Miss Velvet Cream & E-star Trunk Sale Art Show

Miss Velvet Cream designer and crafter, Scatha G. Allison has established herself as a San Francisco designer creating one-of-a-kind custom items, and specializing in couture techniques and salvage reconstruction. Scatha is the author of “Jean Therapy“, the original guide to denim reconstruction. She has over 1000 one-of-a-kind pieces completed by hand since 2003, as well as a long resume of shows and events in SF.

HATS, HATS and more HATS: that’s what E-star is all about right now. Although she has been known to dabble in clothing, interior design, and even footwear, E-star is winning the world over: one bare head at a time. Whether you are looking for a dazzling cocktail hat, a tiny top hat, or just something cute and cozy to hide that bad hair day, E-star has you covered.
