Recap: The 2nd Annual Glamorous Fashion Show | Cafe Asia Rosslyn

My former roomate and dancemate (shout out to Dynamic Dance Team) invited me to The 2nd Annual Glamourous Fashion Show, held to raise money for the Asian Pacific American Film Festival and Culture Shock DC's Youth Outreach program.

If you don't know about Culture Shock DC you might want to find out...I remember watching them when I was in college; I wanted to join so bad but y'all know I'm more ballet than breakdance (I was a dancer in my former life! Shout out to anybody who danced at Ailey Summer Intensive!)

The evening, sponsored by Singha beer (and they wouldn't let you forget it...they must've brought every piece of signage, t-shirt, hat, visor...and even some free beers for those who like to enjoy that sort of spirit) and had fashions from many local stores around town.

Cafe Asia in Rosslyn provided the perfect space...I didn't even know this Back Room existed but it was a great spot for a show and even the pre-show entertainment, which included dancers breakdancing to pass the time.

Still, the highlight of the night was Culture Shock DC's performance during intermission or even when they raffled off an iPod Touch and a weekend's stay at a hotel in DC. I didn't win either...oh well. Shout out to Swanky Productions, Jasmine, Aurelia and Chris L.!
