Add another layer onto your scheduling options for Design Week (Oct 9-3) and FASHIONxt (Oct 10-13): The purveyors of exciting shoes and makers of parties over at Solestruck are joining the flurry of design-related activity with "No Sleep Til...," a three-day series of carousal, fashion, and music, capped off with a mother of a sample sale, set for Oct 11-14.
Thing will start off early on Thursday with "No Sleep Til... Hard to Swallow," a Design Week reception hosted at the flagship store (designed by Skylab Architecture) from noon-3 pm, with cocktails for all the day-drinkers in the house. Saturday's "No Sleep Til... Deja Vu" will be a blowout: It's a fashion and music presentation featuring Hello Eliza, Esque by Leslie Pennel, Degen, Stolen Girlfriends Club, and Bess, and music from DJ Tah Rei, White Rainbow, and Yacht. It'll go down at The Spot (2401 N. Harding), with doors at 6 and presentations starting at 7 (I don't know all the nitty gritties, but don't expect a traditional runway show).
And, then, on Sunday, we have "No Sleep Til... The Shit Show," Solestruck's first-ever sample sale, with all shoes priced between $20-100! Doors at the store will open at noon, and it will no doubt be a madhouse, so go early and be nice! All of this is in celebration of the one-year anniversary of the flagship store, so don't forget to high five 'em when you see 'em.
