Recent News

May was a great month which included the Art Deco Preservation Ball, the Kabuki Sundance Film Festival awards dinner, and not to overlook Bay To Breakers!

Thanks to all Art Deco members who came in to the store in search of that one special piece to complete your outfit for the Preservation Ball. We had a lot of fun helping you find a special dress, hat, tailcoat, gloves etc.

Some of the highlights of attending the Kabuki Sundance Film Festival awards dinner was being able to meet some extremely interesting people including directors, movie makers, stylists, and costumers (with the added bonus of having my picture in the Chronicle yay!)

Bay To Breakers was a blast! Thankfully, my staff were willing to accommodate participants who were in the store until nine o'clock Saturday night putting together fun outfits. Luckily we had just bought out a very large theater groups entire wharehouse full of amazing costumes.

June promises to be just as much fun. It's Gay Pride Month with the parade on Sunday June 28th one of San Francisco's highlight events! We're busy stocking as we speak with many unique, flamboyant, and sparkling clothing and costumes.

If anyone knows of any fun and interesting events or if your going to any come by the store, we'd love to help or hear from you!

We Love The Chronicle!

Owner and film fanatic Cicely Ann Hansen recently attended the San Francisco Film Festival awards fundraising dinner at the St. Francis Hotel with awards being handed out to the well know director Francis Ford Coppola and actor Robert Redford. The advantage and the bonus of wearing a green bias cut 1930's evening gown and matching hat was she's on page E8 in the "Datebook" section of Saturday's SF Chronicle!

Cicely enjoyed dressing herself and many of her customers for San Francisco's Black and White Ball. Above photo: featured on the cover of SF Chronicle's "Datebook" along with performer Seal and fireworks over city hall.
