About the event
"My Dreams Are Not My Own”
The 2018 Fashion Showcase is doing it differently than past years. 2018 brings together seven emerging designers in the DMV area to celebrate the ingenuity, collaboration and unity among us as artists designing the next generation of men’s and women’s fashion.
Recognizing, as we do, that every artist’s inspiration derives from someone, somewhere, some places and some experiences larger than ourselves, we dedicate this year’s Showcase to those persons who sparked the fuse which set on fire our ideas, our creativity and our dreams.
To those family and friends who in no small measure are responsible for what we do and continually strive to become, we dedicate year’s Showcase... because our dreams are not our own.
