For those who love fashion, and who among us doesn’t, the Thread show May 30-31 is a must-see event.
The show, which considers itself the country's top independent fashion design and art shopping event, returns to its original host site Wonderhaus Bakery (the old Wonderbread Bakery in East Village). For those Thread veterans who loved the single day event, you'll be excited to know it will cover two days this year. An entire weekend of shopping!
Here's the show schedule, released just this Wednesday.
This year, organizers are offering a style section where you can get a new look from Hair by William. To complement the new style, there will be makeup artists there as well. Then you can have your portrait captured by Ali Vega Productions. Call ahead because they’re taking appointments – no walk-ins for this feature.
Expect a bunch of free for your $10 admission (cash only!) – free tote bag, free mags, free parking and free design tips at almost every booth.
Bring along one bag of clean clothes in great condition and get into to THREAD for $2 less. The clothes will be donated to 5 charities to support less fortunate teenagers and children.
