COSTA MESA — After a successful run last year, the THREAD Show returns to The Lab on Sunday with unique, locally made apparel and accessories from independent designers.
This will be the show's second consecutive appearance in Costa Mesa. The show was held at the Orange County Fairgrounds in August 2010.
"We have a lot of love and admiration for the Lab and what they promote," said Danielle Gano, THREAD Show partner, of the show's similar emphasis on promoting local designers and businesses. "We felt that they would be the right home for our Orange County show moving forward."
About 70 designers, including several from Costa Mesa and surrounding cities, will be involved in the one-day pop-up shopping event at the so-called "anti-mall." Among them are Kauzbots and Krochet Kids international in Costa Mesa and Lola Paige from Anaheim.
Also with a vendor space is Laguna Beach jewelry designer Briana Ellison of Briana Rene Designs, who is opening her first flagship location in the OC Mart Mix on June 1.
