Extra! Extra! Melissa Fleis on the front page of The San Francisco Chronicle! The Entangle Skirt from Fall 2014's Defiant Collection was highlighted in a gorgeous photo shoot forecasting the Fall trends. Right there on the front page - pretty great.
Light and Shadow is a major theme for Fall fashion and this story is played out against the backdrop of historic Fort Point beneath the Golden Gate bridge. Fort Point was famously featured in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and 58 years later is still a brilliant location.
Many thanks to The San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate!
Save the date - September 25, 2014 - for a very special occasion. The Taste of Stars is a gala fashion event taking place during SF Fashion Week to benefit UCSF's Benioff Children's Cancer and Blood Disease Program.

It will be an inspiring evening. For more information please check out http://www.thetasteofstars.com/

On Monday, June 30th Dirty Habit restaurant in San Francisco hosted an event in honor their collaboration with Melissa Fleis. Guests had the opportunity to learn about Melissa Fleis' inspiration for the Dirty Habit uniform collection, get pampered with a pop-up beauty bar courtesy of San Francisco based cosmetics company theBalm, and enjoy drinks and bites on the outdoor patio. Dirty Habit's Chef David Bazirgan and Bar Manager Brian Means prepared a delicious assortment of refreshments.
If you haven't had the chance to experience it for yourself, you will definitely want to stop by after this sneak peek! Melissa discusses her inspiration behind her designs for the staff at Dirty Habit. Enjoy! xx
