Back from the Launch Sample Sale

Good things were in store for those who braved the rain this Sunday and headed over to the Launch sample sale held at the W Hotel. At the sample sale was an array of up and coming designers selling products ranging from one of a kind dresses to graphic t-shirts, jewelry to fur capes. With my handy photographer May Tilden on hand we made the rounds and met a lot of interesting people and amazing new talent. The clothes were great, the ambience casual and fun, and overall a very successful event. Look out for interviews and photo ops with some of our favorite designers who will be featured on the blog in the near future!



BARE staff members Tricia and Tanya were also at the sample sale and met up with Effie's Heart designer, Kimo (below in the pink tank), and jewelry designer Meghan Patrice Riley, who is a Berkeley grad in Economics (cool to see Cal grads going into fashion!).

Gorgeous detailing.
