Fashion Washington's Spring Issue Party

By Claire Goldman

In celebration of their new Spring issue, Fashion Washington hosted a stylish affair at Room and Board in the District.  The event featured a live runway showing of designer Allison Parris' Spring and Fall collection.

Lincoln Restaurant catered the event with small plates such as the asparagus and Parmesan hors d'oeuvres featured above. 
Little Black Dress Vodka kept the cocktails flowing.  My personal favorite concoction was the Blueberry Lemonade which includes Little Black Dress Blueberry Pomegranate with lemon-lime soda and a splash of lemonade. 
During the post-show Q and A with Ms. Parris, she admitted her driving ambition to create wearable tutus for women began in her early childhood years.  Her looks are perfect for the gal-on-the-go and her collection covered all the top trends of the this season such as black and white, lace, feather skirts and peter pan collars.
