After Becca's Picks, FNO, the District Sample Sale, and Washingtonian Style Setters, we are excited to wrap up Washington's most fashionable month with a bang at Tysons Galleria on September 27-29 with ALL ACCESS: Fashion.
ALL ACCESS: Fashion is a three day fashion and trend event that will allow fashionistas (and fashionistos?) to witness the excitement and energy of the international collections at Tysons Galleria, shop the best of the season, meet style icons and experience the frenzy usually reserved for fashion insiders.
DAY 1: Thursday, September 27 at 7pm
LUXURY: From Conspicuous Consumption to Connoisseurship
Explore the new culture of luxury from desire and innovation to sustainability and travel. Presented together with The Fashion Group International of Washington, D.C.

The panel is comprised of interior designer Barbara Hawthorne, TTR Sotheby's Managing Partner Mark Lowham, Washingtonian Magazine fashion writer/consultant/socialite Aureta Thomollari, and James Tyree of Jo Malone London.
