Area hipsters are making plans now to attend the first-ever Thread Show in Orange County on Sunday. Thread is a juried shopping event that tours the country showcasing 100 emerging clothing designers and artists, along with offering free live music, fashion shows, art, food and entertainment.
The touring show, already popular in large cities nationwide for its direct access to independent designers, also has added a home section to its offerings. Another popular aspect is its Swap Lounge, where attendees can trade clothing and accessories.
The Daily Pilot spoke with seven up-and-coming designers who will offer their wares this weekend at Thread.
DP: What made you choose to participate in Thread OC?
Tyson Smith, Maiden Voyage Clothing: Having heard of the Thread Show in the past, and this being its first time in the O.C., we thought it would be a good way to reach the O.C. market.
