Fashion Canvassing Project presented by the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce this Saturday

Saturday the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce event will connect fashion entrepreneurs to the growing DC Fashion industy and provide resources for business development, job training, and job opportunties. The project has been supported by a grant from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development. If you're a designer, register and learn about these opportunities. If you want to volunteer to canvass the neighborhoods of DC and register businesses, please sign up at

Do you have a passion for fashion, and want to help the local fashion industry grow in Washington, DC?

If so, please join the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce (GWFCC) on Saturday, May 9th from 12-6pm as we launch our first “Fashion Canvassing Project".

GWFCC is "taking it to the streets" in this fashionable grassroots campaign. Volunteers will be dispatched to various areas of DC to do outreach, awareness and to administer the Fashion Census Survey. Why is this important you ask? Because if we have proof that local fashion businesses exist in DC, we can easily advocate for more resources to support this emerging creative economy!!

Afterwards, volunteers, the GWFCC team, and special invited guests, will enjoy a private networking reception. To read more about the Fashion Census, please visit
