Designs by Tashia SennBy Dot Johnson
Unless it’s about politics, Washington, D.C. can often feel like a revolving door. Politicos, academics stay, the rest seem to go away, but that idiom is changing with the emergence of D.C.’s own bustling fashion scene.
Designer Tashia Senn is a D.C. native who always knew she would return home to launch her line of high-end ladies evening wear.
Senn graduated from New York’s prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in May and went right to work on her Spring / Summer 2010 line with a launch scheduled for Oct. 3 at the Studio Gallery.
“NY is saturated with designers, and fashion brands plus buyers and boutiques are looking at other sources outside of New York. D.C. has become really fashion forward and it’s a great niche market for new independent designers like myself,” Senn said.
