Sure, there's a whole lot of attention being shed on New York's fashion scene this week, but the West (best?) Coast definitely has design talent nestled in these sunny parts, too. Although it took a little digging (hey, the style set in S.F. isn't always apparent!), we've rounded up the top 12 designers who call the Bay Area home.
From the Academy of Art's brightest alums who haven't hopped on over to the Big Apple, to print-making masters and dreamy bridal designers, this perfect dozen definitely has what it takes to put — and keep — San Francisco on the fashion map. Trust us, shopping local has never been easier.
