The DowntownDC Business Improvement District is producing its fourth District of Fashion event Spring of 2020 post NYFW. We are seeking designers in the DC Metro area to showcase Fall/Winter 2020 Collections with a focus on avant-garde and couture. The next District of Fashion event will feature 4 designers in a showcase style event. The District of Fashion showcases collections on par and in line with industry standard seasonal collections.
The District of Fashion Runway Show is DowntownDC’s premier fashion event. It serves as a unique platform for designers, buyers, fashion press, stylists, and other fashion creatives to con- duct world-class business in Washington, DC. District of Fashion events are anchored by some of the “big 4” fashion capitals’ events such as New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. Locally, we are happy to align with the National Cherry Blossom Festival. The DowntownDC Business Improvement Corporation (BID) is working to establish the District as a thriving fashion capital and to create awareness about DC’s local, innovative and inclusive fashion industry. The event seeks to solidify DC’s status alongside thriving industry destinations such as New York, L.A, Paris and Milan.
We welcome professional and emerging designers to apply that live in or are from DC/MD/VA.
