D.C. Fashion Week to Bring Runway Shows, Events
– September 6, 2013 3:28 pm
If you speak the language of Haute Couture, more than likely you are well versed in keyhole necklines and silhouettes. You’re probably also familiar with the upcoming D.C. Fashion Week, which will surely fulfill your craving for high fashion.
The weeklong event launching on September 21-28, will exhibit emerging and seasoned designers that highlight clothing, merchandising and modeling. Several runway fashion shows will stretch across the City at multiple venues with designers showcasing their Fall Collection and featuring trends in sweaters, skirts, bag essentials, and formal wear.
While most attribute fashion to the command center of New York City, the founder and organizer of DC Fashion Week, Ean Williams, has put the spotlight on the heart and style of Washingtonians. At first glance one might not think of the area as having vibrant colors, exotic fabrics, and textiles, yet Washington definitely represent the spirit of diversity.
Now, in its 10th year, the event has become a staple in the city, as it continues to achieve its mission to enhance the visibility of the nation’s capital as the center of international fashion.
So, get ready to put your best-dressed, stiletto heel wearing, and swanky conversation forward and join the world of runway fashion.
