    Britex Fabrics presents: PROJKT Maiden Lane

    A Runway Showcase Featuring Four Designers
    from Project Runway and Under the Gunn

     

    Friday, Sept. 23 2016 / 7:00– 9:30pm  / Union Square, SF / Historic Maiden Lane is about to be transformed into a runway, as Britex Fabrics presents PROJKT Maiden Lane–featuring new fall designs from Emily Payne, Kini Zamora and Richard Hallmarq (All Three From Project Runway) and Rey Ortiz (From Under the Gunn), along with new work and collaborations with local artists Michael Covington and L.V.M.

    Local designer/Britex Fabrics alum/Project Runway All Stars favorite Emily Payne explains, "I realized how many pieces in my collections have always been made with fabrics from Britex, and that it just makes sense to collaborate on a show. Both Richard and I have done draping workshops at Britex before, but this event is just huge." Britex Fabrics has a long history of supporting local designers, showcasing their work in window displays and on social media, and even sponsoring the Academy of Art's Britex Fabrics Project collection in 2009 (which previewed at Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week). "Fabrics make fashion–literally," says Britex Fabrics owner Sharman Spector, "You can't have one without the other. It's wonderful to see what designers like Emily do with our fabrics, and we think it's incredibly important to support that kind of creativity."

    Attendees of PROJKT Maiden Lane will enjoy free giveaways and pop-up shops with Britex Fabrics, Leathertongue & Devon Rose designed by Emily Payne, Goorin Brothers Hats, Threads Magazine, Myla’Cor Martinis, Caffe’ Central and more.

    Doors for the Myla’Cor Martini Bar inside Britex Fabrics to open at 6:15pm. Runway show at 7:00pm.

    Britex Fabrics offers a variety of workshops, online tutorials, community partnerships and store tours. A San Francisco landmark since 1952, Britex is four floors of fabulousfeaturing high quality fashion and furnishing fabrics along with notions, trims and 22,000 styles of buttons.
