Saturday: Marciano Fashion Show at Ana Mandara
It's 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and there's a line outside the doors of swank Vietnamese restaurant Ana Mandara. Tonight's show, the fall collection of Marciano, GUESS Clothing's runway-inspired high end fashion brand, was put together by upscale event producer Donovan. Oh, and who is here? Well, let's just say if Gossip Girl's Blair lived in San Francisco, these people would be her clique. Whoever says San Francisco isn't fashionable hasn't been hanging out with the right crowd.
On the runway, there was a little splash of grape and raspberry, with a whole lot of black. Dresses hiked above the knees still give a little mystery to the imagination, but the fits were not particularly alluring. The collection was composed of nothing terribly striking; mostly your everyday wear with a hint of lingerie over the top of patterned designs for a night on the prowl. Meow.
