Fall Fashion Live at CityCenterDC and Fig & Olive!

On Tuesday, October 7, 2015, the Fashion Group International® of Greater Washington, DC, Inc hosted our bi-annual trend presentation hosted by CityCenterDC and Fig & Olive. With over 50 of DC’s style set present, we screened a video presentation of the major trends from all 4 fashion weeks around the world and then followed it up with a live fashion presentation of the trends from CityCenterDC retailers – Zadig & Voltaire, Canali, Allen Edmonds, Morgenthal Frederics, Paul Stuart, Vince.

Our industry style experts (and FGIDC members!) Robin Fisher of Polished Image & Style, Alton Barber of Best Dressed Man On The Planet, Marissa Schneider of Gilt City DC, and James Cornwell Celebrity Stylist and Co-Owner of Iva Bella Salon walked the attendees through the trends.

The ambiance in the White Room at Fig & Olive was beautiful, ethereal, and inviting. Guests were served cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and the models, sponsored by T.H.E. Artist Agency, were stunning in their presentation of the looks. The team at Iva Bella Salon sponsored the hair and makeup and did a fabulous job highlighting the beauty trends of the season.
