Happy Anniversary to S.F. Street Fashion

Last year, I asked an editor if I could write a street fashion post about Pride. I didn't have a decent camera and I was painfully shy when it came to approaching strangers, neither of which lent themselves to being a street photographer. But I did -- and do -- love seeing people co-opt clothing and infuse it with their own personal style.

Although I've upgraded my camera, I'm still the same awkward person that I was last June, who gets a surge of anxious adrenaline when she goes out to take pictures. It's hard for me to believe this blog is now a year old -- that the extremely supportive editorial staff at SF Weekly has let me keep writing it, that S.F.'s lovely fashionistas keep letting me photograph them on the street, and that you keep reading it. I'll try not to get misty-eyed and ramble on forever; after all, we have a year's worth of fashion to look at! But I will wholeheartedly say this: Thank you.

Without further ado, here is a roundup of my favorite photos and fashion trends from the year:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
