On November 14th, 2015 in the shadows of the Georgetown waterfront in Washington D.C., fashionistas and divas united for a fabulous social affair, Cocktails With Claire. Situated at the modernly chic Malmasion and presented by Toyota, fashion lovers gathered to enjoy good music and great energy, shop for exclusive items, and of course sip on a Clairetini....or two!
VIP attendees enjoyed a swag bag with beauty products and a super cute wine glass, make up demos, and power networking with young professionals from the DMV and beyond. Stylists, bloggers, artists, photographers and creatives spent the evening talking, laughing, and loving all things FASHION.

I had the honor of chatting with Claire at the event and asked her how was she able to start with an idea and birth it into the online fashion empire that it is today. From living in Paris to sitting front row at Fashion Week shows nationally and internationally, Claire put in the work to walk in those Loubitin's. She shared her secrets for success and the lessons she picked up along the way on her journey to the dream career and life she lives today.
