The District has its own sense of style, influenced by professionals that come from all over the world. DC’s style reflects metropolitan sensibilities with inspirations similar to those of other East Coast cities like New York as well as those from the West Coast like Los Angeles. That style sits alongside and more often than not is infused with traditional clothing aesthetics and classic americana. And DC’s hyper international and cosmopolitan nature ensures vibrancy with stylistic components inspired by and imported from Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and nearly every other point on the globe. As a first introduction to DC’s fashion scene, check out our list of seven DC area women’s clothing boutiques that you won’t find anywhere else.
After an interview with local blogger and journalist Drew Schneider, Petworth News published a profile of ATTIC DC Co-Founder Tarek Anandan. Later that week, the Washington Post published an excerpt of the profile.
Six months ago we launched ATTIC as a way of highlighting small, local, independent furniture stores and dealers. We did it to make shopping with them easier and to help them thrive in a city that is rapidly changing and undergoing tremendous development. We’re proud of what we accomplished with ATTIC. It has led to tens of thousands of dollars of confirmed sales at stores throughout the DMV and helped raise the profile of vintage furniture as a wonderful home furnishing option. And now we’re hoping we can have the same success and similar impact by launching ATTIC Fashion.
