According to the September issue of Washingtonian magazine, the District might not be a fashion center of the world (yet), but that doesn’t mean that Washingtonians aren’t trying their hardest to ascend the global sartorial pecking order. Leading the effort to recognize those D.C. residents who buck the city’s convention for donning conventionally conservative attire is the magazine’s annual list of best dressed locals.
The Washingtonian describes communicators on the 2011 list of honorees as follows:
• Jonathan Capehart: A member of The Washington Post’s editorial board and an opinion writer for the newspaper, in addition to guest commenting on a variety of MSNBC dayside programs;
• Gwen Moore Holliday: A vice president at full-service public and government affairs shop DCI Group who counsels corporate clients on government and public relations strategies; and,
• Aba Kwawu: "The fashion, design, and luxury lifestyle PR wunderkind behind the eponymous Aba Agency", Kwawu’s influence stretches from Tysons Galleria to the prized shops of Georgetown and everywhere in between, including producing the always sold-out annual Fashion for Paws runway show benefiting the Washington Humane Society.
The full list is in the magazine's September issue.
