“I consider D.C. the capital of creativity, but what actually has locked me into D.C. is the people.”
FOR THE LOVE OF D.C. What a year it’s been. We’re looking back on a fabulous 2022, from the introduction of new issue themes like Urban Adulting, Adventures in the DMV and The Experimental Issue to revived and revamped staples of our annual editorial calendar including Hustle and The New Wave of D.C. Fashion. We are quickly approaching the three-year mark of our inaugural District Fray issue, which debuted in March 2020. It’s near and dear to our hearts for many reasons, chief among them that our friend and collaborator, No Kings Collective’s Brandon Hill, illustrated our “For the Love of D.C.” cover. It seemed only fitting to breathe new life into that iconic work of art fit for a mural (maybe one day!) for our last issue of the year. We’re celebrating all of our favorite people, places and things in the city this year throughout the issue. I also had the pleasure of interviewing some of the cultural connectors helping D.C.’s creative scene thrive including Events DC’s new president and CEO, Angie Gates, and style icons and patrons of the arts José Alberto Uclés and Tom Noll. Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season, and thank you so much for your continued support in keeping our magazine and creative community healthy and thriving. We’ll see you in the New Year!
