Luke's Wings - Fashion Takes Flight

Luke's Wings and Fashion Takes Flight Hits It Out of the Ballpark - On February 4, 2012, the 4th annual high energy fashion show featuring models and military service personnel rocked the Stars and Stripes VIP Club at Nationals Park.

Washingtonians are known for their philanthropic pursuits and fashion has an ever-growing voice in the District, and it's a great lineup in bringing these together to support an organization that assists families of those who serve.
