Yesterday, SoulCycle West End hosted FGIDC members and our friends for an amazing Cardio Party! THANK YOU SOULCYCLE! We were treated to an intense sweat session that got us motivated and ready for the Summer. Our instructor Abby was the best and we couldn’t have thought of a better way to kick off the season. Check out #FGIDCSweat on Instagram to see photos!

Fashion Networking at Penthouse Pool Club

As the rain passed by and the clouds cleared, the Penthouse Pool Club was set for our night of Summer Cocktails & Conversations.  Both FGIDC Members and Non-Members gathered to network. 
We were happy to see new faces and connect with guests on their industry and business goals.  One new guest mentioned, “I’m just starting my business and I came here tonight to meet new, cool people.”  
The Stiletto, our custom cocktail of the night, filled glasses across the sky-high rooftop setting.  From cabana to cabana, fashion industry professionals conversed with excitement over the chic venue and their upcoming projects.  A special thank you to all of the guests who came out for Summer Cocktails & Conversations.  We look forward to connecting more and sharing in business progress throughout the year.

#FGIDCMemberNotice: DC Screening of “Dior & I”

Hello FGIDCers,
We have been invited to the special DC screening of “Dior and I”  May 1 at Landmark E Street Cinema.
If you are interested, you can get your tickets here – http://www.landmarktheatres.com/washington-d-c/e-street-cinema/film-info/dior-and-i

Raf Simons, Marion Cotillard, Anna Wintour, Sidney Toledano, Pieter Mulier
Frédéric Tcheng

In 2012, legendary French fashion house Christian Dior Couture announced the appointment of designer Raf Simons as its head Creative Director. Diorand I takes a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the high stakes, high tension makings of Simons’ debut haute couture collection and how it returned to the origins of the house of Dior. The film also takes an intimate, cinema vérité-style glimpse at the inner workings of the Dior atelier, capturing the entire eight-week process up until the premiere of Simons’ collection. Some of the atelier workers—the heart and soul of the fashion industry—have sewed forDior for decades and do so with an unbridled passion. Together, they form a support system for Simons and help to create his masterpiece collection, with every line they sketch and bead they sew. A whirlwind of creativity, stress, determination and triumph, Dior and I marks the third fashion film for writer/director Frédéric Tcheng, who previously co-wrote and co-directed Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and co-produced Valentino: The Last Emperor. (Partially subtitled)
