With obvious talent beyond her 19 years, local teen designer Alyssa Casares is also arguably one of the best rising fashion talents in San Francisco. Case in point: Her new fall 2011 Alyssa Nicole collection, which is now on sale over at her e-shop. One of the best offerings from the youngster yet, our favorite pieces in the new "gypsy, bohemian-inspired" line include a graphic black and red dress with cut-out shoulders (in both the mini- and maxi-versions) and a black floor-sweeper with billowy sleeves with another intriguing cut-out back.
