Thread Show

Five years ago, California-based British siblings Alex and Lara Matthews came up with something straight out of my fantasies—a gathering of local independent fashion designers selling their wares at deeply discounted prices. Wow, I guess dreams really can come true! The traveling Thread Show visits Seattle, featuring local labels like Prairie Underground, Spun, and Artifakt. These and other booths and displays will be accompanied by DJs, art installations, and cocktails. For the latter, we recommend the VIP ticket, which includes free booze, a swag bag, and early admission. Though be warned: Nothing loosens up the pocketbook like a couple of martinis. Fisher Pavilion, Seattle Center, $10–$25. Noon–5 p.m. SUZIE RUGH
