DOWNTOWN: Just a friendly reminder that the Downtown Fashion Walk will be premiering tonight from 5:30-10pm, with 30 boutiques and studios open late to host special events. A brief preview: Skin.Graft will be exhibiting a selection of couture dresses from their archives; Fremont and Orthodox are hosting a sample sale; a group of young designers will be holding a sale in the Pacific Electric building alongside a fashion installation from students at the Hollywood Arts organization; while the eccentric Stella Dottir will embark upon a live photoshoot. The action will be taking place between 4th and 7th, Broadway and Main streets. [RackedWire, Previously]

GAP STORES: If you still haven't scored a pair of Gap's new 1969 jeans, you're actually in luck— today, in celebration of its 40th birthday, the retailer is throwing parties at all of its 700+ stores across the country and taking $20 off the new denim line (which already retails for under $70). We highly recommend you stop by, not just because the jeans really are as great as everyone says they are, but also because you'll get an additional 15% off the rest of your purchase when you buy a pair. Plus, local musicians will be playing acoustic sets at each party—The Grove store, for one, is hosting Lenka and Honey Honey between 7pm and 9pm. [RackedWire]
