francisco Ballet can claim an illustrious history of “firsts,” including presenting the first American productions of Swan Lake and Nutcracker. The 2012 season upholds the tradition!
