One of the best things about San Francisco is all the interesting events and activities that happen every day throughout the city. This week’s fashion events range from a Commonwealth Club talk with famous Project Runway star Tim Gunn to the Japanese Street Style fashion that can be seen during the Cherry Blossom Festival. Whatever you decide to do this week, enjoy it in style!
High Style: The Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection, March 14 – July 19, 2015, Legion of Honor, 100 34th Avenue, SF, Ticket cost ranges from free to $36
Gowns, accessories, and other looks by the most influential designers of the last one hundred years—including Chanel, Givenchy, Dior, and Charles James—trace the evolution of fashion in the 20th century. See this exclusive West Coast presentation at the Legion of Honor of Brooklyn Museum’s distinguished costume collection.
The Commonwealth Club is hosting Tim Gunn for a candid, inspirational and witty discussion of life’s lessons – from the runway to the classroom to the therapist’s office and beyond. The event is sold out, but maybe try your luck in snagging someone’s ticket who cannot attend via Craigslist or through your social network.

This conversation offers the chance to think about the myriad ways that the ‘gothic’ label has been historically mobilized for marking and managing the appearance of the defiantly different or irrational, and how this history has come to influence a wide array of contemporary artists, musicians and designers
