Sacramento is a city emerging in the world of fashion. With showcases of talented local designers through regional runway shows, marketplaces, and Sacramento Fashion Week, the city boasts an arena of upcoming designers. These four fashion designers are among Sacramento’s most noteworthy—creating an ongoing stream of show-stopping garments and accessories.
After immigrating from Taiwan to the United States, the different cultures and styles of her home country and new residency in the U.S. serve as inspiration to Lisa Lo. Textures and patterns in her fashion pieces create one-of-a-kind, award-winning looks. Diversity is key to Lo’s innovative collections—first basing styles from her imagination and then looking to the culture around her for originality. Over the years, various shows and prestigious industry-leading names showcased Lo’s signature collections, including local events like Sacramento Fashion Week and Sacramento Magazine. She also gained international recognition from Russian Times Magazine and the Best Ready to Wear award from Fashion Community Week.
Gina 0f Pixie Gift Fashions
Launched only four years ago in 2014, Pixie Gift Fashions is a Sacramento-born company that specializes in fairytale-like garments. The brains behind PGF is Gina, whose fashion blog, “Sacramento Style by Gina,” paved the road to her building her brand and fantasy styled collections. Between Pixie Gift Fashions’ launch in 2014 to today, Gina established a list of features, showcases, and mentions, from pristine outlets and events—SacAnime Summer’s Geek Fashion Show, Sacramento Fashion Week, and LA-based Pretty in Petticoats magazine are among those that have featured her looks. When not fashioning her designs, the Sacramento theater showcases Gina’s work as the lead costume stitcher.
This local designer creates ready-to-wear fashions, specializing in handmade beanies, African head wraps, and other accessories. Designer Nina Isis launched her brand, Purple Party Designs, in 2007 while making custom garments for private clients and realizing her own potential as a designer. A brand over ten years in the making, local Sacramento events and markets featured Nina’s pieces—Sacramento African Market Place, the Sacramento Black Expo Convention, and The Diva Market. Nina’s designs honor African roots while embracing modern trends that women from all walks of life can feel ravishing in. Her fashions are currently up for purchase on Nina’s Etsy store.
