Being Stylish with B. Evans
This week, the District celebrates DC Fashion Week 2011 from September 19 through September 25 with a host of events showcasing local designers and helping them build their brand and awareness for this growing creative community that often goes overlooked. The theme this year is The Power of Style.
One man exerting his power is B. Evans. After a fashion hiatus for several years he has returned to his passion of designing and creating women’s clothing that reflects his love for all things beautiful. In honor of DC Fashion Week, B. Evans answers these four questions for the ladies looking to convey their substance and style.
Q: What is something you’d like to see more women in the District try?
A: I would like to see women anywhere be fashion forward, more creative with their expression of style. Women have the ultimate availability to wear anything they choose…I love it! I think its very cookie cutter here. I would also like women to be more comfortable but conscience, and I’m talking in terms of shaping themselves. You can be Fabulous in a size 20 if the proportion is right and smooth. There was a time when women were concerned about the way clothing fit and flattered.
Q: What should women ask before purchasing a dress?
A: Does this fit and flatter my silhouette?
Q: What is a common faux pas women make when dressing themselves?
A: Thinking every style is for every body type. That’s its okay that your clothes are too tight.
Q: What should every woman have in her closet?
A: Every woman should own a black dress that is flattering, a pair of black patent leather pumps, red lipstick, fabulous trench coat, diamond studs, pearl necklace, black Kidd skin gloves and one custom fitted dress!
