Flaunt Show Exudes Style

Congrats to Project Beltway's successful Flaunt Runway Show this past Saturday at the Honfleur Gallery; part of ARCH, a community non-profit supporting development in Anacostia. . The event featured DJ Keenan Orr, designers; Dana Greaves of Artistic AYA, Taimur Baig of Mirza Mperial, Lara Akinsanya of L~Shandi, and Will Sharp from Durkl

The event serves as one small step in disproving the myth that DC doesn't know style.

The buzz generated from Flaunt got the event featured in the Washington Post. Check out a snippet of the article below;

"What do you do with fashion photographs that, oddly, aren’t trying to sell clothing, a way of life or desirable body type? Honfleur Gallery, arts-support organization Ten Miles Square and the blog Project Beltway make a case that such images belong on gallery walls. “Flaunt” is their exhibit featuring 20 slick and styled photos exploring fashion’s value as costume and cultural force."

Be sure and check out Durkl; the progressive and uber stylish design team right here in the District.
