What better way to celebrate a truly successful Bike to Work Day in San Francisco than to join the After-work Party & Fashion Show organized by the SF Bicycle Coalition. Hundreds of bikers revelled at Rickshaw Stop at 155 Fell Street from 6-10:00pm. They checked out the latest in bicycle fashion and party down after work with music by DJ Sara T, fabulous fashion-y raffle prizes and complimentary bicycle valet.
The Fashion Show was planned, coordinated and produced by stylist and designer Gwen Lutz of Gwendolyn Lee Productions, with artisanal bike clothing by numerous talented designers like B Spoke Tailor, Sheila Moon and Outlier; music by DJ Sara T, raffle prizes and complimentary bicycle valet.
"Everyone had so much fun. I find it extremely fulfilling to work with others and to inspire such a great event," enthused Gwen, "I love being able to help the San Francisco Bike Coalition end Bike to Work day with such a high energy entertaining event." She takes the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and then bikes to work in Oakland.
"It's great to see that a simple post-party celebration has turned into an oportunity to showcase local tailors, retailers and companies and everybody enjoys a good time. Very cool," said Meli Burgueno (aka Meli Grosa) who bikes to work everyday and according to the SF Bay Guardian "is the woman pedaling hard behind the killer San Francisco blog" Bikes and the City.
Fabulous, stylish, elegant yet functional and comfortable biking apparel, bags, head gear, footwear and accessories by talented designers on cool and sexy models... What more do you want?
It was a night to remember for the reveling bikers of San Francisco.
