Oakland’s Jack London Square will be extra foxy this weekend, thanks to the all-day Urban Couture Fashion Art Expo taking place on Saturday.

By day, a free public art festival combines community art exhibits, fashion workshops, live music, 40+ art and fashion vendors and a daytime fashion presentation from Debbie Nghiem and Daniele Pettee. By night, the focus on fashion sharpens with a runway show featuring Bay Area talents Alexandria von Bromssen, Rag Doll Design, Skylier Wear, Arcega Design Studio, Richochet and Swati/Sans Paroles. After the show, funk band Monophonics closes out the evening with its groove-worthy sounds.

The event is free to attend from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets for the evening 21+ fashion show are $10.

SWAP Not Shop

Okay, clearly we love to shop. But we’re also down to swap. A great place to do just that this weekend? Swap! Not Shop!, an Oakland event that promises an outpouring of clothing, accessories and household items for the taking when you bring a bag of items to donate. Admission is $5.

More fun fashion events await on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar…..
