DC On Heels LOVES A.) Shopping B.) Supporting local DC designers like Aidah Fontenot and C.) Repeat A.
BUT there would be no shopping if it wasn’t for incredible talented designers like Aidah.
Since it’s launch in Spring 2008, Aidah Collection has become one of Washington DC’s premier fashion designers & also the red carpet choice of actress Gabrielle Union.
I first met Aidah several years ago at the Fashion Fights Poverty Fashion Show. (FFP is one of the largest non-profit ethical and eco fashion organizations in the United States, and the original eco fashion charity in Washington, that honors national and international designers who employ ethical practices in their design and manufacturing processes to create and sustain economic opportunity.)
Aidah’s eco-chic styles and designs are bold and beautiful. Her Fall/Winter collection would make a fabulous Christmas present. Hint Hint wink wink 😉 Everything she does is handmade but more importantly, made with love. Go see for yourself at her Holiday Trunk Sale Series December 10th and 17th!
