Fashion Delegate celebrates 1st Anniversary

14 May

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Fashion Delegate celebrated its First Anniversary in private loft apartment on Massachusetts ave in DC. DressHopper, not even being DressHopper that day yet, was invited to witness this blog being born, last May in Clinton Portis‘ house. Since that day, The Fashion Delegate grew up, matured and surrounded itself with huge swarm of fans and followers, which was proven once again by fullness of the house. Lobbyist Jennifer Fisher and Marketing executive Portia Hood, founders of Fashion Delegate, thanked everybody for support during the first year and introduced featured designer – Deidre Jefferies of ESPION.Atelier. Along with tumultuous ovations, Ms.Jefferies received a surprise introduction to Diandre Tristan (stylist for “Good Morning, America“), who expressed his passionate wish to collaborate in the nearest future. Tristan works with many celebrities, i.e. he recently styled Rihanna for her “California King bed” video. It will be so exciting to see fashionable pieces produced in our own DC, working on National (an maybe International?) level. Deidre is already providing her services as a wardrobe stylist¬† for future film directed by Sheldon Candis and produced by Sean Banks (both in attendance that evening).

Artist Lisa Jones had her very unique art work displayed on the walls of the apartment during the event, with sales benefiting so well known Becky’s Fund.¬† Now, not only FD does show interest in fashion and politics, but also in arts, charities and public movements.

The event was hosted by Fashion Washington of Washington Post, now we all cross our fingers and toes and anxiously await for Deidre Jeferries featured on their colorful pages!

Great thanks to Michael Melton, President of 100 Black Men DC, for the hospitality.
