Opel Productions and Syd Gris celebrate their 7th anniversary by presenting their annual fashion and music event "Designer Showcase" in collaboration with Eternal Spring Productions on May 1st at the Mezzanine here in San Francisco.

This show celebrates fashion in a very unique way by presenting local designers in a midnight runway and showcase their work. The theme is based on cycles that represent changing in time and as a symbol of re-birth in many cultures. With this, Opel, Syd, designers, and guests are celebrating merits, creativity, and ideas that'll be a part of the future. Inspirations come from classic styles, flirty attitude, anime costumes, modern silhouettes, lace and trims, and playful details gather up distinctive items like feathered hats and hair pieces, jewelry, vivid clothing, and costume garments come to take part of an outstanding all-nighter show.

Designers include:

  • Ella Mental + Little Red Sparrow
  • Kayo
  • Dandelions & Dean
  • miss velvet cream x Estar x Josie Adele
  • Dimitri & Devora
  • Vindyco
  • Invisible Hero Industries
Featuring Stanton Warriors as musical guests to pump up the room with energetic hip-hop funk.

The event will run from 10pm to 4am and the runway show will promptly begin at 12am so come early, meet creative and artistic people, have a couple drinks, dance your bootie off, and enjoy the show!
