The first Petworth Fashion Fest is this Saturday

By Rachel Maisler

This Saturday, September 10th, the inaugural Petworth Fashion Fest will transform the 800 block of Upshur Street into the fashion center of the nation’s capital for an afternoon. Organized by the owners of Willow Fashion and Fia’s Fabulous Finds, the Petworth Fashion Fest will feature nearly three dozen clothing and accessory vendors, along with live performances from local DJs.

Neighborhood eateries including Twisted Horn, Timber Pizza Co. and Slim’s Diner will be open for brunch Saturday for the festival.

"Supporting local designers and makers is an important part of being a community business. Willow and Fia's both feature local artists and makers in store,” said co-organizer and Willow owner Julie Wineinger. “With the Fashion Fest we hope to highlight interesting people that are just getting started in the industry.”

Vendors will offer vintage and new clothing, accessories, handmade crafts, food and coffee. Some artists, including Auggie Froggy, Fearless Threads, Second Story Boutique and Afrobaby are local to Petworth.
