Crystal Couture Announces 2-Week Fashion Event Schedule
Crystal City (Arlington, VA) – The Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) today unveiled a diverse and lively event schedule for Crystal Couture, a fortnight of fun and fashion in the heart of Crystal City February 13-28.
The BID is partnering with fashion maven Katherine Glorioso of Gossip on 23rd, Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group, and DC Modern Luxury to stage two style-filled weeks of sample sales, runway and trunk shows from designers, local boutiques, and area salons.
“Fashion is for everyone, and we’re going to have lots of it – from your morning jog to your night on the town,” said Angela Fox, President/CEO of the Crystal City BID. “If you wear clothes, there is no reason you shouldn’t be in Crystal City in February.”
