On Friday, August 22, our friends at Design Army hosted a late summer pool party and fashion event at Capitol Skyline Hotel to celebrate the launch of our very special Karla Colletto X Design Army “Swim At Your Own Risk” capsule collection.
The soiree was a success, with over 200 guests including some of DC’s most fashionable. The night’s “lifeguards on duty” were models from T.H.E. Artist Agency, sporting pieces from the capsule collection and striking their best poses for Kate Warren, the official event photographer. Cool tunes from DJ Paul Thornley of U.S. Royalty and a screening of everyone’s favorite Jaws help set the mood as guests mingled over Corona-ritas and custom “Swim At Your Own Risk” cookie pops by Occasions Caterers. Guests wrestled inflatable alligators in the pool and got silly at the photo booth provided by Onomonomedia. Event photographers from a Guest of a Guest, Brightest Young Things, and DC Hot Spots were also on the scene to capture the night’s highlights.
Thanks again to everyone who attended, as well as our friends and sponsors: T H E Artist Agency, Occasions Caterers, Amaryllis, Inc. Floral + Event Design, OnomonoMEDIA, LLC, Everything But Water, Kate Warren, and of course Design Army. See some snaps from the event below (photos by Kate Warren):
