The DowntownDC Business Improvement District is producing the inaugural District of Fashion runway show on September 5, 2018 as a kickoff to NYFW. We are seeking designers in the DC Metro area to showcase S/S 2019 Collections. The District of Fashion will be a semiannual event taking place in February and September showcasing collections on par and in line with industry standard seasonal collections.
Our mission is to establish Washington, DC as a thriving fashion capital and to create awareness about the local, and innovative fashion community that currently exists in DC. The District of Fashion will create a platform for designers, buyers, fashion press, stylists, and other fashion creatives to conduct industry standard business in DC. The District of Fashion runway show aims to be a high-end production comparable to those in thriving fashion industry destinations such as NY, Milan, L.A. and Miami.
We welcome professional and emerging designers to apply.
