Washington, DC isn’t always best known for its fashion design scene – but honestly, since starting my blog, I have been finding out that this is kind of a misconception. My blog had allowed me to meet some pretty fab fashion designers in DC. I first met Stephanie with Punk Rock Bride [she practically lives in my backyard!] and then I recieved an email from Liz with Elizabeth St. John Couture [who I also got to attend DC Fashion Week's Eco Night thanks to!] and now, an email from yet another DC area designer, Claire Cambardella, about to launch a line of eco-friendly wedding dresses.
I am smitten.
Not only are these DC wedding dress designers local, but they push hand-made dresses, with the finest quality, and with our environment in mind – not to mention their designs perfectly align with our “offbeat” and non-traditional vibes here.
Head on over to Claire’s website for more ~ but I am happy to share that she will be having two trunk shows coming up on April 14 in Washington, DC (at the lululemon in Georgetown) and April 29 in Annapolis, MD!
Here are the details:
April 14- “3265 Popup”. This will be a sneak peek at the line before our launch party on the 29th. It will be at the Lululemon Athletica in Georgetown from 11-6, at 3265 M St. NW WDC 20007 with 10% discount on all orders placed that day
April 29- Launch Party and Trunk Show at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Philip Merrill Environmental Center. 12-3. We will be officially debuting the line, enjoying refreshments at our gorgeous waterfront venue, offering door prizes (from us as well as other local and green vendors) and offering consultations to help brides find and customize their perfect dress.
Let us know if you attend either of these shows ~ would love to hear how it goes!! :)
