Power and fashion are two words easily bandied around about Georgetown, but this week to two will converge when ReadySetDC takes over the Georgetown Powerhouse for a fashion showroom. The event will feature local designers and fashion experts, including Georgetown's own Hugh & Crye (located on O Street).
"Attendees will be able to watch, touch and feel, talk with the designers themselves and purchase the amazing garments and accessories on display," according to a press release about the event.
The Powerhouse was selected as this year's venue as part of the Popularise.com initiative, which pairs empty retail with crowdsourced ideas for creative uses.
Designers include: Hugh & Crye, Kelly Tang, Artaya, Ginger Root Design, Kolton J., Aliceanna and Accoutre, among others.
The event will feature a DJ and cocktails.
