Tashia Senn Collections Spice Up the DC Fashion Scene

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the private viewing of local designer Tashia Senn who launched her new women’s evening wear, TASHIA SENN COLLECTIONS, before a packed audience at Studio Gallery in Dupont.

Two words: Fashion Fhenom! Tashia Senn is an alum of Georgetown Visitation and upon graduating from the University of Pittsburgh she fled to the New York Fashion Institute of Technology in 2009.

She is back in DC and during her knock out show I was amazed by the clean lines and striking silhouette’s in her collection. Among the items in her signature line are breathtaking floor length ball gowns, flirty cocktail dresses and hand-beaded one-piece jumpers. The pieces were all made with 100% silk including Crepe de Sheen, Dupioni, Silk Charmeuse and Duchess Satin adorned with French lace, Swarovski Crystals and semi-precious stones.

The launch event was a special night for DC’s creative community with support from area artists, businesses, nonprofits, fashion advocates and bloggers.

Support of fellow creatives and businesses throughout the city included Executive Chef Teddy Folkman of Granville Moore’s on H St in NE, who catered the launch with a menu of dishes donated by fellow Atlas District chefs Matthew Richardson of The Argonaut and Pablo Cardoso Executive Chef, H Street Country Club. The delectable menu was paired with Thailand’s delicious Chang beer and sumptuous cocktails stirred by The Park.

Following the success of her launch event, Tashia was invited to be the featured fashion designer for Pecha Kucha Night Out as part of AIGA’s DC Design Week taking place next week so be sure to stop by Pecha Kucha and see her incredible designs. CLICK HERE for more information and the schedule.
