If this doesn’t convince the fashion industry to take DC more seriously then we don’t know what will!  Washington DC has been named the country’s most ‘Shopaholic City’.  According to Bundle.com, which used data from the US Government spending report, every month district residents outspend every other city in the US….way to go Fashiontonians!  The report concluded that the national average for monthly clothing spending is $142.08, while people living in DC spend nearly $263 a month on clothes.  Bundle.com reported, “The most shopaholic city: Washington D.C., our nation’s capital.” Travel guide Fodor’s says that the number of designer boutiques in the city is on the rise, and tourists can’t resist picking up a few souvenirs when visiting the place where our nation’s laws are passed, including African-inspired clothing, accessories, and art. And as we all know, D.C. is a metro area run by people in suits, and suits aren’t cheap, especially if they’re designer. And you can bet on seeing very fine suits in Congress — half of our leaders in Congress are millionaires.”
