I was recently contacted to come on board as a feature photographer for an event known as Dine Diaspora. It was an interesting event where the three ladies that put on these quarterly events, bring together leaders in the community and they discuss issues to specific to their groups and how to interact and share ideas and ultimately to network and build with each other. The also bring in a guest chef that specializes in Diaspora type cuisine. I was very impressed with everything from the table settings to the Chef and his menu presentation and the stories that made up the menu. These ladies are on to something and I hope they keep it going and grow.
Being in the DMV for two years has been an eye opening experience in many ways. One way was to be able to discover the local fashion scene here in the city and it only took two years to find out that DC has a fashion week. I was fortunate enough to be able to cover three of the events they had starting with the mens fashion show on the first night. The second event I covered was the emerging designers of the area and eight designers were featured. The finale night, which was my favorite, showcased a lot of the international designers that live here in the DMV area. Below are just a few of the images I was able to show on this blog but believe me there were plenty of amazing designs this year! I can't wait to see what the next season will bring for this DC designers.
