Just a little housekeeping before we get underway. For the next month or so, I’ll be moving to a biweekly schedule. As much as I’d love to be able to do this on a weekly basis, other obligations have got in the way. I hope to be back on a regular weekly schedule when summer begins.

Anyways, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

So last week, I made it over to the fashion:district Spring/Summer show over at Long View Gallery on 9th Street NW, right by the convention center. (As an aside, it was my first time over at the gallery, and I just loved the space; if you haven’t been yet, I highly recommend checking it out ASAP).

Some of you may remember my piece on DC Fashion Week a couple of months ago; in so many ways, the menswear show was an unmitigated disaster with a few highlights. Well, I’m happy to say that fashion:distirct’s show, while not without its flaws, was a significant improvement.
