The Pleatherettes featured by the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce

From the GWFCC newsletter:

…we interviewed Merin Guthrie and Emma Fisher, Creative Directors of Birds of a Pleather, who presented the [Future of DC Fashion] panel on H Street NE during Digital Week. When asked what message they were trying to convey, Fisher explained that, ‘The idea for the Future of DC Fashion panel was something that we had been thinking about for some time because there are so many different types of people that are making up the fashion industry in DC now – designers, show owners, journalists and bloggers, and of course, organizations like GWFCC.’ Merin then added that with their experience in the field and while working at Worn Magazine, she had ‘…the idea to bring them all together to create this panel for DCWEEK and to start a conversation around what the DC fashion community needs inorder to grow in a national force.’ In Merin’s opinion, ‘We have all of the resources – we just need to bring everyone together to make this happen.'”
