FEATURED COLLECTIONS BY:

- ELIZABETH KAY
Elizabeth Kay studied cosmetology and interned with successful stylist Alex Creapau for three years learning the trade of beauty, style and fashion. During this time, she worked on photoshoots, indie films, and a sophisticated clientele list. In 2007, she enrolled in Academy of Art University in San Francisco and has worked on several local fashion shows as well as producing her own show for the school's fashion club. In 2009, Elizabeth interned for Max Azria Group in Los Angeles and will complete a second internship this summer.

- KARINA CASTREJON
Karina Castrejon studied fashion design at Academy of Art University and is currently attending San Francisco State University. She recently showcased her new collection during Fashion Network Association’s City Chic: Revamped Fashion Event in December 2010. She is inspired by Chanel, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera. Karina is eyeing New York to show her collection, where someday she hopes to open her retail store. Creating timeless pieces is her ultimate goal.

- NNEKA
Penelope Adibe was born and raised in North London, England of immigrant parents. Her mother is German and father is Nigerian. After high school, Penelope had a stall in London’s Camden market, studied at St Martins School of Art and worked as an intern for Vivienne Westwood. In the 1990’s Penelope moved to the United States and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion at the San Francisco Academy of Arts. She won the Macy’s Award for Most Stylish Collection 1994. After working for Chuck D of Public Enemy and his clothing line Rapp Style International, Penelope started her own label: Nneka – a name given by her Nigerian grandmother.

- REVELATION BY M.E.
“M.E.” is Myrda Monasterial and Eloisa Serrano, both alums of Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising – they are the co-designers of Revelation by M.E.

It is inevitable that their passion for style brought them together while designing for a San Francisco label. They collaborated on an innovative design concept where one dress could be worn a few different ways, simply by flipping it, reversing it or removing a piece of it, hence the birth of Revelation by M.E. collection in the Spring of 2009. They believe that style and sophisticated design should be easy and comfortable to wear.

Eloisa, a Bay Area native, achieved her BFA in Fashion Design from the Art Institute of California. Myrda originated from Las Vegas and earned a BA in history at University of Nevada Las Vegas.

- ZOE HONG
Zoe Hong was born in Seoul, Korea and grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, schlepping dog-eared copies of fashion magazines on family fishing trips. She moved to Los Angeles after high school to attend Otis College of Art and Design, where she studied under amazing talents as varied as Bob Mackie and Michelle Mason. Upon graduation, she spent the next few years working as a designer in Los Angeles, and then later in San Francisco, until she decided to open her own business. In 2005, Zoë won “Fresh Blood”, a design competition in San Francisco. The following year, she won the Gen Art / Perrier “Bubbling Under” Design Competition.

JEWELRY DESIGN -

- BRIGHT LIGHT DESIGNS

Meagan Reelitz founded her jewelry company Bright Light Designs in 2008. As a cellist with professional credits, playing to her own tune and making a living from an artistic venture was always a dream.

She grew up in the wide-open spaces of the Midwest United States in Des Moines, Iowa. After graduating from Indiana University with a BA in Afro-American Studies and Communication and Culture, she moved to Atlanta to perform a year of service with AmeriCorps. In working jobs from women’s advocate to paralegal, the creative itch refused to go away.

In 2007, when she moved to San Francisco she began making jewelry. She took every class a local bead store had to offer, and ultimately attended the prestigious Revere Academy in downtown SF and graduated from their Graduate Jeweler program.

- MS. BELLEZA

MsBellezza is a high-fashion jewelry line, local to the Bay Area. Using Swarovski crystals, semiprecious stones, and exquisite metal and beadwork, MsBellezaa offers three collections, Everyday, Cocktail, and Bridal. Every piece has a limited quanitity, sometimes only having 1 or 3 pieces for each design. The three paradigms ensure that there is something perfect for every woman. The Everday collection features charming jewelry for everyday wear that is conservative and suitable for the workplace. In all three collections, we pride ourselves in being affordable while still offering glamours and luxe jewelry, allowing style to come first and the price tag second.
