Local Old Town Alexandria businesses - Zoe Boutique, Bishop Boutique, The Dog Park and Sugar House Day Spa and Salon - have combined forces to launch the inaugural Cobblestone Runway lookbook. The new, biannual publication captures the extraordinary aesthetic of Old Town while also showcasing its pet friendly hotels and restaurants such as Morrison House Hotel and Jackson 20.
The debut Cobblestone Runway lookbook features the local trendsetting blogger team of Wendy Santantonio of Old Town Home, Rachel Minarchik of My Fair Vanity, Tammy Preston of A Loyal Love and Bryarly Richards of Everything That Flickers with styling, set and PR/social media consultation by Carlis Sanchez of SpicyCandyDC. Photography is by Susannah Marlowe-Galan of Alumbra Photography; hair and make up was provided by Sugar House Day Spa and Salon; spray tanning by Bronzed Berry Organic Mobile Tanning; and support from the Alexandria Marketing Fund.
"The theme of our first lookbook is A Weekend in Old Town inspired by a girl's (plus puppy's!) getaway," says Bryarly Richards, Manager of Bishop Boutique. "These ladies love shopping, exploring all that this wonderful town has to offer and of course, they love their furry (and fabulous) friends! Old Town is an extraordinary weekend destination, whether you're traveling from Dallas or DC and these lookbooks capture just that!"

“The LookBook offers a window into the experience of a weekend in Old Town – a great amplifier of the Extraordinary Alexandria visitor brand -- showcasing our trend setting boutiques, superb hotels and dog friendly sites and restaurants,” said Patricia Washington, President & CEO of the Alexandria Convention & Visitors Association.
