NOVA Fashion Week to debut in Northern Virginia
29
Dec '08
NOVA Fashion Week 2009 will be held at The George Washington Masonic Memorial from Feb 23 - Mar 01, 2009. The earliest fashion week, held in New York City in 1943, was intended to attract attention away from French fashion during World War II, when fashion industry insiders were unable to travel to Paris to see French fashion shows. Fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert organized an event she called "Press Week" to showcase American designers for fashion journalists, whose innovations had been previously neglected. Buyers were not admitted to the shows and instead had to visit designers' showrooms.
