Best of DC Fashion Week
We hit the shows and rounded up the best of the runway.
Drapey skirt, drapey shirt. Normally we’d be two thumbs down on this frumpy combination, but Hawaiian Punch hues and over-size neck detailing downplay any lingering traces of old lady. Corjor International full skirt and blouson top.
Pink lips. Teal feathers. Totally fabulous. Somebody please introduce us. Corjor International feathered empire halter gown.
An orange mermaid dress makes a fierce statement against the colorful H Street, Northeast, backdrop. Corjor International satin mermaid gown.
Origami shapes soften up a take-notice color combination. Heydari cowl-neck shift with satin yellow coat.
So funky and futuristic—someone’s clearly caught the Beyoncé bug. Gianni Lilliu tulip skirt with corset blouse.
The drama of a paper-bag leather miniskirt is sure to catch attention. Natalia Sanz zippered blouse and bubble skirt.
A demure shirtdress glammed up with satin trim and leopard accents—here’s a look Washington can get into. Lea Fialho cream collared shirtdress.
Full head coverage may not be necessary for most Washington black-tie events, but it works wonders on the runway. Corjor International color-block satin evening gown.
This outfit screams it-girl party couture, so we were shocked to learn it’s just an old flouncy miniskirt and ruffled top. Model’s own clothes.
Underwear-clad dress attendants. Because no one should have to suffer a long train on her own. Corjor International backless halter gown with rose chiffon train.
We’ve never been a fan of the lingerie look, but these satin dress shorts are a lovely idea. Try them with a full-coverage T-shirt, fitted blazer, and bib necklace for a more wearable option. Lea Fialho satin camisole and lace-trimmed short.
This sassy thigh-high skirt suit was a crowd favorite. Gianni Lilliu bubble miniskirt with matching jacket.
See-through pants! He’s got see-through pants on! We’re not suggesting Washington gentlemen try this out anytime soon, but you’ve got appreciate a designer willing to do something different. Andrew Nowell Menswear.
We love the crisp blue-and-gray combo, and red velvet piping makes everything a thousand times more dapper. Andrew Nowell Menswear.
Corjor International’s men’s swimsuits were nothing special, but that didn’t stop the (mostly female) audience from hollering. Corjor International logo swimming brief.
