"Advanced Style" | The Documentary Screening | Georgetown | Washington, D.C.

According to Bill Cunningham "The best fashion show is on the street. Always has been, and always will be." In this case it definitely proved to be true. Being a huge fan of the blog my expectations were surpassed. The documentary was everything you could have anticipated  and the audience in D.C. was fierce. There to celebrate, verify and one might even say show off D.C. style, check out the looks I caught before the screening!  http://www.fadgeorgetown.com/streetstyle/

"My fashion style is inspired by old and new sources -- I've drawn from old photos of Patti Smith in her heyday to current fashion blogs. I model much of my style based on my environment: while living in DC, I combine conservative menswear lines with some edgier touches (carried over from my LA years)."

"Being a DC native, I've found the environment here to be a unique mix of urban and suburban, and I'm starting to see more and more how that reflects in me. It's in my music (www.soundcloud.com/naimahmusic) through the mix of organic and electronic elements, and in my fashion of mixing softer elements -- loose and light clothing, with hard, edgy items. I guess that's pretty evident in this outfit, a bit of the ethereal, outdoor vibes of this floral dress mixed combined with these tough, city-walking boots."
