Are you sick at looking at this? I’m not, but then, I’m not Phil Bronstein.San Francisco Chronicle Editor-at-Large Phil Bronstein can’t take it anymore. He can’t take the stories about the dog, or the speeches, or how adorable the First Family is. He can’t take all the love (or lust) going on with the press and their hunger for all things Obama related. It’s making the poor man so sick he’s writing lengthy columns about it on Huffington Post.

For years many have joked that Washington, D.C. is the place where fashion goes to die, with the politicos and contractors in their standard suits of blue, black and gray, where New York fashionistas eviscerated us for our tennis shoes with our suits as we walked from point A to point B around town.

But that’s the stereotype. The reality is that DC is being fueled by a fashion boom and a swell of fresh creative energy since November.

Capitalizing on this new energy were Bisi Entertainment & Jules Management & Consulting. The groups collaborated to launch the First Annual African Fashion Showcase & Design Competition May 30.

One afternoon last year, a coworker started a conversation with me about her sister’s former marriage. We weren’t really friends – I’d only known her for a few days, but she was one of those talkers who would tell you her entire life story before you even know her last name.

“My sister was married to this guy … I knew something was off about him, and our mama warned her before she married him that he was gay. She’s good at noticing that stuff. But she just got mad at our mama and married him anyway.

So years go by and I see the signs – I know he’s gay. My sister’s the only one who didn’t know or didn’t want to know. Then she finally finds out he was cheating on her. And with a man! But our mama told her! She had so many signs. But she just wanted to be married.”
