OK…FNO this year is shaping up to be off-the-charts awesome. I have to say, the energy in this city for fashion and the fall event season is buzzing right now, and Georgetown’s work to bring FNO to Washington has been a big part of that excitement.
I’m honored to be a Host Committee member for FNO this year, and starting at 8:30 that night, I’ll be helping guests shop and doling out style advice at TARI. Voted Best Vintage Store in the Washington City Paper’s 2011 Best Of list, TARI stands out for designer vintage and consignment (men’s too!). The owners and event conceptualists Art Soiree have put together a night that will be both glamorous and see-and-be-seen and intimately private, thanks to their outside private lounge and event space, to be revealed that night.
You can shop for free of course, but $20 gets you admission to the outdoor event, complimentary antipasto, and Lambrusco. We’ll be playing La Dolce Vita on the big screen, encouraging playing dress-up and photographing you in your new outfits (oh, and if you end up purchasing something, you get in the event for free). Also, the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador will be onsite, which is just as exciting as it was for me to get to ride in one for my thirteenth birthday (it was ALL I WANTED at the time).
Check out event details and RSVP here. See you there, all you fabulous, sexy Washingtonians!
UPDATE: I’m giving away a pair of tickets to he TARI party! Enter to win by telling me something Italian that knocks your socks off: a particular dish, movie, designer, whatever. We’ll pick the lucky winner Wednesday, September 7 at noon. Good luck!
