San Diego’s Passion for Fashion: THREAD

New York, Los Angeles and…San Diego? Yup, you can add America’s Finest City to the list of top fashion destinations thanks to THREAD. The multi-city shopping event promoting emerging designers and artists comes to San Diego this Sunday, Oct. 9 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Horton Event Space in Horton Plaza shopping center. Those who know me know that I have been known to lose all sense of budgetary wisdom when it comes to fashion, so I can’t wait to stock up on clothing and accessories from our many talented local designers that will be showcasing their wares. And the best part is that in addition to the lively party atmosphere that makes the event so fun, the designers participating will be offering below retail pricing.

So much more than just a fashion trunk show, THREAD includes a slew of activities to keep you entertained all afternoon, including live music, a pop-up local art gallery, the Style Lounge, manicure and pedicure station, a photo booth, live screen printing stations, a special “man cave” for the guys and so much more. Plus, designers will be offering a variety of giveaways all day long.

Interested in attending THREAD? We’re giving away 3 sets of tickets for you and a guest to enjoy the celebration of all things fabulous this Sunday. Just leave a comment on this post before 10:00 am on Wednesday, Oct. 5 to be entered to win, and we’ll select three winners at random to receive THREAD tickets for you and a guest. See you at the show!

About Candice

Foodie, craft beer nerd, shopaholic, music geek, photographer and contemporary art fan could all be used to describe me. I’m a big proponent of highlighting San Diego’s hidden gems and local businesses and breaking stereotypes about our city. We’re more than just sunshine and beaches (though those are nice, too!). What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day? Eating and shopping around my favorite neighborhoods: Golden Hill, South Park, North Park, Little Italy and Hillcrest. Then popping into one of our great art museums and capping off the night with some live music and a a local beer at The Casbah. What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity? Does shopping count as an outdoor activity? Or checking out the public art around town, like at Chicano Park? I do love visiting the La Jolla tide pools in the summer and ice skating at the outdoor rinks that go up each winter. Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine? Let's get one thing straight here: San Diego craft beer goes with everything, not just burgers. Though it is really good with a burger. Latest music purchases for my iPod player are… I’m lucky to be married to a music journalist, so advance copies of the newest albums are constantly available to me for free. But I can’t seem to stop playing the new album by CHVRCHES, and San Diego band Rocket from the Crypt have been on repeat a lot lately.
