TWICE AS NICE IS MORE FUN!
June 7 in SF, miss velvet cream [with the fantastical ESTAR] will be vending at two seperate trunk shows, one at Foreign Cinema in the Mission, for Brunch [11am-4pm], and then at 111 Minna in Downtown SF, for Cocktails [8pm-2am].
Just enough time for Mission Burritos in between the two!
Please stop by to check out NEW GEAR! from both myself + ESTAR, as well as a collection of other fantastically talented designers from the Bay Areas.
WHY? Well, check this out:
Quote from Mr. Konheim, CEO of brand "Nicole Miller", talking about the prices of clothing and "fast fashion" on the market today :
"As far as bottom costs go, we're there. I think we've exploited all the countries on earth for people who really want to work for nothing."
FAIR LABOR AND TRADE PRACTICES START WITH YOUR CHOICES!
Please put your money in your community of artists and designers and craftspeople. Don't buy into corporate exploitation and irresponsiblity to get a "cheap price".
SUPPORT LOCAL, HAND-MADE DESIGNERS + CRAFT TRADITIONS!
:miss velvet cream proudly delivers you avant-garde design and exceptional quality, made by my hands here in SF for your body, including ready-to-wear, salvage, denim remake and couture items for men + women:
