SF Mayor Ed Lee at FiSF
Here's the FiSF gang with Mayor Lee at FiSF yesterday.


We love that SF Mayor Ed Lee cares about supporting the SF Bay Area Fashion industry.  Did you know San Francisco is the 3rd largest garment manufacturing city in the USA?  Local fashion creates (and keeps) jobs in our local economy!
