A brilliant and shimmering palette of metallic gold hues contributes to this lively color trend, evolving into warm shades of tangerine, sun and marigold as the season progresses. Bold black and white morph geometrics into optical illusions while the inclusion of primary brights adds freshness.

Minimalist silhouettes emphasize a cool contemporary edge using silver, metallic and sheer sci-fi materials. A sensuous palette of flesh tone hues combined with new pales and metallic, form fitting curves and draping when combined with soft tailoring.

Color/Silhouette Summary

Simple country plaids, relaxed cotton fabrics and the colors of nature combine with the season's freshest silhouettes to create a modern look for spring. Modern dressing continues to evolve; as slim fit becomes mainstream, fluid shapes, lightweight layering and subtle patterns are the foundation.

Shine in the form of metallic or patent leather take center stage as well as crisp denim, utility pocket details and bold graphic stripes. The palette is refreshingly basic.

Pure blue and white infused with limited color. Organic fabrications are now at the forefront, defining a new way to think about "eco" style. An athletic aesthetic takes a more prominent role in contemporary sportswear. The result is a fusion of design, materials and attitude.

Hot list:
  • Navy pinstripe suits
  • Pink shirtings
  • Chambray shirts
  • Yellow pique polos
  • Slim khakis
  • Knit ties
  • Button-front polos
  • Lightweight nylon jackets
  • Colored mocs

About the Junior League San Francisco Fashion Show:

The 84th Annual Junior League of San Francisco (JLSF) Fashion Show Committee is proud to announce the theme for the 2010 Fashion Show - "Through the Looking Glass". The Fashion Show will take place on Friday, March 19 at the Fairmont Hotel.

The JLSF runway fashion show is a breathtaking production filled with drama and elegance with fashions modeled by Junior League members. This year will feature two show options: a fashionable champagne luncheon and a black-tie gala dinner dance at the Fairmont Hotel.

Each show will also include a fabulous silent auction and an exciting live auction. The JLSF Fashion Show is the longest-running event of its kind in the nation and a premier fundraising event in San Francisco. In its 84 year history, the Show has raised many millions of dollars for the Bay Area Community.

New This Year:

Celebrity Designer, Trina Turk, will be in attendance and will walk the runway following the show segment that features her spring 2010 designs.

This year's Fashion Show marks the 22nd anniversary with our long-term event partner, Macy's, and our 51st anniversary of the JLSF's relationship with the Fairmont Hotel.

Back by popular demand, Wacoal will sponsor the exciting intimate apparel segment in the Show for the second year. The Show will feature organic, locally grown cuisine and this year's evening gala guests will be treated to a live band and dancing following the show.

This year's theme is "Through the Looking Glass." It was inspired by Lewis Carroll's iconic stories about Alice in Wonderland. The theme lends itself to a variety of familiar motifs and icons from the treasured books which will be used to bring the Show to life in a very visual, yet modern way.

As next year also marks the JLSF's centennial celebration, we invite attendees to peer through the looking glass to see what the future holds for the next stage in the League's evolution as well as look back into the past as we commemorate its vast history.

Proceeds from the fashion show will go to the JLSF and help fund the JLSF's community programs, which provide financial, advocacy and volunteer support in key areas such as tutoring and mentoring, educational workshops and cultural enrichment programs to Bay Area families in need.

JLSF strives to make a positive impact where help is most needed, and from 2007-2012 the focus area of the JLSF is Support and Strengthening Families in Need. Community Programs Supported in 2009/2010 include Compass Community Services, International Rescue Committee, San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center, Support for Families of Children with Disabilities.
