Columbia Heights Beauty Day

Hi Darlings:

The Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce had its first community outreach to the 8 wards event on Thursday featuring the stores, designers and restaurants in Columbia Heights of Ward 1. It was a day of fashion and beauty. Guests were treated to complimentary micro-dermabrasion treatment and advice from the staff at Radiance Medspa , food and mojitos from Rumberos as well as a brief fashion show featuring the designs of Swanky by MJ and Studio D-Maxsi Designs.

Swanky by MJ designers Maggy Francois and Jamila Jeter were in house to discuss their silk purse designs with an asian flare. Afua Sam of Studio D Maxsi was on hand to discuss her fabulous designs using African lace and contemporary fabrics tailored for the the for the woman not afraid to be the center of attention while making a fashion statement. The affordable pieces were suprisingly mostly under $500. Afua who is a self-taught seamstress utilized earth-toned fabrics for her evening wear pieces.
