The weekend before last was THREADshow, and I was super excited to attend considering I’d never heard of it before. Pouring in from near and far, shoppers mulled about the Metreon while the DJ’s beats kept spirits high and food stands doled out free snacks. The marketplace, which featured a wide-ranging assortment of independent clothing and jewelry designers, was filled to the brim with wares and apparel for men and women.
Though I snatched a few well-priced garments from the packed racks, I was attracted moreso to the dainty, glamorous, urban, and vintage-sourced jewels that sparkled from afar. Vendors like Linquist by April Hansen, Lola Paige, Aknot Jewerly, Elisa Gonsalves Designs, Rojas, Lauren Harkness, and Frolick Jewelry (among others) stood out against the dozens and dozens who turned up to sell their threads and hand-crafted goods.
While browsing, I asked merchants if I could photograph and feature their designs on my blog. They were happy to share their choice merchandise with Mode and the Like, and I’m thrilled to finally post the many images for all to see.
