Georgetown Fashion Show
Lights, Cameras, and FASHION! Oh, and did we mention Yachts?
This year’s 6th edition Georgetown Fashion show was an evening of glamorous style and surroundings. Designers from all over the world showcased their Fall and Spring 2019 collections on the beautiful Georgetown Waterfront in Washington D.C. Featured designers include: Anca Designs, A Concept by Afu Sam, D’Milikah Designs, and Tim Bradley Collection. Nick’s Riverside Grill, one of the supporting sponsors, hosted the event on their outside patio where fashionable spectators, photographers and a few celebrities filled the area to enjoy the show.
The crowd was in awe as the first model hit the runway steps. When everyone began to record and take pictures of the gorgeous models, all one could hear was the word “WOW!” Needless to say, the outfits and models were jaw dropping. Take a look for yourself!
Special celebrity hosts of the evening, Ashley Karina-Miss Earth United States 2017, kept the crowd’s attention throughout the show. Alongside Ms. Karina was Netflix ‘House of Cards’ actor Lamont Easter, who can also be seen in Showtime’s Homeland, HBO’s VEEP, and CBS’s Madam Secretary. A special performance by international multi-genre and African born artist, Ya Minko, had the crowd dancing in their seats as models worked the patio. “I really enjoyed the energy at this event because everyone came out here and gave their best,” Minko stated at the post yacht
Emily Gonzaga, designer and founder of Alexandria Virginia based swimwear brand D’Milikah produced this year’s show. Following the show was a yacht after party where participants including models, designers, celebrities, photographers and spectators could be found mixing, mingling, and admiring. We spoke with Jamaal Ashour, one of the show’s organizers, about the inspiration behind the show. Ashour expressed that “it was all about business, international models and designers making the DMV area more artsy.” “We wanted to focus more on arts and fashion because we don't see that much in DC. We want to flavor it more, which was the main goal of the show,” he concluded.
Overall, the 2018 Georgetown fashion show was an unforgettable experience. Fashion, art, culture and class were emphasized and very much appreciated, especially for DMV natives. We are looking forward to next year’s inaugural show and ensure it will be nothing less than fabulous…just like this year!
