If the witches of the world were to gather together for a trunk show just in time for Halloween, we’d be not at all surprised to find them gobbling up moody baubles of vintage origins alongside dark and decidedly mysterious dresses ready to come along for their misadventures (who needs the broom and the black cat when you have a fabulous dress?) on what is no doubt for them the very biggest fashion event of the year.
And in that phantasmic spirit, it’s altogether fitting to learn that Gabby Applegate’s L.A.-based apparel label Witches (see images from the line’s March launch party here) will be holding court Wednesday night alongside Portland’s AK Vintage at Bell Jar in the Mission.
Witches and AK Vintage will be casting spells from 6 to 9 p.m. while bevvies abound. Select items from both designers will be on offer for 10 percent off during the event and Bell Jar is offering 25 percent off storewide.
