thread | bare : TONIGHT! JUNE 11 at THE LAB in San Francisco 7pm Doors


thread | bare
Why shop at the boring ol' mall when you can support local designers — and see the clothes in a runway show populated by local performers, including the fabulous Fauxnique? Plus, not for nothing is "thread | bare" dubbed "a striptease fashion auction," since you can bid on, and get your mitts on, outfits as soon as they come down the catwalk. If you can't make tonight's festivities, which also feature a performance by all-male burlesque troupe SF Boylesque, stop by the Lab to peruse the goods during the weekend-long trunk show. Designs include the "neo-couture" of Miss Velvet Cream, graphic tees by Turk and Taylor, dresses by Invisible Hero Clothing, and more, plus several artists who work with repurposed materials, including Kittinhawk, Mittenmaker, and Ghetto Goldilocks. Recycling is fierce! (Eddy)
7–10 p.m., $10–$20

thread | bare is a celebration of Bay Area independent fashion spirit. Local designers innovating in form, material, and interpretation create one-of-a-kind works and are brought together with performers to showcase their fabrications. The clothes are auctioned right off the models as they walk the runway, while scores of outfits and accessories are available in the concurrent trunk show.
Read why 7x7 Magazine thinks thread | bare is a must see.
