Es Lo Mio! (It’s My Style!)
10 hours of style, shopping, wine tasting, and cultural immersion
At the Embassy of Argentina
1600 New Hampshire Avenue, N.W. (Corner of 18th, N.H., and Q Streets, N.W.), Washington, D.C. 20009 Metro: Red Line (Dupont Circle); R.S.V.P. Five4FashionDC@gmail.com
Celebrate Argentina’s bicentennial with a fashionable focus on Argentine leather!
The centerpiece of the day: Diamantina gives you the first look at its latest collection of handmade, Argentine leather handbags. Diamantina’s showcase will teach you about the luxury of Argentine leather, its quality and care. The production of cattle for leather exports has greatly contributed to the development of “the Pampas”—one of the most important commercial centers since the country’s origins. Leather sustains a key part of Argentina’s economy.
To complement Diamantina handbags, the hip, new fashion consortium Five4Fashion will jointly sponsor informal modeling, shopping, a fashion salon, and wine-tasting at the newly renovated Argentine Embassy!
Taste rich, full-bodied Argentine wines.
Shop exotic and sophisticated new jewelry designs and accessories by Nora Fischer Designs and Calamarie: Traditional Art Reinterpreted.
