Fashion in the Nation's Capital

So the count down to New York Fashion week continues. There are just 15 more days until the event and I'm still styling these 20 pieces from my closet. Before I can think about fashion's most important time of the year I have to learn more about the history of fashion in my own back yard. 


I traveled to ward 8 to attend the Fashion, Law and Policy Center's series on The Rise of Fashion in the Nation's Capital. The lecture was held at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, did you know there's a free roundtrip shuttle from the National Mall to this museum?


 The space was lovely and the lecture included inspiring words by Holeeta Cain, Founder of Cain & Carlyle; D. Carlyle Briggs, Photographer and Business Manager for (Cain & Carlyle); Claudia Diamante, Founder of handmade leather bag line Diamantina; Jarmal Harris, Founder of The Jarmal Harris Project, which will launch a 12 piece collection of women's clothing in September; and my own nail stylist Indigo Makong of Indigo Nails in Capitol Hill.


WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!
