Who says fashion events only happen in New York or Europe? The embassies located in Washington, D.C., have selected designers to represent their country and are sponsoring them to participate in DC Fashion WeekÂs third apparel trade show on September 17, 2005. This biannual event will take place at the French Embassy. Thus far, embassies of Israel, Trinidad and Tobago, Belgium, and New Zealand have all confirmed their participation, as well as designers from New York and the local metropolitan area of Washington, D.C.
ÂThe friendship between the nations of the world is a treasure and DC Fashion Week provides an atmosphere where all people can celebrate the universality of fashion. DC Fashion Week is an exciting event where the fashion culture of a particular nation is exhibited along with that of other nations, in a festive and vibrant way,Â states DC Fashion Week executive director Ean Williams. ÂWe are inviting all embassies to participate in this groundbreaking event, a truly international tradeshow of apparel, design and fashion with an emerging designer from their home country.Â
A partnership of independent fashion designers, producers and models, DC Fashion Week was created to increase economic development in the area of fashion design, clothing merchandising and modeling, and to enhance the visibility of the nationÂs capital as a center of international fashion. All of the weekÂs scheduled events are open to the public, but there is a $50 admission charge to the ÂExtravaganceÂ Couture Show, which will be held Saturday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. at the French Embassy, 4101 Reservoir Road, NW, Washington DC 20007.
