Wilkes Bashford is a name which draws ooohs and aaahs from Fashionistas around the Bay Area. Known for carrying the most beautiful designs from Italy’s top designers, Wilkes Bashford has been a San Francisco Bay Area icon since 1966.
This is the store our parents shopped at when we were growing up and as children; we would see all the beautiful clothing they brought home after a shopping trip to the city. Now, in 2012, the iconic shop is celebrating a make-over with newly, redesigned stores in both San Francisco and Palo Alto.
The Palo Alto location, which is near Neiman Marcus at the Stanford Shopping Center, is a cozy shop with both men’s and women’s attire. Shoppers can expect to find fabulous designs from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Brioni, Kiton, Valentino, Chloe, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin and more.
The amazing mix of apparel, shoes, handbags, fine designer jewelry, fragrances and accessories is any fashion-savvy shoppers dream. The new, open floor plan in Palo Alto lets you, as a shopper, see the entire layout and easily find the department you wish to shop in right away. Love that!
In order to celebrate the Grand Re-Opening of the Palo Alto location, Wilkes Bashford threw a fabulous cocktail party complete with runway show, DJ and live acrobats. The runway show featured fall and resort clothing from Italy’s top designers which drew ooohs and aaahs from the fashionable crowd.
Below you will find photos from the Grand Re-Opening event in Palo Alto which took place on Friday, November 16th from 7pm to 9:30pm. The event was amazing, and of course the merchandise in-store is even more amazing! To learn more about Wilkes Bashford, and to see a list of fabulous in-store events, please visit WilkesBashford.com.
