The article presents information on the outcome of the fourth annual San Francisco Fashion Week. The three nights of runway shows and other events underscored the appetite for independent designers. About 700 people paid $36 to $120 each evening to attend fashion week in the four-story atrium of the San Francisco Design Center. The shows attracted buyers from Macy's West and at least a dozen boutiques in the city where local labels often begin cultivating their fan base.
