DC Roaming.. Fashionably

The month of November must be the month of fashionable events. With 4 events on my calendar this past Wednesday, all starting at or around the same time I was able to attend 2 of them. MontagePR's Meet and Tweet as well as  Paradigm//​Shift - A two-part look at the state of DC fashion presented by the ladies of Birds of a Pleather. Event number two should have been attended by more folk who take fashion, especially in DC seriously. I have so many notes to share from the panel, but in the mean time check out these photos from event number one lol...

Now, lets get into event number 2. Desiree, Jimmy and I headed to Big Board on H st for the panel discussion focusing on the future of DC fashion, where I ran into Katie of Go Kate Shoot and Elise of It's Vintage Darling. They Looked FAB as always

The Panel consisted of a number of knowledgeable folk with in the fashion industry and just the supporters of the creatives in general. I took a great deal of notes, and I will be following up with these individual's because I am intending to start my own fashion line =)
 Panelists represented for Hugh & Crye, Nana, Aidah Collection, Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce, ReadySetDC, DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, CapFABB, Refinery29, and  Butler & Claypool
