Fashion Night Ignites

The Hidden Language of Diplomacy: “Fashion Night Ignites showcased cutting-edge fashion designers rarely seen in Washington to rekindle the city’s passion for fashion,” said Indira Gumarova, founder of Diplomacy & Fashion and wife of the Ambassador of the Czech Republic. “In diplomacy, fashion is as important as language. It is just as powerful. Moreover, it offers the most bi-partisan approach across many layers of society.”


“This event is only the beginning,” said Zarah Burstein, co-chair of Fashion Night Ignites. “We are already planning the next fashion presentation, bringing international designers on the heels of the better-known fashion weeks to showcase their collection in our Nation’s Capital.”
