W Seattle Hotel is making midweek more worthwhile with a series of popup shops featuring local boutiques and designers. The Wednesday events are free, lasting from 5 to 7 on scheduled evenings. There will of course be cocktails.

Here's the lineup:

September 11: The style experts at Mario's bring in a selection of men's and women's denim from popular brands 7 For All Mankind and AG Adriano Goldschmeid. Here's your chance to score some swag and take advantage of special discounts. (See the flyer above.)

October 9: Check out knitwear designer Paychi Karen Guh's (she's popping up everywhere lately) cozy fall collection and spring samples at the downtown hotel just two weeks after the Independent Designer Runway competition.

October 23: Mario's is back. This time with goods from Vince, Paige, Hudson, and 3x1 Denim.

November 13: Last year's IDRS winner Carole McClellan features her latest repurposed fur accessories and new leather collection, Sovereign. The ready-to-wear line of leggings, blazers, moto jackets, and more for men and women is on our list for fall, and we can't wait to see McClellan's preview sketches come to life.
