ReadysetDC is proud to announce their fifth Fashion District on Thursday, April 12th, from 7:30 to 11pm, promoting talented local designers and supporting the DC creative economy. Elevating the concept to a full on fashion experience, ReadysetDC is scraping the tired old runway, and in its place, creating an innovative showroom experience. Attendees will be able to watch, touch and feel, talk with the designers themselves and purchase the amazing garments and accessories on display. Fashion District will feature unique stage presentations throughout the night, as well as a showroom experience with this year’s designers which include Hugh & Crye, Kelly Tang, Artaya, Ginger Root Design, Kolton J, Aliceanna and Accoutre, among others.
For the first time, ReadysetDC is offering an Early Access ticket, which will grant attendees access into the space ahead of the crowds from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. For $40, attendees can shop early and enjoy a complimentary Fashion District Cocktail and complimentary plates presented by Café Saint Ex, The Queen Vic, Vinoteca, Aaron Silverman and Matchbox! Early Access is limited to only 150 tickets. General admission is $30, and comes with a complimentary Fashion District Cocktail. Doors open at 7:30pm for General Admission. Fashion District will have a full cash/credit bar.
DJ sets by:
DJ Inda Nile (Anthology of Booty, OTTOMANIA)
The Powerhouse is a beautiful, three level, 7,500 square foot maze of a warehouse along the C&O Canal, right over the footbridge from Dean & Deluca.
ReadysetDC is thrilled to have Uber as an event sponsor. The premier car service will provide rides in style to and from Fashion District by using an exclusive ReadysetDC Fashion District promotion code for a discount. Uber riders will have access to an exclusive red carpet entrance, complete with paparazzi—an updated version of the photo booth. Riders will also receive a complimentary Uber Cocktail, with presentation of receipt.
The Powerhouse is being provided by Popularise.com, a new start-up crowdsourcing platform that allows people to get involved in real estate development in their city. Popularise will be launching The Powerhouse as its next project, and has partnered with ReadysetDC, The Dunes and VerdeHouse to showcase the unique space and its potential.
