Crystal Couture Schedule and Details

Now in its third year, Crystal Couture can pretty safely be called Arlington’s premiere annual fashion event. (Due partially to a lack of competition for the title.)

Couture will be held from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. every night from Feb. 1 to 5. Organizers released additional details today about the event’s schedule and the designers and boutiques that will be participating (see below).

In keeping with Crystal City’s use of vacant space as an event venue, Couture is relocating this year from an formerly unleased retail space (which is now a Buffalo Wild Wings) to the abandoned Crystal City Food Court at 1750 Crystal Drive.

  • February 1 – Host, Philippa Hughes, Pinkline Project – T-Shirt Design Contest
  • February 2 – Host, Bianca Chardei, America’s Next Top Model Contestant
  • February 3 – Host, Karen Sommer Shallett, DC Modern Luxury
