The Crystal Couture Show & Sale is a local week-long fashion festival held in Crystal City, VA. In its 5th year of existence the festival is a celebration of local independent boutiques, designers, artisans, craftsmen and women from the DC region with over 40 participating vendors. This year the show will be held in a vacant corporate office building on the 12th floor overlooking DC from the Potomac River.
IG has been given the privelage of co-hosting one of the night of the festival. On Wed, Feb 6th we will be co-hosting with the lovely Ashley Boalch, Miss DC 2011. We are proud to be outfitted for the show by our friends and colleagues at Michael Andrews Bespoke and VM Clothiers. As a co-host we will also have our own booth space in which we will host two of our favorite local brands Sterling & Burke and Sette Neckwear. If you read this blog you're familiar with our work with Sette.
Sterling & Burke is a new client of ours and this is our first event together. Sterling & Burke is an american owned company offering high quality English-made business, luggage, accessories lifestyle accoutrements from Globe Trotter, Swaine Adney Brigg, JW Hulme, Benson & Clegg, Penhaligon's fragrances, and a favorite of ours; HYPE Luggage. This will be one of the first public events for S&B and Sette to display their wares. All product will be for sale during and after the show with a special IG purchase code. We will be on hand to help customers pick and choose the best options for themselves, a friend, or a significant other. The event is open and free to public. We look forward to seeing you there.
