Get a taste of SF’s Creative Community with these five fab events!

Spring break is almost here and we have five fashion and art events to connect you with the local creative community and possibly get you into spending trouble. (Only in-between bronzing at Baker Beach and frolicking at Dolores Park – of course!) Mid-march means shedding winter coats for shorter hemlines, bright colored sunnies, strappy sandals and taking your new looks out on the town!

Where: The Meyerovich Gallery, 251 Post Street, Suite 400, San Francisco
