For anyone who still doesn’t believe that D.C. is becoming a fashion forward city for the urban professional, this may change your mind. MONARCH Magazine, a national lifestyle and fashion publication, has moved it’s corporate office to D.C. The decision to move the magazine was to “…have the magazine in a place that embodies today’s culture and style for the pressional…D.C has that,” states publisher, Will Walters. It’s first issue since calling D.C. home will feature NBA baller, Dwanye Wade on the cover along with stories on musician, El Debarge, and fashion stylist Lloyd Boston.
To celebrate MONARCH’s new home, it is partnering with fashion powerhouse, J.Crew, (you all know how I love J. Crew) to host an exclusive styling and shopping event at the brand’s Georgetown location. America’s Next Top Model judge, Paul Wharton, and author/personal branding authority, Melissa Johnson, will host the event. Attendees will receive advice from these fashion gurus and J.Crew stylists on how to identify and transition their looks from corporate to nightlife.
We took a sneak peak at the December issue of MONARCH (available on newsstands Dec 16th) and we were thoroughly impressed with the breadth and depth of topics, conversation, tips and hints to improve the lifestyle of the urban African-American. We look forward to partnering with MONARCH to provide readers more of the exciting and cutting edge fashion & style advice that DC modern professionals crave. Stay tuned for the good news!
