Crystal City to Show Its Fashionable Side… In a Food Court?

Crystal Couture is back for “five nights of fabulous fashion, fun and festivities” in Crystal City.

Now in its third year, the event will feature “runway shows, local DJs, open bar, free snacks, free makeovers from makeup artists and hair stylists – and more,” according to organizers.

In a big change, however, Couture will be changing locations — from a formerly vacant storefront, now occupied by Buffalo Wild Wings, to the abandoned food court at 1750 Crystal Drive.

Wait, an abandoned food court?

Actually, it’s all in keeping with Crystal City BID’s habit of transforming vacant spaces into venues for hip events. The Crystal City Shops food court will be “totally transformed into a rocking runway space with great lighting, a lounge and more than 20 fabulous fashion boutiques,” say organizers.

Crystal Couture will be held from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. every night from Feb. 1-5.

The kick-off event on Feb. 1 will feature a T-shirt design contest (applications are currently being accepted). The Feb. 4 event will be held in honor of National Wear Red Day and will be hosted by HOT 99.5 DJ Sarah Fraser
