Runway Recap: CCSF's Decadence Spring Fashion Show
by SF Indie Fashion

Spring fashion show Decadence from City College of San Francisco celebrated student-produced fashion alongside another important milestone: the 10th anniversary of the local school's fashion department.

Atop a raised runway stretching the length of the dance floor at Ruby Skye on a late May Sunday evening, the fashion show featuring three senior collections, four fashion segments, dance and music performances put the school's ample talent on display in front of a packed house of fellow students, families and media. Produced by students in a fashion production class taught by Macy's Natalie Smith, the show included both senior collections and group segments with themes such as Studio 54 and In Full Bloom.

Along with the fashion on view, additional highlights included a funding gift from alum and fashion show producer Owen Buenaventura, whose Black V fashion show raised money for the school's fashion department, and the presentation of a two-year Academy of Art University scholarship to outstanding student Kika Hewel.

Below, we recap a selection of what went down the runway:
