There are good ideas, there are great ideas and then there are awesome ideas. Jenny Schretter prefers the latter. Besides being the brain behind KOLTON.J, your soon-to-be favorite new jewelry designer (seriously, PEEP THIS BLING!), she's the lead organizer of this season's most stylish event, Know Fashion, which promises to occupy all your senses, starting with the space it's happening in. Once a bank, then a nightclub, and now a vacated storefront, Jenny's collaborating with the righteous dudes of No Kings Collective, the art group that put together subMERGE DC, the Water Street Project and a whole slew of other sweet spots, to turn 915 F St., NW, into an epic pop-up party space unique enough to host this multi-sensory extravaganza.
So what's gonna happen? The short answer is everything. The long answer goes like this: besides getting a chance to meet Jenny, who will be hosting the event with Kate Michael of K Street Magazine, party-goers can start their nights right by arriving at 8 p.m. sharp to get first bid during the silent auction that’ll feature designs and wares from local artists and businesses. Meanwhile, Twice as Warm will be live screen-printing on the spot while two of DC’s finest DJs, Spinser Tracy and Jerome Baker III, promise to entertain your ears. At 10 p.m., stimulate your sense of sight by witnessing KOLTON.J team up with local clothing designers Walish Gooshe, Tsyndyma, Commonwealth and Accoutre to put on one helluva runway show. Then stick around for a musical performance by Tabi Bonney and Jeff Boyd as well as a dance set from world-renowned dancer Geoffrey “Toyz Are Us” Chang. Finally, stay tuned for an additional surprise musical guest, and no, you won't be disappointed. Plus, as noted, don't forget to check out the setting that’ll feature an installation specially designed by artists Brandon Hill and James Kerns that another artist, Maggie O’Neill, will be live painting on.Our advice? Prepare your Instagram filters now because you're gonna want to document this event. It's like a high-five for your entire body, mind and soul.
