Runway Glamour Comes to Crystal City with Crystal Couture: February 1st-5th

Posted in: Upcoming Events

With a dazzling name like Crystal City, this Virginia location evokes images of style and glamour.  Annually, the city comes into its own as the host of Crystal Couture, an exciting free fashion event.  Shopping, free makeovers, a cash bar lounge, nightly fashion shows, and celebrity guests are all part of this five day party.  This year, the Crystal Couture space will be a former food court located in easy walking distance from the Metro.

Crystal Couture is an event in which local designers have an opportunity to showcase their styles.  The best new fashions of the Metro Area are on display on the runway and in makeshift storefronts throughout the event.  See the styles shown at their best advantage with local models and then buy your favorites the same night!  This is a great opportunity to see the cutting edge of fashions in the Nation's Capital and be the first of your friends to wear these exciting styles.

Crystal Couture is easy on the wallet!  Free makeovers will be offered by hair and makeup specialists throughout the event.  Admission to the event is free and fashions are available at a wide range of prices.  Styles are varied as well with elegant bridal gowns, printed t-shirts, and high glamor runway ensembles available for viewing and purchase.  For those who just want to have a look at the best styles of the season, this is window shopping at its best!

DJ's, a cash bar, and celebrity guests will keep the party lively with new entertainment each night.  This is the first year in which Crystal Couture will be featuring local celebrities as emcees.  Among the special guests are Bianca Chardei of the reality TV show America's Next Top Model, local celebrity art collector and promoter Philippa Hughes of The Pink Line Project, Karen Sommer Shallet of DC Magazine, and Sarah Fraser of Hot 99.5.
