Bay Area designer Tilden Yamamoto has been refining his patterns and sewing technique for two decades. Tucked in a workshop in the forested Oakland hills, he is preparing an array of his latest designs for the "Be Here Last Night" Fashion Show + Celebration.
Peter Hemsley, chef-proprietor of Palette SF, is a long-time supporter, model and champion of Tilden's designs. As Peter prepares to move into Palette's newly renovated 12th Street flagship location, he will be hosting a fashion show and celebration at Palette’s current Folsom Street space featuring a unique showing of Tilden’s newest line of apparel.
Please join us for this warm, joyful night in the cozy space of Palette SF while celebrating the release of Tilden's new collection. Following the fashion show, DJ Frankie will keep the tunes going, drinks will be flowing and bites will be available throughout the night.
VETERAN SEAMSTER, ONE PIECE AT A TIME.
Tilden is a line of clothing made exclusively by Tilden Yamamoto in Oakland, California. An alumni of FIDM San Francisco class of 2000, he has established a long independent career of studying and practicing traditional sewing construction techniques.
Tilden’s style can be described as streetwear meets high plains drifter and contemporary Americana alpine prairie - an aesthetic derived from a 90’s coming of age in the East Bay mixed with influences of years spent fly fishing and exploring throughout Montana, Idaho and Northern Nevada.
Highest quality fabrics and trim components accompany Tilden’s carefully crafted designs and construction. Small batches of found deadstock vintage denim and shirting from American and Japanese mills are commonly used. Tilden also employs contemporary traditional fabrics from older American and Japanese mills still operating today.
A hand-constructed piece from Tilden takes a minimum of one full day to cut and sew. The sewing technique and design encourages many seasons of use, gaining a unique patina and hand as the garment resides with one throughout a rich sporting life.
