Fashion Guru Rebecca Margao: "D.C. Fashion Isn't as Political as People Say"




    Founder of online vintage consignment store Red Sprinkle, Rebecca Margao teamed up her love of networking with her love of fashion at this month's installment of #DCTwixer.

    "D.C. fashion isn't as political as people say," said Margao last night. "People here are stylish."

    Started by Sisarina, Inc., a Web marketing company, #DCTwixer invites Washingtonians to some of the area's swankiest lounges and hot spots to mix and mingle.

    This month's networking event was infused with fashion and showcased jewelr and clothing from area vendors and fashion designers such as Natalia Sanz, Polished Image, Artistic Aya and Klewism.

    "I'm very cheap when it comes to clothing," confessed Margao. "I can spend money on shoes and bags but when it comes to clothing I want a deal -- much like the average woman."

    Margao works with a lot of local designers, bringing unique designs to Washington's trendy scene.

    "There is a lot of new local talent that brings something different to D.C.," said Margao. "D.C. is becoming ahead of the curve with fashion and I hope to introduce new designers that are still underground but great talents."
