DC FASHION EVENT: @GLAMOURHOLICS LAUNCHES THE CURBSIDE FASHION TRUCK






GlamourHolics Launch New Mobile Boutique:
Curbside Fashion Truck
Metropolitan DC’s First Fashion & Beauty Truck!
Saturday, August 24th | 6:30pm to 9pm

WASHINGTON, D.C. – GlamourHolics will celebrate the launch of the DMV’s first mobile boutique, Curbside Fashion Truck, Saturday, August 24th at Panache Restaurant. The event will bring together the who’s who of the District's most fashionable crowd, and will bring exposure to this new mobile retail concept, where customers will experience a new and convenient way to shop, bringing the latest clothing, accessories, and beauty products to their door at affordable prices.

Myss Stephens, creator of Glamourholics decided to be the first to bring the glam on the go fashion trend to the DMV after seeing the success of the East Coast mobile Boutique “Style Liner”.

“I became so intrigued and impressed with the concept, that I decided to use my savings and expand my GlamourHolics business past the vending events and it’s online store. I’d always wanted a boutique, but the risk of running a brick and mortar was always a little unsettling for me, so I knew that this new mobile-retail trend was the way to go. As a result, the Curbside Fashion Truck was born!”
-  Myss Stephens, GlamourHolics

The transformation from truck to a glam mobile boutique was a process, but the curated mobile fashion unit is ready for its unveiling! Featuring unique fashion finds and beauty indulgence under the $100 price point, the truck will make its way through the metropolitan area while still offering the comforts of your favorite boutique including a dressing room; state of the art sound system; and a wet bar. The Curbside Fashion Truck is also available for private events offering special “Girls Night Out” packages, including a custom make-up bar, where patrons are able to book appointments to have their foundation custom blended while they wait! 

Celebrate the launch of the newest fashion trend to hit the District Saturday, August 24th 6:30pm to 9pm at Panache Restaurant. Shop and sip while enjoying musical selections by DJ AE. Mingle with fellow fashion influencers and win prizes from GlamourHolics, as we celebrate Curbside Fashion Truck, the first fashion and beauty truck in the city!

DC SHOPPING EVENT: SAMIRA 13 FINE JEWELRY TRUNK SHOW


Celebrated Tabandeh boutique, located in Friendship Heights, will present an exclusive trunk show for Samira 13 fine jewelry with an appearance by the designer Samira Sizdahkhani. Seen on celebrities such as Lea Michele, Madonna, Christina Ricci, Debra Messing, Kelly Osbourne, Kaley Cuoco and many more, Samira uses unorthodox materials in unique combinations blending distressed metals, tattered silks and leathers with South Sea pearls and raw gemstones to create her uniquely exquisite designs. 
 
Born into a fashion family, Samira began making jewelry at age 12 in the workshop of her mother’s renowned D.C. designer boutique, Tabandeh.  After university, and during a brief stint as a fashion stylist in LA, Samira’s love affair with South Sea pearls was ignited.  She became intrigued with the mythical qualities attributed to black pearls by many ancient cultures, and began incorporating them in her designs.

WHEN:           Tuesday, August 13, 2013
11:00am – 7:00pm, Cocktails & Refreshments 5:30-7

About Samira 13 (www.samira13.com)
The Samira 13 Collection was launched in 2008 by Los Angeles designer / sculptor Samira Sizdahkhani.  Influenced in part by her Persian heritage, Samira takes inspiration from the primitive, monastic aesthetics of her nomadic ancestors.  Using unorthodox materials in unique combinations, she blends distressed metals, tattered silks and leathers with South Sea pearls and raw gemstones to create her uniquely exquisite designs.
