You know what’s music to my ears? “Her shoes feature extra padding in the ball of the foot and sexy yet manageable heel heights.” Comfortable but fashionable shoes—I didn’t know such creations existed. But, praise be, they do. Thursday at the Unsung Designers’ space in Adams Morgan (2412 18th St., NW, in the alley), Gigi Favela will unveil just such shoes at her line debut and trunk show. In addition to the opportunity to shop for that perfect pair of new spring shoes—personally, I’m lusting over these leopard-print beauties—there’ll be music, cocktails, and plenty of mingling. 5–9 pm.
The Gigi Favela trunk show and launch party is just one of our picks for events happening around town this week.
