DC Fashion Week: French Flair Flowed

DC Fashion Week, Sept. 29-Oct.1, celebrated in French Style.

In its 20th iteration and enjoying the proud sponsorship of Air France, the show continues to gain prominence outside the primary U.S. Fashion Weeks of New York and Los Angeles, as well as Miami Swim.

Air France’s Brand Marketing Director Rodger DePasca was enthusiastic about this year’s partnership due to the importance of Washington, D.C. as the number-4 market in the United States for the airline and its own appreciation of style and functional elegance as demonstrated in staff uniforms throughout the company.

The sponsorship provided a Champagne Lounge for VIP Guests, a fashionable floral arch integrated into the runway and photo ops, plus a nightly raffle for 2 complimentary round-trip business class tickets à Paris.

The performance consisted of the Annual Trifecta of highly attended runway shows. The Emerging Designers Showcase lead the series with a casual-chic approach to prêt-à-porter and streetwear featuring a high-concentration of regional brands.

The Menswear Collections followed with an exclusive mix of more advanced brands evoking a big city vibe. The International Showcase was comprised of 12 globally inspired capsule collections.

Exhibiting designers presented an array of deconstructed After Five looks, well-tailored evening wear and open integrated culturally relevant moods from the homelands of Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Morocco.

Founder of DC Fashion Week, Ean Williams, closed the show with his couture collection Corjor international. The dazzling and dramatic evening wear and colorful tulle capes provided a truly grand finale to embody the theme of French Flair.
