I want to show you DC through the perspective of a fashionista who supports local, sustainable, and creative businesses. We will be visiting stores or markets that sell artistic, quality, recycled, or locally-produced apparel and non-apparel products. For certain retailers, I will invite owners and managers to provide a brief history and introduction about their businesses, as well as possibly provide an exclusive discount for your purchases during the experience! In addition, I will guide you through neighborhoods that are local favorites, so that you get a true DC experience! Not only will you walk away with unique finds, but you will also get to support local businesses that are rare gems to the community! I might even throw in some fashion advice along the way! Please note that this experience will last about 2-3 hours including transit time between different locations. The experience will be hosted whether it is one guest or as many as five guests at a time.
