The renewed interest and increased popularity of trunk shows in San Francisco is attributed, in part, to Susan and Lynn's concerted networking efforts among Bay Area women. They are actively spreading the word on the benefits of this type of personal wardrobing service: a convenient, comfortable, hassle free, alternative shopping experience. With Etcetera's high-quality clothing, Susan and Lynn can focus on outstanding customer service.


Experience the the individual attention to your wardrobing needs you deserve. Susan and Lynn work by appointment-only so each woman will have privacy, attention and dedicated service. As with any trunk show, there is a sample set of the collection. The sample set will have an assortment of sizes. Everything in the show will be available to order in sizes 00 - 16 (XS - XL) with a fast turn around once you place your order, and an easy exchange/return policy.


Entering the showroom, you will be greeted with a warm welcome and a glass of champagne. You can view the Collection in a relaxed, friendly environment. The goal is your complete satisfaction - that "Aha" fashion moment. Always mindful of your time and budget, Susan and Lynn provide knowledgable, non-intimidating service. Their combined experience makes the showroom consultation a meaningful engagement for all women, as expressed by Lilian Pea, a newcomer to the trunk show concept, "I didn't know what to expect when arriving at the showroom. Their passion for fashion paired with providing a pleasant experience was so calming, I easily followed their lead as they created styles for me that were within my comfort level, both in apparel and economically. It was a real, no-pressure environment."


The Etcetera management and design teams possess an outstanding fashion pedigree, having gained experience at Oscar De La Renta, Tahari, Rachel Zoe, and Ann Klein, among others. Each Collection is the result of this collective knowledge, intuitive design sense and studied understanding of the perfect fit and function for their designs. The designers create garments and looks that are classic, yet fashion forward. The boutique line perfects the looks you're after: professional, classy, chic, smart, casual, Etcetera. These experts consider aspects that go beyond 'just wearing.'


While each season's collection is stylistically distinct, all offer superior textiles from the best mills in Italy, France and England. Whether it's a rich boucle for a jacket, an amazing silk for a lining, or a high-tech stretch for a pant, the fabrics give each piece quality and character. Fit is a crucial component to comfort, therefore a lot of the fabric stretches. The clothes are designed on a size 8 fit model (not sizes 2-4 used by most designers) - that's a big deal when the average woman's size in the U.S. is 12. Garments have generous seam allowances for alterations to achieve a more perfect fit to your unique shape. Typically, ankle length pant styles have a 29"/30" inseam; full length styles a 33"/34" inch inseam. Most pants have a 2" hem. All styles are available in sizes 00 - 16.


From concept to completion, each Etcetera piece is impeccable in detail. Each flawless garment is the result of longtime relationships with the most discerning manufacturers, ensuring the highest level of consistency and quality.


Because the Etcetera Collection is sold exclusively via trunk shows, the conventional and costly retail overhead is eliminated. This direct sales business model allows Etcetera Consultants to offer clothing of unparalleled quality at extremely competitive prices.
