MAONO is a relatively new men's and women's brand offering apparel and accessories in DC.  The brand originally got its start in 2011 but the apparel was officially launched in late 2012.  MAONO consists of a team of three offering ready to wear blazers, shirts, bags, ties and other accessories to young professional men and women of DC at an affordable price. MAONO's objective is to provide superior-quality products at low prices based on a "shop smart, look sharp, give back" business model.  Although the team is multicultural MAONO was launched in DC because of the city's unique combination of fashion, power and philanthropy.  With every MAONO purchase 5% is of profits are donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington.  The men’s Spring/Summer 13' collection features linen blazers from Turkey, leather bags, dress shirts, silk ties, belts, wallets and pocket squares from Italy.

This Thursday June 13th, MAONO is hosting its first pop-up shop event at the Science Club in DC to allow customers to get to know the brand and try on the clothes.  We'll be on site offering product and style advice to officially introduce MAONO to the men and women of DC.  IG readers, followers and friends are entitled to a  20% discount with code MAONO-IG on purchases on line or in store until 6/13 at 11:59 PM.  Guests will meet the MAONO team, socialize, and shop while enjoying wine and cupcakes.  Syga Thomas, CEO & Founder for MAONO, says, "We are very excited to bring our unique brand to the DC area and we can't wait to share our ready-to-wear collection with our guests. Being a line for young professionals, we have what people need in DC!"  RSVP at http://maono.eventbrite.com/.
