From a press release:
“Willow DC (843 Upshur St. NW) and Fia’s Fabulous Finds (806 Upshur St. NW) will be hosting the 1st Annual Petworth Fashion Fest on Saturday, September 10, from 11am to 4pm on the 800 Block of Upshur St. NW. There will be live performances from local DJs and over 35 vendors with vintage and new clothing, accessories, handmade crafts, food and coffee. Timber Pizza Co., The Twisted Horn, and Slim’s Diner will be open for brunch that Saturday for the festival.
Willow DC and Fia’s Fabulous Finds have been champions of bringing the Petworth community together through fashion since 2011. The two Petworth-based boutiques are members of the Petworth Business Association, the group responsible for organizing the decade old Annual Upshur Street Art and Craft Fair, and have collaborated in the past, hosting fashion shows and shopping parties. Fia’s also independently hosted a vintage and secondhand pop-up downtown in 2013.
“Supporting local designers and makers is an important part of being a community business. Willow and Fia’s both feature local artists and makers in store. With the Fashion Fest we hope to highlight interesting people that are just getting started in the industry.” says Julie Wineinger owner of Willow.
The Petworth Fashion Fest will bring a variety of local vendors and small businesses together in one convenient spot, where DC fashion lovers can shop with ease.
