On Monday, September 26 the Fashion Group International® of Greater Washington, DC, Inc. (FGIDC) hosted a Fall/Winter 2016 trends and meet the press event at the American Institute of Architects.
The event started with a trend presentation and was followed by a conversation with the city’s fashion editors, writers, and digital influencers on the seasons trends and how to communicate with them about your brand, product or service. Panelist included Stephanie Green, WWD; Suzy Jacobs, Capitol File Magazine; Catherine Trifiletti, Washington Life Magazine; and Holly Pan, Petite Flower Presents. Questions such as “does DC fashion have seasons” and “how will the new first family effect fashion” were asked by our Regional Director, Elaine Mensah. Additionally, the guest had opportunities to ask questions to our panelists. Some questions included, “how do [they] approach bloggers to review products” and “what are [their] favorite designers and emerging/under the radar designers?”
