Three local female designers, Jessica Summers, Larissa Verdussen, and Andrea Lamadora, has come together to open Loft 1513, a boutique in Noe Valley of San Francicso. What do these three have in common other than fashion? A passion for eco friendly materials, an eye for texture and detail, and an understandng of true craftmanship.

Loft 1513 showcases an ecletic mix of women’s, men’s, children’s clothing, hand crafted jewelry and accessories from local and eco friendly designers such as I-kohl, House of Mamas, Arara, Sea Pony, Celestial, RFD Eco Couture, & Audrey Acosta Designs. Like Shotwell, the boutique helps many independent designers to get started as they constantly house new designers weekly. With such a variety, it would be impossible not to find an original one-of-a-kind treat at Loft 1513. From exquisite Brazilian jewelries to unique dresses and custom made leather belts and holster bags. You will find wearable art for any occasion with reasonable prices.

Loft 1513 is having their first store party this Saturday, September 19th from 3pm to 9pm at the boutique. Many of the local designers will be there so stop by to shop, drink and socialize. They will be holding a fashion show, FREEDOM FIBERS, revealing their latest collections at 7pm.

Here’s a Utility belt made of leather and a semi precious stone by Arara. A perfectly stylish piece to put your phone, camera, and wallet. The belt is $190 and you can buy at http://www.ararasf.com or at the boutique. You can also get yours custom made! Just ask one of the designers.
