Booking it with Local Designers
D.C. now has a terrific local design scene, with jewelers, potters, dressmakers and knit geniuses plying their fashionable trades here. If you haven’t checked out the hashtag #acreativedc on Instagram yet, you need to — this town is awash in cool people creating edgy things. September 25, I had the fun gig of curating a pop-up shop of some of the most vibrant of these DMV talents for a benefit for the D.C. Public Library‘s Uncensored gala
Top local makers — DeNada (knitwear), Mallory Shelter (fabulous earrings and necklaces) and Hero Heads (cool T-shirts with portraits of iconic people like the Marvin Gaye and Frieda Kahlo) came out to support the public library (and to stand up against censorship). Hip cocktails, rocking bands and a stylish crowd made for a buzzy evening of shopping, dancing and creative energy.
