Haute Stuff

| March 20, 2014 | Parties

DC magazine and the Crystal City BID co-hosted a sartorial soiree as part of the weeklong fashion event that included spring fashions on the runway, local boutique owners showcasing their latest labels and free mini-makeovers courtesy of the region’s best makeup artists.

While the models strutted to the sounds of DJ Neekola, designers like Sophie Blake, Erika Schreiber and Emily Gonzaga of D’Milikah chatted with fashion fans at retail booths around the enormous space. Backstage, stylist Ariella Faith and event producer Maggy Francois got the models runway-ready.

The evening brought together the region’s fashion community to showcase the best in DC design with everything from ballgowns to bathing suits. “There’s really nothing else like this in DC,” noted Maggy Francois, as the models rocked the runway. “Where else can you go to discover upcoming trends, network, shop great boutique deals and watch a runway marathon?” We can’t wait to see next year’s show—and all these styles on the streets of DC this spring and summer! –Photography by Tony Powell
