Fashion's Night Out. An evening where stores keep doors open late, fill with special guests and promotions, and celebrate style for the consumer-oriented gloriousness it truly is. Started last year in New York City with the intent to go international, Anna Wintour's pet project came to Washington in a big way last Friday night. Shoppers, stylists, and even a few Real Housewives headed down to Georgetown for special trunk shows and parties galore, and kept the style-savvy buzz going well into the night. We came, too, and brought the cameras along for the ride. All photographs by Chris Leaman.
