This past Monday, I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer with Indie Fashion Week as a Public Relations Assistant! Indie Fashion Week, created by Terrance Payton and Harley Morgan, is a semi-annual series of events with the intention of highlighting and showcasing products from fashion houses and collectives right here in the District.

Monday night was the kick off event of Indie Fashion Week and the official launch of The Moxy Lounge dubbed "The New Vintage Styling Phenomenon of the DMV." The event was located at Amsterdam Lounge right on U Street. The Moxy Lounge will house exclusive vintage finds available for purchase while serving as a venue for brands to gain exposure and sales potential. Indie Fashion Week Co-Founder, Terrance Payton described Moxy as "a one stop shop for the vintage enthusiast."

Monday's event, entitled #ModelMondayz, will be a weekly happy hour and social with the purpose of uniting members of the music/fashion/entertainment industry while highlighting different brands. The models interacted with audience members which really enhanced the overall event.

As a PR Assistant, I was thrown wherever they needed me. I ended up backstage assisting the stylists and models and would not have been happier anywhere else. The models were gorgeous, of course, and had no problem striking poses on and off the runway.

"Hollywood Glam"
"80's Fun"
I had a great time and look forward to working with some of the stylists and models I met in the near future. Stay tuned ;)

And as always, Stay Profashional my loves! xoxo

  1. This is the best function room in the city. The food they served was warm, fresh and tasty, and the panoramic window is a sight to behold on a clear day. Their main hall was similar to a club/lounge – however, venues in Chicago had more of an intimate feel.
