Welcome to the Presidio Chapel
Summer is coming to an end and this summer was one of the busiest in Glammic’s history. We had a summer fling with the historic Presidio in San Francisco, creating handmade banners for the Presidio Chapel.
Inspired by the artwork of Ryan Jones, each of the fabric banners created at Glammic has an applique based off of Jones’s illustrations of plants and animals native to the Presidio.
Each four by five foot banner is one-of-a-kind, handcrafted and features larger than life appliques. Brittany created the appliques by interpreting Jones’s illustrations into fabric. After lots of drawing, cutting, sewing, and assembling, the Glammic crew headed over to the Presidio to see the banners installed.
Why are we still talking about this? Head over to the Presidio and check them out for yourself! There are tons of events at the Presidio with fun for everyone.

We’re just a veggie loving bunch!
June has come again, which means it’s the perfect weather for summer fun. And what’s yummier during the summertime than fresh produce?
Good thing June happens to be National Fruit and Vegetable month!
Looking for a fun activity to do this summer? Get your produce when its freshest by visiting one of the many farms outside of the city that offer self-picking services. Kids love getting to pick their own food and there’s many different options such as peaches and berries to keep you hungry.
To celebrate the yummy-goodness at Glammic we’ve been showcasing some happy produce appliques. From dancing bananas to grinning carrots, all our produce have a little pep in their step.

As spring begins to bloom into summer, so does wedding season! With romance in the air at Glammic, we’ve created the new Glammic Flower Girl Collection. Pictured with pink tulle, this dress can be changed to match any wedding’s color scheme. Check out our window with mannequins that almost seem to be alive!
Did you know that flower girls have been in weddings for centuries? Historically, flower girls used to carry items to symbolize prosperity and over time became a staple of weddings all over the world. Since the Victorian Age dresses have typically been white with different color accents.
Look forward to the launch of our collection in June!

The weather has been beautiful in San Francisco recently- which is perfect timing for Earth Day! This year we got fancy with our window display, featuring an awesome globe made by Glammic designer Brittany Burggraff.
Earth Day isn’t the most well-known holiday, in fact it was only started in 1970 by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, but at Glammic we’re celebrating our planet in full force. Quick quiz – do you know what the 3 R’s are? If you said Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle then you are correct!

Check out the ferocious new Cheetah and Zebra!
Easter was an exciting time at Glammic. Our window featured awesome yarn balloons made by Jena, which added a cool art element to the display.
We also took part in our first ever parade, proudly marching down Union for the 22nd Annual Union Street Easter Parade. Despite the rain, the sky opened up just long enough for us to strut our stuff. From cart wheeling bunnies and hens to a princess frog and roller skating unicorn, the Glammic team made quite the impression. It was a fun day for all and we’ll definitely be back next year for seconds! Check out some photos from the event, including some photos from SFGate!

Happy Chinese New Year!
Here at Glammic we’re ringing in the new year with our second annual Chinese New Year window, celebrating the year of the Water Snake. Did you know that each Chinese zodiac has different traits? For example, people born under the Snake zodiac during the water year are said to be insightful, intelligent, and organized.
Additionally, the new year is the perfect time to clean and prepare for the coming months. Fun fact: it’s traditionally frowned upon sweeping during the new year because it’s believed you’ll be sweeping out all the good luck.
Done and done!

Here in San Francisco, the days are getting shorter and weather colder. But Glammic won’t be slowing down. Our latest season-inspired window features a turkey appliqued ShirtCape and a beautiful array of leaves. What would autumn be without the beautiful, crunchy leaves that decorate the tree branches and sidewalks? In fact, the term “fall” originates from how leaves fall from trees this time of year. And even more interesting, the natural color of leaves are the orange and yellow hues that appear after summer ends.
As November continues to dwindle by, don’t forget to enjoy the changing of seasons before the holiday mania begins!

Carrot, Lobster, Pufferfish, and Shark- Oh My!
As everyone starts stocking up on candy for trick-or-treaters, Glammic is gearing up for Halloween! We love dressing up and nothing can be funner than an awesome costume. From healthy costumes- eggplant anyone?- to the eight-eyed spider, Glammic has both the frightening and the endearing! In fact, according to the National Retail Federation, over 40% of Americans dress up annually! For a holiday that dates back over 6,000 years and suspected of originating in Ireland, Halloween has become a classic American holiday.
With October 31st fast approaching, Glammic wants to remind everyone to have a safe, fun night. Some of our favorite safety tips include carrying flashlights, wearing glow in the dark or reflective items, and always being alert.

The Olympics may be over, but not at Glammic! This month we had several different Olympic-inspired window displays. Although the first Olympics were nude, we had a hard time working that into our windows. Instead, we decided to feature a sport that has only been in the Olympics once – tug of war. Not only was the event included in the 1908 Summer Olympics in London, but all three medals went to different Great Britain teams!
Here at Glammic, we’re gearing up for our own games. Stay tuned for a special announcement regarding the 2012 Glammpic Games!
A Gripping (Literally) Match!
