Off the Beaten Path in DC

Washington DC was an incredible place to be during the Pandemic because it was empty unlike anything I ever imagined.  I took the opportunity to walk all over the city and enjoy the beauty without the crowds.  Now that things are opening back up, the crowds are coming back but I thought it would be fun to share some fun things to do that aren’t just the main tourist attractions.  It’s fun to see the city in a different way!  Here are 10 ideas I highly recommend to enjoy DC a little differently.

It’s Fashion Revolution Week

It’s Fashion Revolution week commemorating the 8th anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse.  Rana Plaza was a building in Bangladesh which housed a number of garment factories, employing around 5,000 people. The people in this building were manufacturing clothing for many of the biggest global fashion brands. More than 1,100 people died in the collapse and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. The victims were mostly young women.

This year, Fashion Revolution Week is focused on Rights, Relationships, and Revolution. We all have a role in the movement to change the fashion industry.

Happy Anniversary To Us!

It’s hard to believe this week marks one year since we launched Ginger Threads Collections!  When we envisioned opening a sustainable fashion boutique the Pandemic was not in sight.  We created a logo, built a website and started finding brands to partner with, even attending a huge fashion market in Las Vegas! As the inventory started coming in, the Covid-19 cases around the world started to climb.  The boutique officially launched as planned on March 18, 2020 as the United States went under a stay-at-home order.  It certainly wasn’t ideal, but it was too late to turn back!
