On December 9th West Coast Leather and clothing designer DK 8 hosted a public shopping event with champagne and hors d'oeuvres to showcase their clothing partnership.

During the trunk show, high fashion photographer Alex Matt came to the store along with four models.

An editorial photoshoot took place during the trunk show inside the store and in the surrounding retail blocks of Cow Hollow / the Marina District where the store is located.  

DK 8 is an LA-based fashion designer for high-end men's and women's leather jackets, vests, and other clothing styles.  Among their many fashion talents, the father and son designer duo excel in making unique, one-of-a-kind, custom pieces for their customers.

The models included Taree Myers, Jamie Lee Kendall, as well as a San Francisco fashion / glamour model and a model / designer.

-Taree wore the Ferrari Yellow Coat Dress as one of the highlights of her shoot.  Jamie wore clothing from the vintage collection, including a royal purple dress from the 1994 North Beach Leather vintage collection. Taree and the fashion / glamour model did a scene focusing on the snakeskin motorcycle jackets.

All four models wore black oversized men's leather jackets over women's West Coast Leather clothing for one of the editorial scenes.  Women wearing oversized jackets is a huge trend right now (and in particular, men's oversized jackets).

The inspiration for the men's jackets scene was from North Beach Leather's Fall Catalog with Cindy Crawford in 1993 where she wore an assortment of mask color block jackets (Japanese, African).  She wore it with nothing else.
