Washingtonian celebrated our 2023 Style Setters in Style!

2023 Style Setters: Carla Sanchez, Kimberly Russo, Libby Rasmussen, Eugene Daniels, Sharon Yang

On Thursday, October 19th DC’s fashion trendsetters celebrated Washingtonian’s 2023 Style Setters with a private cocktail reception. The event took place at the beautiful Conrad Washington, DC hotel. The Conrad’s catering team served up delicious hors d’oeuvres to guests throughout the night and tasty drinks from the bars, including Wild Gardenia, the event sponsor’s,  featured cocktail the “Gardenia Spritz.” 

To commemorate the evening’s stylish looks, Booth-o-Rama brought engaging photo opportunities and Kejijo LLC drew up fun caricatures for attendees. Our 2023 Style Setters, who enjoyed the evening with family and friends, were presented with remarks from Washingtonian’s Fashion and Wedding editor Amy Moeller and given a custom framed image from their Washingtonian photoshoot. 

Thank you to our sponsor Wild Gardenia for making this event possible.

Thank you to our venue and catering partner, Conrad Washington, DC, and to our vendors: Booth-O-Rama, Kejijo LLC, Lee’s Flower Shop, and Mixing Maryland.
