Cute selection, Great customer service from Dema herself! – DEMA is great. I stopped in during the holidays and bought an Orla Kiely handbag and have returned several times. She has a cute selection- her own line, DEMA, as well as Orla Kiely, Mon Petit Oiseau, Puella, Porridge, Laurie B, and more. The environment is colorful and reminds me of being in a candy store for clothing.
Contemporary clothing that hints of the '60s--and an on-site designer. – In Short
In the heart of the increasingly style-sensitive Mission lies this showcase for owner Dema Grimm's original designs. In addition to Grimm's '60s-influenced clothing, the store offers a selection of T-shirts and handbags by other independent designers. Dema's "singular apparel for the modern woman" includes floral-print capris, flowing polka-dot knee-length skirts and cropped zipper jackets.
DEMA = my favorite – DEMA is a mandatory stop for every one of my visiting stylemonging friends, and they rarely leave emptyhanded. The fabrics feel as good as they look, too -- lush cashmere, softspun wool, silk lined brocades. The store's selection includes snuggly sweaters and essential separates plus a variety of accessories --guaranteed you'll pick up something to gush over. Its interesting, colorful collection reflects a true San Francisco DIY spirit. Plus: Neko Case says DEMA makes the best pants in the world.
This is where the cool kids shop – If you want to wow your friends with the newest and coolest styles, this is the place to shop. Whether you are looking for just the right outfit, or the coolest wallet a lady could have in their purse, this is the place to go! There are so many gems in this store that you have to visit weekly to be able to keep up on all the fresh merchandise made with love by locals. There is so much coolness in this store, you might have to bring a jacket just to go shopping!!
Dema is the best – Dema's clothes are unique, feminine and artistic. I always know I can find something there that is current with fashion trends, but not exactly like everything everyone else is wearing. whenever i wear something from Dema, I get a thousand compliments. Her clothes truly stand out.
YES YES YES – All the girls who I have been attracted to over the past year have all lived and died by what is being sold at Dema's. They look great, it makes present shopping easy, and I actually now know something about woman's clothing!!!!!
wonderful find ! – I love this little store. They love to carry locally made things, hand made things. I flipped over the hand crochetted socks made by a woman in NYC. I bought a darling knit hat made by an older Chinese lady who lives in the neighborhood. Cute purese - nearly bought one but restrained myself.
Cute clothes, not cheap – Cute, nicely designed and creative clothes, Mission-made! Only downside is that most of the clothes only come in small sizes, and since they're only made in very small quantities, everything's quite pricey.
No mod con – When I shop for my ladies, I shop at Dema because I want them to look sexy and classy. Dema is original, classic and tasteful. Even pretty cheap as original fashions go.
