"I just have a very different story. I didn’t go to fashion school, I have never lived in New York, and I'm not jaded by the fashion industry. I just believe that anything is possible." -Erika Schrieber
Erika Schrieber hails from a small town in Connecticut and is a recent DC transplant. Her background is in public relations with no formal technical training in design, and she is now living in an area that is certainly no contender in the fashion world. You're probably wondering how this young creative even got started in the fashion industry. Erika does not have the typical resumé of an emerging designer, but that is precisely what makes her collections unique and attractive to the everyday woman. Her humble beginnings started in her grandmother's basement with a sewing machine, and today she is on her second capsule collection, showcasing Fall 2014 pieces she titled "Urban Wanderlust". Read her interview to find out how she got started, why DC can be advantageous to emerging designers, and what about our very own city inspired her well-crafted new collection.
Guests at this year's Gold Cup get the GofG gold star for stealing the show from the thoroughbreds on the racetrack with their festive frocks, pastel palettes, and, of course, statement hats. We saw several variations topping off ladies' looks from floppy to boater hats, fascinators to feathered, and even a floral crown! And don't forget the dapper dudes of the day who displayed a whole array of bow ties that made us swoon. We even created a Bow Tie Hall of Fame to show off the cream of the crop. (In the interest of full disclosure, let the record state that this author is smitten with dudes sporting a bow tie.) It's an event that calls for class while maintaining a modern twist so see how these chosen guests tackled the task!

No pressure, though! While the White House Correspondents' Dinner is the main attraction of the weekend, the hoopla extends to parties, events, and brunches all weekend long. We've already covered what to wear, where to primp and now, where to be seen...if you're so lucky to score a spot on the coveted guest lists.
