The Women's Committee for the National Symphony Orchestra is holding its annual design event this week. "Beyond Dragons: An East-West Fusion of Interior Design" features Asian-inspired spaces and room vignettes created by many of the area's top young designers.

The five-day event, which runs through Sunday at the Woman's Club of Chevy Chase (7931 Connecticut Ave. in Maryland), also includes cultural presentations, boutique shopping and seminars on entertaining and decorating.

Proceeds will benefit the NSO's education programs.
