Get To Know Rising Design Star Chadwick Bell At Wilkes Bashford Today!

One upside to our sometimes-warm, oftentimes-foggy summer days? The fact that dreamy fall layers are always appropriate. Which is why you'll find us at Wilkes Bashford today, trying to squeeze in a little one-on-one time with young talent Chadwick Bell.
Sure, Donna Karan's S.F. cameo may be garnering much buzz about town, but we're all for supporting stars-on-the-rise, too. The SoCal-born Bell will be on hand to present his fall '12 collection — think Anjelica Huston-inspired jumpsuits and tuxedo jackets — and answer guests' questions. (One we have: "Um, may we borrow Elizabeth Banks' Vanity Fair Oscar party dress?!")
Plus, if you think Bell's silver-fox coat and leather separates are hard to resist, wait 'til you see the designer himself. Hubba hubba!
When: Friday, May 18, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: Wilkes Bashford, 375 Sutter Street (between Grant Avenue and Stockton Street); 415-986-4380.
