The Autism Society of Northern Virginia (ASNV) will hold its third Arts for Autism gala and fashion show on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at Clarendon Ballroom in Arlington, and it is well on its way to selling out.
Saturday, February 2, 2013, 7:00-10:00 p.m.
3185 Wilson Blvd.
Arlington, VA 22201
This unique event enlists model-fundraisers from the local fashion community and educational institutions to post their pictures on the Arts for Autism website prior to the gala and promote it to friends and family seeking donations and support. The model-fundraisers then get to walk the runway at the gala wearing fine apparel provided by local designers and retailers. Those walking the runway include current and aspiring models, and high school students earning community service and classroom credit. Students from McLean High School, Marymount University and Tysons Corner Center’s Classroom on the Mall program are among those who have helped plan the event.
Beyond the fact it's a good cause that furthers ASNV’s mission to support local families who have been touched by autism, the gala is also a fun and fashionable event held at a beautiful, first-class venue. The gala reception features an art show and a series of brief performances and remarks by people in autism community and local elected officials, followed by a New York-style fashion show with model fundraisers walking down the runway to the sounds of a dee-jay wearing the latest fashions provided by local retailers, designers and boutiques.
The gala is open to members of the local media who register in advance. It is a high-profile event that offers great visuals and the opportunity to mingle with an affluent, fashion-conscious audience. We promise a great evening with gourmet food and drink, and a friendly audience supporting a worthy cause.
Autism is the nation’s fastest-growing intellectual disability, and autism prevalence rates have grown to 1 in every 88 children in the United States. In Virginia, the number of autistic students in state schools increased 15 percent between 2010 and 2011, and has grown every year since the state began collecting this data. The looming surge in the number of adults on the spectrum will create unprecedented demand to help this growing population, since there are currently few supports for autistic adults who have aged out of the school system. ASNV serves families touched by autism in the Northern Virginia area by providing a full range of services and supports.
The DC area’s hottest fashion show and high-end bargain trunk sale returns to Crystal City this February! Next year’s event will be the biggest and best we’ve had so far. Crystal Couture already brings over 40 of the metropolitan area’s most stylish boutiques and designers all under one roof, and we’re expecting even more this year because of its new location. We have moved Couture to an office building which has more space to house a bigger runway and more boutiques. This one-stop shopping experience lets guests browse discounted offerings on the rack AND on the runway as models showcase offerings of the participating boutiques. Shoppers will also enjoy sips from the bar, free make-up and hair makeovers, chats with fashion consultants, music from DJ Neekola, and experience a one-of-a-kind ambiance. Crystal Couture 2013 will take place from February 5th to February 9th, 2013 in the 251 18th Street office building. Already excited for Crystal Couture? Tell us that you are coming.
Last night was the grand opening party at South Moon Under @ Mosaic District. It also happened to be Mosaic's Fashion Night Out!

Champagne was served along with Georgetown Cupcakes, 20% off the entire store all night, a DJ, AND a book signing by Cupcakes and Cashmere!
