Capitol File's Fashion Frenzy Event 2018

| October 15, 2018 | Parties Events

Capitol File’s Fall Fashion Frenzy Issue Release Celebration debuted extravagant fashion in the district. The venue, The Perry Belmont House mansion in Dupoint Circle, showcased exquisite pre-WWI Beaux Arts architecture and design. Guests had their choice of custom cocktails by Vida Tequila as well as drinks from Peroni and District Winery wines. A tempting assortment of Hungry Catering appetizers were also available, and guests with a sweet tooth could indulge in Candy Display by Hilary Bradley of The Chocolate Chick. The princess staircase showcased a Step and Repeat Entrance by Amaryllis Florals and lined with Frost Lighting candlesticks for the ultimate step and repeat photo opportunity. Upstairs, Glamsquad’s hair and makeup touch-up station had guests looking fresh faced all night and perfectly prepared them for Jacqui De Pas’s Laduree Photo Studio, a fun yet fabulous picture spot. The refined ambiance throughout the estate was due to enchanting music by harpist Nadia Pessoa and Andy Kushner’s string quartet. Guests had no shortage of Instagrammable moments, from Type A Invitations’ creative signage, to a champagne tower, to the multiple meticulously decorated ballrooms. The event was nothing short of stunning.
