Please note: This event has already occurred.
In 2009, in the depths of the recession, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and fashion designer Diane Von Furstenburg created this shopping extravaganza to encourage fashionistas to get out on the town. Four years later, their event has gone global. Local festivities this year have hundreds of stores, restaurants and salons offering deals, specialty cocktails, prizes and more. The festivities are split between Georgetown and Alexandria: In Georgetown, look out for a pop-up disco at the PNC Bank lot and a BYT-sponsored party with ESL Music and Fatback DJs spinning on the Dean & DeLuca patio lounge. In Alexandria, expect a fashion show at the Torpedo Factory Art Center and a fashion block party in Del Ray.
