Crystal Couture returns with big appeal

Crystal Couture returns with big appeal. The annual shopping and runway event hosted by the Crystal City Business Improvement District welcomes 50 retailers and designers, double from years past.

From February 7 – 11, 2012, Crystal Couture takes over the former food court at the Crystal City Shops, transforming the space into a rocking runway, lounge and shopping spot. The one-stop shopping experience allows guests to browse discounted styles on the rack and on the runway as models showcase the latest fashions.

Among the selected vendors offering locally made and eco-friendly products are Aidah Collection, Elizabeth St. John, and the now closed CARBON boutique. Look for me at the CARBON booth where I will be selling our remaining inventory at discounted prices. You will also be able to shop products from some of the CARBON local designers, Kim Schalk, Diamantina handbags, Carmen Eliam jewelry, JEM accessories, Melissa Lew eco-friendly jewelry and YB Green handmade earrings.

In addition to the shopping and runway shows, fashion fans can cool off from the sizzling styles with sips from the bar, free make-up and hair makeovers, chats with wardrobe stylists and music from DJ Neekola.

The weeklong event is free and open to the public.
