Fashion District is a celebration of style, design and entrepreneurship that aims to put a spotlight on influential and innovative designers and local businesses in DC. This season’s event is on Thursday, April 12th, from 7:30PM to 1AM, and trades in the runway for a showroom experience that allows attendees to watch, touch and feel, talk with the designers themselves and purchase the amazing garments and accessories on display. Designers include Hugh & Crye, Kelly Tang, Artaya, Ginger Root Design, Aliceanna and Accoutre, among others.
For all you night owls, they have also added a third ticket option: After party only. $10. Entry starting at 10:45PM. Below is the quick rundown of what to expect:
