Get in the Loop

We’ve noticed an increasing number of fabulous ladies’-night-out events taking place around town, and Miami’s men are getting jealous. Why should women be the only ones feted with complimentary cocktails and sample-filled gift bags at these after-work events? Here’s why: Most are totally about shopping. We’ve whizzed through them all — Gen Art, Shecky’s, Splurge — and noticed that the lack of dudes can be directly correlated to the degree of dude-related entertainment. More specifically: If there are hot chicks sashaying down a runway in next to nothing, male significant others won’t mind tagging along. And while they’re distracted staring at professional catwalkers, you can snag what you’ve been aching for — that hot new purse from the fresh local designer. So in that spirit, we offer up an event that will appeal to both sexes.

Unzipped, which Miami New Times debuted this past August, will pair with Thread, which has been an annual treat for West Coast fashionistas since 2003. This year’s shopping extravaganza promises 100 designers offering discounts as steep as 80 percent off. You can get your shop on from 4 to 8 p.m. Then the fun kicks into high gear with Unzipped, a fashion show featuring hot clothes by acclaimed local fashion innovators KRELwear, Art of Shade, Nazly Villamizar, Lorie Lester Miami, and Rucht D’Oleo. The cocktails flow at 4 p.m., the runway show takes over at 9, and when that’s done, we all party. Um, will there be gift bags? Yes, honey — and they’ll be fabulous. Score! It’s going down at Soho Studios.
