On 20 February, Washington DC met with the fashion world. The capital of President Obama opened the curtains for a Fashion show and samba style carnival like in Brazil.
The US capital is not well-known as a fashion capital, but we can find people interested in showing the work of designers and people in Washington, DC that invest in fashion shows.
Your manner of dress can tell a lot about you, and having good taste has nothing to do with having money, sometimes people just have money.
On the runway I could see that you do not need to spend much money to be well dressed, and the designer understood this idea. With cheerful, vibrant clothes and looking very chic, Washington showed that it is worth trying to invest in this area that is growing every day. Washington, DC is more than a capital worldwide. For example Berlin for a long time had no talk of fashion, and is now the capital of meetings between bloggers and familiar characters of this world. This is great for the capital and for the economy of those who want to invest in fashion, as well as for people who like and want to work in this area.
I realized that in Washington DC most people dress in dark colors or deleted. This means that people still a bit afraid to dare and really make a fashion statement, being free with fashion and even gay, why not?
Washington, DC is on track to start walking in this demanding world, fashion, and have great fun too.
Congratulations to all the organizers Tino Anthony and fashion designers: Emily Gonzaga of D’Milikah, Kim Ellen of Kim Ellen collection, Afua Sam of Studio D’Maxsi, Joy Kingsley-ibeh, Christpher Schafer Clothier, and presenters of the night Joy Kingsley and Jason Anthony.
