S&G Clothing is the creative collaboration of design duo Sequoia Emmanuelle and Gita Salem. Founded in 2007, the San Francisco based brand grew out of the rich and dynamic underground performing arts community of the Bay Area. Just a year ago, the label moved their headquarters to Hollywood and opened a boutique on Melrose Avenue. Their designs have made appearances in Prince's 2010 Summer tour, and on rockers Marilyn Manson and Taylor Momsen, among others.
The Spring 2012 collection looks and feels like urban and edgy hipster strutting it in Venice Beach. With pieces ranging from grungy street wear to sexy evening gowns made mainly of organic materials, the S&G collection is an exploration into creative tailoring and structure. Sequoia and Gita have said, ” Our company and our designs are an expression of the conversation we’re having with society as it evolves around us. The information comes at a rapid pace and each day we adapt.”

The SACHIKA Spring 2012 Collection, titled, "Mermaid Paradise: Dance with the Ocean" showcases the designers' signature style. Satin body con dresses geometrically shaped and in brilliant colors of aqua and coral shared the runway with flow-binding and un-demurely sultry evening gowns. The show opened with an exotic dance performance featuring scantily clad "Adams and Eves" that could qualify as a fashion musing in and of its own.

What I Wore
Dress: Eva Franco/my current obsession. The fit is hourglass amazing and the material is simultaneously lux and breathable. It makes for an unconventional LBD.
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
