Last week, Joannah Nwokeabia, a member of the DC Fashionistas meetup.com group, emailed me about their "Backstage Pass!" event. I was a big slacker, and didn't spread the news in time, so missed telling you about the December 9th fun.
I'm hoping some of the group members who attended can report in and tell us how the event went down. It certainly sounded like a fashionable time - live fashion shoot, makeup artists - our own DC version of Project Runway + America's Next Top model. And from Pandahead's pics of the night, the attendees lived up to the group's name.
According to the group's site, they're looking to bring together the style and fashion community of DC - to shatter that Drab DC Image. From the member lists and message boards, it's a supportive group working together to help launch DC designers, models, and photographers. Model looking for work? Designer putting together your first show? Turn to the group for advice and friends willing to pitch in. But not only the professionals are part of this - those not (yet) trying to make money in fashion are welcome, too.
So sorry, Joannah, for not posting this earlier - but hopefully folks can still link up with DC Fashionistas and connect to others in the DC fashion world. And chime in and tell us about the event!
