    penthouse Music and fashion go together like love and marriage, and like any creative industry, they find innovative ways of thriving through collaboration. Musical accompaniment to collections convey the aesthetic of a designer’s work in ways which presenting the collection on its own, cannot. In recent years, the music has been, literally, amplified. Live music is now adding to the manifestation of runway. Shows of many major fashion houses are now like concerts, its musicians their muse - and this summer, music meets fashion at one of DC's most anticipated fashion events. We're getting ready for Rock the Runway DC!

    On, Saturday, July 18, Haute Haus Agency presents the latest concept to DC fashion - Rock the Runway DC, a fashion-music-infusion like no other! From 8PM to 1AM, guests will experience an original couture fashion show accompanied with haute gift bags, cocktails, live original music, and more - all surrounding the glow of the Penthouse pool with a DC skyline view. Headlining designer is fashion powerhouse Marchesa graciously lending its iconic collections. A portion of the proceeds benefit Music Unites, the leading charity organization supporting music education around the world.


    Trend setters and industry leaders will be amongst some of DC's top VIP figures including T.H.E. Artist Agency’s Lynda Erkiletian and Elizabeth Centenari (all models donated by T.H.E. Agency), Grammy-nominated artist Wayna, actress Jamie Hyder (Graceland and True Blood), Music Unites founder Michelle Edgar, and musical guests that will be sure to knock your stilettos off!
