Location Westfield, San Francisco Street Level Floor - Next to Burberry Participating Brands AGAATI AGAATI derived from the Sanskrit word Agati means "Origin", arrival or arising.

With the encouragement of a few close friends, Devan quit her corporate day job to build this thing. She was looking for answers to her questions: why can’t I have actual pockets? Do I have to sacrifice dope design for functionality? Is it really this hard to find an approachable statement piece?
This label is the sum of all of those answers.
This label is on a mission to put the “fun” back in functional when it comes to fashion. We want to feel confident and sexy while navigating whatever comes our way at any given moment of the day. Approachable statement pieces designed to integrate with any wardrobe are paired with core silhouettes that have deep pockets, sashes to accentuate any waist and elastic in addition to zippers at the waistline for ease and comfort.
We create garments that will become the most beloved pieces in your wardrobe, the ones you keep going back for over and over again.

Rockridge is a reflection of today’s entrepreneurship culture. Join our tribe. Scotch Bonnet Tracey-Renee Hubbard founded SCOTCHBONNET! fueled by her passion for making cheerful culturally infused items. Named after the distinctively potent Caribbean pepper, SCOTCHBONNET! accessories are known for vibrant hues, bold shapes and eye-catching patterns. The brand’s aesthetic is equally influenced by Tracey-Renee’s love for the flashiness of 90’s hip hop culture and her admiration of the understated simplicity of modern luxury labels. She also has a special place in her heart for Caribbean culture and a deep respect for artisan crafts, particularly those created throughout the African Diaspora.
As a self-taught jewelry designer, Tracey-Renee started making accessories for herself because she wanted big, bold, bright earrings that were lightweight and easy to wear. Her hobby blossomed into a business as demand for her products grew and she expanded into new fashion categories. Her passion for entrepreneurship is fueled by: an industrious upbringing in Wisconsin, academic matriculation at Florida A&M University and The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), and professional experience in sales, marketing and brand development.
When she’s not working in the SCOTCHBONNET! studio Tracey-Renee enjoys checking out art exhibits, eating spicy food, traveling and spending time with her family. VENIM Unequivocally West Coast in both origin and spirit, VENIM was founded in 2018 by Leslie Fong and Kaycee Houchin, who met in design school a decade prior. Their partnership is rooted in a shared passion for impeccable craftsmanship, ethical manufacturing, and unapologetically individualistic designs.
Positioning itself as both a luxury streetwear label and an innovator in custom apparel, VENIM draws inspiration in everything from art, street culture, music, and science fiction to their own family histories of Formula Ford race car driving and disco-era sensibilities.
