The Crystal Couture fashion show and boutique sale is a one-of-a-kind event that can only be found in Crystal City.
This show annually transforms an underused or empty area into a high-end fashion event bringing dozens of area boutiques and designers under one roof. The combined fashion show and pop-up shop experience invites shopaholics, browsers, and fashion mavens alike to enjoy the professionally choreographed runway fashion shows, boutique trunk sales at steep discounts, free 5-minute hair and facial makeovers, stylist consultations, and a bar with a nightclub atmosphere. Accessible both in the price of admission (FREE) and the merchandise pricing, Crystal Couture sets the bar for fashion in the DC area.
This year Evelyn Brooks Designs came back and it was an awesome experience, but it was even nicer because I was able to see some old time friends that I don’t get to see as often as I would like to, like Maggy Francois (producer of the show), designers Kenny Kass, Afua Sam, Emily Gonzaga (Milik’a) and reknown photographers like Jerald Council, Phil Kogan and many more who came to be part of Crystal Couture 2015.
Our wonderful team included models from DC International Models (Gaby Pool and Milvia Gomez) as well as Kimberly Coral who was doing a great work promoting Evelyn Brooks Designs at our booth.
What was I doing I was backstage helping Afua Sam of Studio D’ Maxi get the models ready for her segment and she would accessorize them with Evelyn Brooks jewelry.
If you missed it here is a little recap. Hope to see you again in 2016!
Wish you a happy weekend!
