Next Week: Fun Fashion Comes to Crystal City


CRYSTAL CITY, VA—Next week, Crystal City is poised to join the ranks of top fashion destinations along with Milan, Paris and New York City. For one week in February, Crystal City will be the center of free fun and fashion during the second annual Crystal Couture. Building on the success of last year’s similar event, The Crystal City Business Improvement District will turn available retail space into an exotic runway, boutique and night club – featuring trunk shows, live theater, DJs, specialty drinks, food, comedians, dancing and more.


Dubbed “Jungle, Jeans, Tats and Tees,” (a.k.a. festive animal/island prints, denim, body art and t-shirts), the free event is designed to bring great retail and runway straight into the hands of attendees - whether seasoned fashionista or eager newbie.


The creativity does not end on the runway – fashion designers of all skill levels may submit proposals for cutstom T-shirt and/or jean designs. All submissions will be presented on the Crystal City BID Web site and through digital projection at the event. Audience members will vote on a winner – on Tuesday night, voting for the T-shirt design will take place and on Wednesday, voting for the jean design will occur. Prizes will be awarded.


Local non-profit groups will also be on site to collect donations of new or gently used clothing and footwear. Go Red for Women will also have a presence at the event.


Move over New York City, here comes Crystal City!


Where: a storefront will be turned into a fashion hotspot at 23rd Street and S. Crystal Drive (across from Jaleo); Arlington, VA


When: February 1st - 6th, 2010 6-10pm every night


Tickets: None! Event is free and open to the public!
