Fashion at the Tower, La Mode à La Tour brought fashion lovers from all over the DMV to the beautiful Tower Club in Tysons Corner for a night of beautiful designs by some talented designers. This night was presented in part by the Tower Club, DeShield Enterprises, KF Media Group, Cole Stevens Salon, LAMIK Beauty and Shea Moisture, and proceeds partially benefitted the Cinderella Foundation. The Cinderella Foundation uses fun, creative programs and activities to engage and motivate girls in the DC Metropolitan area.
Before the show started, many of the guests enjoyed a VIP reception and mingled amongst each other along with the designers and many of the industry beauty professionals. Among the guests were D.C. native and celebrity stylist and makeup artist, Derrick Rutledge, who has worked with Oprah Winfrey and our forever First, Lady Michelle Obama. We had a moment for a quick chat with him. When we asked him why he feels it is important to support some of the amazing women that are designing and modeling, he said, “Women are powerful and much stronger than men give them credit for. It is always a good time for women to show the strength that they have and we all should recognize it.”
This high fashion show was hosted by media personality, Guy Lambert, and a soundtrack provided by DJ Curley Sue. Fashion at the Tower showcased the collections of five designers: Korto Momolu, Dur Doux, Kitty & Rhodes, Dell Scott, and Tremaine Pollydore (Maine Attraction). There was also a special performance by international pop singer, Aaron Paul featuring Montgomery “The Image Guru” Frazier.
Some celebrity guest models graced the runway: Bianca Chardei (ANTM), Charisse Jackson Jordan (RHOP), and Dunnie O (Visual Artist).
Kitty & Rhodes
Jasmine Rhodes created a fun and sleek line with color and vibrancy. The line was inspired by color and music. She is based out of North Carolina.
Tremaine Pollydore (Maine Attraction)
His pieces were flowing and beautiful. His goal is for his fashions to be our main attraction. This was his first show outside of his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas.
Siren is the name of the collection highlighted. Her goal was to tap into the sensuality of a woman. Her outfits were definitely red hot!
This mother and daughter duo presented a collection with a unique blend of colors and styles. They were in a lavender and purple mood as it was the main color palette of their show.
This Project Runway All Star dedicated her collection to her friend, Michael Knight, who passed away in 2017. She let us know that she doesn’t follow trends and trusts her gut when designing. Her pieces reflect her unique style at all times.
Such creativity and passion hit the runway and the models executed the styles with such elegance. It was a great night for a great cause. Look out for all of these designers in the near future.
