In a few days, DC Fashion Week kicks off season seventeen, making the nation’s capital a center of a different kind of “global warming”.  Designers from across the world will showcase the hottest trends with over seven days of events.  This fall welcomes new comers Aphropolitan, Jessiica Howell Fashions, Slanovskyi Presented by Kate Linde Bridal, Sveltlana Horvat, Violet Fernandes, and Heritage Collection.  They will be joined by DC Fashion Week veterans Heydari, Corjor International, Andrew Nowell, Anjoreen, House of Jola, Firefly Designs Africa * Asia, and Designersberg. 

Together the week promises to be full of fashionably diverse collections highlighting the cultural convergence DC Fashion Week audiences have come to expect and enjoy.  

Be sure to check out the preview of what’s to come on Saturday, September 15th at the H Street Festival, an annual street fair showcasing the vibrant H Street NE corridor.  For several years now, this event has featured sizzling samples from designers presenting in the week to follow.   
Seventeen starts green! The official kick-off event is Monday, September 17th at the IFC (a World Bank Member).  Once again DC Fashion Week (DCFW) partners with Inova Health System’s Going Green Initiative to feature the latest in eco fashion and bring together both established designers and emerging talents.

The middle of the week will mix it up as DC Fashion Week has joined over 40 organizations in the new Art4All DC collaborative effort to highlight music, theater, dance, fine arts, fashion and other forms of artistic expressions found across each quadrant of DC during September and October.  Be sure to stay tuned for DC Fashion Week in the Streets on September 19th…What isn’t new is the traditional Fashion Industry Networking Party this season at Dirty Bar in Dupont Circle.  It is widely touted as the largest gathering of area fashionistas, including designers, models, photographers, life style bloggers, media, retail, agencies, and more!   Catch the featured fashion accessory and swimsuit show while you network!
