Thread Show! Details & Ticket Giveaway

It's probably pretty obvious that I'm not much of a shopper. My wardrobe consists mostly of band t-shirts, jeans, and hoodies, and I haven't been shopping in a mall in San Diego in probably five years, but for the fashionistas out there who pay a bit more attention to their appearance, Thread Shows are a great place to find unique apparel and goods. And for those not so interested in shopping, they've added NOSH to their show, which will offer small plate offerings from local eateries for $1-$3.

The Thread Show takes place on Sunday, September 26 at the Horton Plaza event space at 4th & Broadway from 11am-6pm. The cost is $10, or $5 if you RSVP, but I've got THREE pairs of tickets to giveaway. Just send me a tweet "@SDdialedin I wanna go to @ThreadShows on Sunday!" and I'll pick three winners before Friday. Click the flyer for more info, or click 'keep on reading' at the bottom of the post for the full press release.

THREAD Show Brings Indie Fashion, Art, Music and Food to San Diego this Fall
THREAD Show presents NOSH at THREAD Show, a new concept incorporating food tastings from San Diego restaurants, in its September 2010 show

San Diego, THREAD Show is proud to introduce NOSH to the September 2010 show. NOSH is an event concept featuring local restaurants selling sample-sized portions for $1 - $3, as well as small plates. THREAD will still feature the independent designers, shopping, art, house wares, fashion shows, live DJs and all-day giveaways the show is known for but NOSH will feature an additional 15,000 square feet of great food, all-day DJ entertainment and free restaurant giveaways, all included in the entrance fee to THREAD Show.

“San Diego is one of our most popular markets for THREAD Show and the perfect place to introduce this new concept,” said THREAD Show spokesperson, Danielle Gano. “Sustainable fashion and the slow, local food movement go hand-in-hand and we’re excited to bring San Diego its first pop-up local shopping mall, complete with a food court!”

Although NOSH is a new concept for THREAD, supporting local business is not. Every THREAD Show hosts independent designers, artists, musicians and now restaurants to display and sell their wares to attendees. This event allows people to shop and purchase clothes, art, house wares, and eco-friendly designs, listen to live bands and DJs, watch fashion shows, receive complimentary styling in the THREAD Style Lounge, recycle their old clothes and sip, eat and mingle to their heart’s content. Attendees can expect high-quality and high-creativity designs in a more comfortable, energized and interactive shopping environment than conventional retail spaces offer. What truly differentiates THREAD designers from their mass-produced competitors is their commitment to the traditional beauty and art of design, with passion and quality that is second to none.

By allowing shoppers to skip the third-party retailer, THREAD gives trend-setters an opportunity to meet the designers face-to-face, feed the local economy, be kind to the environment and ensure products are locally-made and ethically produced. This one-on-one connection also allows designers to get direct feedback from their consumers.

THREAD Show has also introduced a new, lower ticket price this year. Admission is $10 in all cities – or $5 if you RSVP on the THREAD website. The September 26 event will be held at the Horton Plaza Event Space from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. For regular updates, to visit the THREAD blog, RSVP to a show or subscribe to the email newsletter, please visit
