- Cirque Noir is the design duo of Dallas Coulter & Melissa Tan. Dallas, who hails from New York, came to San Francisco to study fashion at the Art Institute. Melissa is a Bay Area native whose love of fashion led her to study at the Academy of Art University. Drawn together by their shared love of moribund beauty the ephemeral, they create modern, preternaturally nostalgic pieces inspired by lost dolls and woodland creatures.
- SHAUN TIANGSING is a very disciplined up-and-coming photographer that works with SFFAMA at many events like San Francisco Fashion Week. He was nominated for Best Photographer at San Francisco Fashion Awards 2011. His work has been published in SF Chronicles’s Style section. A self-proclaimed introvert with a bad memory, Shaun uses photography as a tool to document or remember things. His poignant relationship with the camera makes him an outstanding photographer with the appreciation of the craft as an art form.
