Washington, DC (September 14, 2011) – This past Thursday, September 8, 2011, from 6-11pm, Fashion’s Night Out braved the drizzle and brought the New York energy to the chic Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC.
Georgetown joined over 100 other cities and 15 countries around the globe to host Fashion’s Night Out, the annual global fashion celebration founded by Conde Nast and Vogue Magazine.
