Recently at the legendary Fairmont Hotel in the chic Nob Hill area of San Francisco, Replete Skincare presented an Haute Couture fashion event featuring two top couture brands in the world, MIMI Tran and on aura tout vu. This was the first time the “on aura tout vu” fashion house showed their collection on American soil.

Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov of the Haute Couture accessory label, on aura tout vu (which means “We will have seen everything” or “That takes the cake” in French), presented a number of looks on the runway.

Entertaining and titillating the fashionista crowd was pop singer French, who walked the catwalk with a bevy of lovely models clad in shoes by participating LA-based luxury footwear designer, Konstantina Tzovolou.

Replete Skincare donated 10% of all ticket sales for the 2014 Haute Couture Fashion event to Reason to Party, an all-volunteer San Francisco 501(3)c non-profit that raises funds in fun ways for extraordinary local nonprofits. The funds are earmarked for Samasource, a nonprofit that helps connect poor women and youth to training and employment in the digital economy.

Food and wine were not the only thing on tap at Sunset Magazine’s September “Savor the Central Coast” event in San Luis Obispo county near Paso Robles. “Tasting” styles were also on view, as attendees combined wearable fashion with fabrics that were light, flexible, and eye catching.

Even in the countryside, it pays to look good, especially while having fun!

Festival Styles at the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival

What is the perfect style for tasting wine and chocolate at an outdoors event on the West Coast?

Apparently a subtle nod to the summer music concert tours is the appropriate outfit, as we discovered at the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival, where festival style was the mode of the day.
