Fabulous Wilkes Bashford
Going on its 47th year, the always posh and fabulous Wilkes Bashford decided it was time for a facelift. To celebrate the completion of the renovation and new look, the store threw back-to-back fetes at their San Francisco and Palo Alto locations. The events reflected the luxury brand of Wilkes Bashford: elegant, current, and a touch playful. With a chic vintage-circus theme, the events featured talented contortionists, stilt walkers, a magician from LA, a contact-juggler, hoop and ribbon dancers, a tarot reader, photo shoot style photo booth, and DJ. Guests were able to interact with the talent as they snacked on passed hors d’oeuvres, browsed the shelves for new winter accessories, and watched a fashion show of all the latest men and women’s fashion.
Needless to say, the events were unique and sophisticated – just as the founder, Wilkes Bashford, intended the brand to be.
