This Thursday, Georgetown will play host to a bevy of stylish (and thirsty) fashionistas ready to shop, snack, and dance til they drop. Fashion’s Night Out is an annual and international event in which stores band together to stay open later, offer better deals, and provide all manner of ways for customers to spend their hard-earned cash.
In a city like DC, having an extra reason to dress up can be fun. Of course, “dress up” in this case has nothing to do with appropriate office wear, it’s all about what will look impressive and make the wearer feel foxy on Thursday night. When else does DC feel foxy?
Take a look at the sponsors and partners for Thursday night. We will have Capitol Pedicabs to take our high-heeled selves from venue to venue. Or if a young person with stupendous calves isn’t available, Uber will be there to ferry you around in luxe black town cars. Brightest Young Things and vitaminwater will promote separate events as sponsors. Fatback DJs will spin at the Dean and Deluca patio, where Heineken and Tanqueray will be freely poured (yes, free, though the sips are apt to be tiny). Mike Isabella’s Bandolero will serve signature cocktails with fashion-y names. All in the name of American buying power.
Georgetown is the hub for the night, with event going on farther afield in Tyson’s Corner and Alexandria. Though lots of excitement will be piped in for Thursday evening, the stores themselves will also be performing at peak. Kiehl’s will be giving free facials and Alchemie Forever will be available for free makeovers. A hundred plus other events are going on, so do yourselves and DC a favor: go out and shop.
See the sights, talk to some new people. And don’t forget your camera. DC Style Is Real will be on site on Thursday evening to take notes and participate in the fun. Beginning and ending the night at Hela Spa, we will be chatting, observing and tweeting our response to this stylish affair. Stay tuned!
