Music and fashion go together like love and marriage, they are inseparable; and, like any creative industry, they find innovative ways of thriving through collaboration. Musical accompaniment to collections convey the aesthetic of a designer’s work in ways which presenting the collection on its own, cannot. Creativity is style. In recent years, the music has been, literally, amplified. Live music is now adding to the manifestation of runway; the shows of many major fashion houses now like concerts, its musicians their muse.
Haute Haus Agency presents the latest concept to DC fashion… Rock the Runway DC, a fashion-music-infusion like no other. Guests will be presented with an original couture fashion show, haute gift bags, cocktails, live original music, and more – all surrounding the pool with a DC skyline view. Headlining designer is fashion powerhouse Marchesa graciously lending its iconic collections. A portion of the proceeds benefit Music Unites, the leading charity organization supporting music education around the world.
VIP guests include: T.H.E. Artist Agency’s Lynda Erkiletian and Elizabeth Centenari (all models donated by T.H.E. Agency), Grammy-nominated artist Wayna, actress Jamie Hyder (Graceland and True Blood), Music Unites founder Michelle Edgar, and a surprise musical guest that will knock your stilettos off!
