Crystal City Couture

Maybe I'm a little late on the DC fashion scene, but did you know there was a free fashion show every year in Crystal City, VA? When Sarah Gingold (owner, Think Outside the Store) told me about Crystal City Couture, I had no idea what to expect. Turns out, its a 3-4 day event, trunk sale, fashion show, henna party, jewelry show all wrapped into one.

Vintage jewels from Thembe Fashions ~ I scored a very cool 70's shirt and a hammered wire necklace!

Amazing handmade gemstone items, water buffalo horn cuffs and sparkle bangles from Nakia Fisher at Cynirje.

Fellow fabric flower designer Aidah Fontenot with her handmade, hand-painted collection "Aidah". Her flower-making seeks to help empower women and build self-confidence. A portion of her sales are donated to local chairities.

See you next year!
