[EVENT] eighty twenty trunk show -SF


Azalea Boutique, 411 Hayes Street, San Francisco, CA
Sunday, May 15, 1PM - 6PM

Spend the afternoon with shoe desginer, CeCe Chin and you'll understand why it's so hard to resist her handpainted canvas sneakers. The idea came from her observation that people tend to wear their favorite 20% of their wardrobe 80% of the time- and these shoes are definitely a part of the 20% you just can't live without. Come and see the ten sassy styles that put a sexy spin on the infamous "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" slip on. 80's graphics like rainbows and hearts grab that sticker collection within!

About Ce Ce Chin:
Ce Ce Chin is an accessories designer who's quickly becoming known for her signature cocktail of major-label craft and street-level attitude. Chin moved to NY in 1994, and cut her teeth designing for powerhouses like Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and DKNY. But all along, she felt that something was missing. And that something was the perfect shoe. The shoe for the girl who's finally over tomboy sneakers and skateboarder boyfriends…well almost. So, last year, Chin burst onto the scene with Eighty Twenty, her new footwear company.
