WASHINGTON, DC – Co-Chairs Barbara McConaghy Johnson, Immediate Past President of The Washington Ballet Women’s Committee, and Staci Capuano; Bloomingdale’s; and Washington Life Magazine are teaming up to present Runway en Relevé Redux, a private fall fashion show to be held on November 13 at Bloomingdale’s in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  This exclusive event, which will kick off with a 6:30 pm cocktail reception, will highlight the season’s most in-demand looks and will benefit The Washington Ballet.  Bloomingdale’s will donate 10% of sales from all purchases on November 13 & 14 to TWB.

“This year’s fashion show will be a fantastic holiday presentation featuring TWB’s world-class dancers, Jeté Society and Women’s Committee members, as well as members of the Board of Directors,” said co-chair Barbara McConaghy Johnson. “The evening will include prizes galore, a fabulous raffle, and of course, the newest trends for winter fashion!”

“The fall fashion show promises to be a unique and exiting event, ideal for the holidays,” said co-chair Staci Capuano. “We are thrilled to partner again this year with Bloomingdale's. Their leadership in fashion and extraordinary generosity make them the ideal partner for this event. Be sure to purchase tickets early, as we expect another sell-out!”

Originally founded as The Washington School of Ballet in 1944 by legendary ballet pioneer Mary Day, The Washington Ballet (TWB) was incorporated as a professional company in 1976, and is one of the pre-eminent ballet organizations in the United States. TWB built an international reputation presenting bold works by choreographers from around the world, and its first artist-in-residence, Choo-San Goh, set the tone for the company's emergence as a powerhouse among national companies. Contemporary pieces by Christopher Wheeldon, Mark Morris, Twyla Tharp and Nacho Duato expanded the repertoire, as did Neoclassical masterworks and fresh interpretations of 19th century classics. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Septime Webre and Executive Director Russell P. Allen, TWB has embraced a three-part mission: ensuring excellence in its professional performance company, growing the next generation of dancers through The Washington School of Ballet and serving the communities of the Washington, DC area through robust community engagement programs, including DanceDC and TWB@THEARC.


Bloomingdale’s is America’s only nationwide, full-line, upscale department store; and a division of Macy’s, Inc.  It was founded in 1872 and currently operates 40 stores in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Illinois, Minnesota, Georgia, Florida, Nevada and California.  For more information, or to shop any time, visit www.bloomingdales.com.
