NEW YORK—Organizers of LOFT SF, to be held in San Francisco at the Fort Mason Center on Sept. 18-19, are putting the final touches on their event plan and program. The show focuses specifically on independent eyewear collections. According to LOFT's Richard Mewha, "LOFT SF 2021 is looking forward to hosting its second annual curated, independent optical event in the Marina area of San Francisco. Our emphasis this year is on providing a safe, comfortable environment for customers to visit with their favorite vendors and browse some fabulous new ones for the first time in nearly two years."

He added, "We are following SF city rules of mandatory proof of vaccination, masks worn at all times, and have an appointment link on our website, to facilitate a more productive visit for our clients. The venue is located on a magnificent reclaimed Pier overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, and perhaps significantly, Alcatraz! We'll also be hosting a small wine tasting on Saturday evening for our clients to sample wines from two family run vineyards from the area. We will also have a full time barista on hand to keep everyone fully caffeinated."
LOFT exhibition companies include Mykita, Salt, Lafont, Bevel, Blake Kuwahara, Andy Wolf, Blac, Rolf, Rapp, Nina Mur, Vava among others. Appointments can be scheduled online here. The full list of exhibitors is posted on the LOFT website here.
