It is indeed a fact that Washington, DC is the Nation’s Capital, but the best kept secret is that the city has also emerged as a fashion capital! Just in time for the International Fashion Weeks, Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel and Fashion Group International® of Greater Washington, DC have collaborated to present SHOP THE CAPITAL – a month long celebration of local design talent that will allow hotel guests and locals to celebrate the new fashion identity of DC, shop the collections of local designers and mingle with the fashion community.
SHOP THE CAPITAL is an extension of the Fashion Group International of Greater Washington, DC’s Rising Star Awards that took place in March of this year. Washington’s fashionable people showed up to celebrate DC’s most notable FGI DC rising stars in the categories of Women’s Ready-to-Wear, Men’s Ready-to-Wear, Fine Jewelry and Accessories, Beauty Entrepreneur, Fashion Photography, Home and Interior Design, Media, and Fashion Stylist.
Wednesdays from 6pm-9pm in September, FGI DC and Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel will celebrate these rising stars with special pop-up shops to showcase their Fall 2014 collections. Guests will enjoy the cool beats from house DJ Donald Syriani while tasting the haute cocktails.
