San Francisco, California (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
San Francisco is known for its fashion innovators. Levi Strauss invented fashion staple “jeans” in the city by the bay. Donald and Doris Fisher created the nation’s largest clothing retailer, The Gap, in the fog-lined city. Alexander Wang and Derek Lam are San Francisco designers and CFDA winners that have made their mark on fashion. Who is the next great fashion innovator? J’Amy Tarr.
