Forget the Amtrak ride. The W Washington DC is bringing New York Fashion Week to you in February. The oh-so stylish hotel just released news that they'll be throwing a Fashion Week bash in partnership with Bloomingdale's, as part of the W Washington DC SIP series. Here's what's happening at the massive four-night event: live streaming of Fashion Week shows, fashion presentations and modeling via Bloomingdale's, beauty stations via Nars Cosmetics, Nectar Skin Bar and Ipsa for Hair, cocktail specials, and more.
The event is open to the public for everyone 21 and older. Want in for the best fashion happy hours ever? RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cameras, tweeting, and blogging are encouraged, of course. If this is anything like the W's Man Repeller event this fall, it's going to be a scene. Full schedule of runway shows is as follows:
Thursday, February 6, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.: Diane Von Furstenberg featuring a Nectar Skin Bar Eyelash Bar, Nars Cosmetics beauty stations, and an Ipsa for Hair by Nectar Primping Bar
