Our Story

At San Francisco City Lights, we find beauty in simplicity. The warmth of a sunny day. The gently flowing breeze. The glow of a midnight beach bonfire. It’s all simple. It’s all beautiful. It’s all at the heart of the California lifestyle—and the San Francisco City Lights way.

Originally founded in 1987, we have a sun-soaked heritage in designing exceptionally comfortable and contemporary women’s apparel, all inspired by the laid-back California lifestyle. One of our original designers, Anna Woloshko, has been beckoned by the city lights and returned to San Francisco to give our brand a new casual look and feel.

Our California dream-inspired designs are lovingly handcrafted right here at home with our signature comfort fabric that is as luxuriously soft and gentle as a cool Pacific breeze. From basic to fashion pieces, and everything in between, we’re bringing you casual, modern and super soft pieces in beautiful seasonal colors that fit you—and your life—perfectly.

You know that feeling when a place is so beautiful and relaxing you don’t want to leave? Our clothes are kind of like that. Once you slip into them, you slip into the California state of mind, and you’ll never want to leave. They are that, early morning stroll on the beach with the sun on your face and the wind in your hair, comfortable.

San Francisco City Lights. Live in Pure Comfort.

 

Our Craft

We lovingly handcraft all of our clothes right here in California.

But what does that really mean?

It means we design, cut and sew each garment by hand and with love, right here at home, with fabrics that are all knit in California.

With exceptional skill and decades of experience, our talented seamstresses know what it takes to bring each design to life with an unmatched level of quality and craftsmanship. Their exquisite attention to detail and overwhelming passion for the craft can be found within each stitch of our high-quality garments.

Our garments are pre-shrunk to give you the perfect fit, and made with color-rich dyes to give you beautiful seasonal colors that last. So you can wear and wash all of your new favorite pieces over and over again.

We’re here to give you peace and comfort in mind, body and spirit. We want you to wear each garment with all of your heart. Because we’ve made it with all of ours.
