    Sure, San Francisco is far from being a fashion capital. But if you need proof that the city houses some major budding talent in the sartorial field, all you need to do is cast your eyes toward the Academy of Art University, and its fashion program headed up by designer Simon Ungless, who started the Alexander McQueen label in partnership with the late designer, in the early '90s.

The home is big, beautiful, and read
