Bitches Who Brunch co-founders Becca Clara Love and Cori Sue Morris.
Roughly two hundred or so self-appointed “bitches” for the day took over L Street’s RAMMY Award-nominated RIS
restaurant on Sunday afternoon, for Washington-based website Bitches Who Brunch
’s inaugural gathering.
A 'bitchy' toast...
A rather appropriate brunch-time affair, the cocktail-style party provided guests with bottomless glasses of mimosas (or orange juice/beer combinations for those so inclined) while RIS’ prim wait staff circulated plates of gourmet small dishes.
And while everyone clearly enjoyed the relaxed conversation and soundtrack delivered by DJ Raha Wala
, the feature attraction of the event was the half hour-long fashion show featuring styles from hybrid SoHo/DC boutique Rue 14
and upscale fashion chain South Moon Under
Models gather backstage.
Thirteen well-know local personalities from all walks of life, including Metrocurean
foodie founder Amanda McClements
, DC Magazine
rainmaker Lindsey Becker
, and Congressional Communications Director Maureen Shanahan
, strutted their stuff down a makeshift red-carpeted runway for the event, with a portion of ticket sales benefiting the urban/environmental nonprofit known as Farm To School
Metrocurean founder Amanda McClements.
DC Dance Collective member Gwoping Yang.
The organization connects schools and local farms with the objectives of serving healthy meals in school cafeterias, improving student nutrition, providing agriculture, health and nutrition education opportunities, and supporting local and regional farmers.
After the show, attendees were treated to a special book signing session with Helena Andrews
, author of Bitch Is The New Black
, goodie bags filled with plenty of swag, and, naturally, plenty of mimosa refills.
