Celebrity menswear designer Miguel Wilson is hosting the 2023 3rd Annual DC Black Tie Experience, on Saturday, May 20, at The National Harbor Pavillion, 163 Waterfront Street, Oxon Hill, MD, in the Washington D.C.-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) area on the Potomac River.
The 2023 3rd Annual DC Black Tie Experience is a red-carpet event, creating a night of elegance where culture and class connect at the nation’s capital. In past years, this event attracted approximately 500 attendees, with men wearing white dinner jackets and women dressed in all-black evening gowns.
“When we started doing this three years ago, our goal was to create a stable event in the Washington D.C.- area, that would showcase luxury and style,” said Miguel Wilson, owner of the Miguel Wilson Collection and founder of the DC Black Tie Experience. “As a native of Washington DC, I always knew that the city, and area in general, had a certain style. What I didn’t know was the number of people that would show up and show out each year.”
Attendees will have access to signature cocktails and complimentary champagne, light hors d’oeuvers, 360 photos, live music and DJ, a fashion show, and a celebrity guest performance.
Prior to the event, a Cocktails and Cigars Under the Stars party will take place on Friday, May 19, at the AC Hotel by Marriott National Harbor Washington, DC Rooftop. Entry is included with BTE ticket.
Additionally, Miguel Wilson will host a DC Yatch Brunch Experience Cruise, a separate event that includes brunch and endless mimosas on a private yacht in the Potomac River.
The DC Black-Tie Experience serves as a fundraising event for Ride to the Olympics Foundation (RTO), a non-profit organization that is dedicated to changing history by empowering underrepresented youth throughout the country.
The organization is committed to increasing awareness and exposure to equestrian sports (polo, show jumping and dressage) to overcome barriers, strengthen communities and help youth reach their full potential, who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to do so.
“Over the years, we’ve proven that the DC Black Tie Experience is not only a signature event but also a destination event. We have people who fly in from out of town just to attend and enjoy the festivities. It’s truly remarkable to be able to make a mark in my hometown.”
