House of Hengst

In the spirit of warming up to San Francisco style… House of Hengst, is one of designer I really enjoy keeping tabs on. Bi-coastal with a warm spirit, Susan Hengst has a studio/shoppe on Valencia Street. She started her career in fashion as a vintage buyer, and learned to sew from her grandmother, you get the sense from browsing through her collection. I stumbled upon her actually… in real life, as I was walking down Valencia street, the clothing caught my eye. Susan happened to be in the shoppe, and we chatted for a bit as I tried on just about every piece in there. The clothes are beautifully made, and really unique. It’s worth the trip down to the Mission…
