Maryland Fashion Awards- Re-cap

The Maryland Fashion Awards took place this weekend and this was the first time the fashion community took time to honor some of the people making an impact in the world of fashion in the DMV area.   With categories ranging from stylist, to emerging boutique I had the distinct pleasure of being nominated in the emerging media category for my work on the Ghetto Fashionista.  Though I did not take the award home I was truly flattered by simply being a nominee.


The theme of the awards was to INSPIRE and BE INSPIRED and I can honestly say I was inspired by the attempt to place Maryland and some of its talented and passionate people on the fashion map.
