#DCFASHIONWEEK 2019: Dur Doux Fashion
Our final #DCFW feature highlights one of DC's hottest emerging fashion brands - Dur Doux. Led by creative director + designer Najla Burt and co-founder Cynthia Burt, the French-inspired line showcases an affordable, wearable lifestyle brand with avant-garde sensibility.
In other words: edgy, unique pieces inspired by world travels that you can blend with your everyday wardrobe, or rock for your most glamorous evening events. It's easy to see why this brand is gaining traction off the runway as well. The Dur Doux team works with celebrity & fashion clients to find a perfect match from their collections, whether it's a one-of-a-kind evening gown or a couture-inspired ready-to-wear piece.
After graduating from Parsons School of Design, Najla launched her DC-based brand in 2013 with the help of her mother, Cynthia. The two share a symbiosis that inspires their fashion, and spills over to other collaborations as well. They're currently partnering with @taylormadepolish on a line of vegan nail polish and have plans to expand the line in the near future.
Najla best summed up their approach to fashion + business in this quote from last year's @capitolfilemag "In Style" feature when she said, “We have a passion and fierce drive to influence the future of DC fashion and style through offering exclusive fashion product offerings and forging alliances and collaborations that strengthen the quality, value and design aesthetics of fashion available in greater DC.”
Dur Doux debuted two collections in their own show at #NYFW last fall, following a successful showing in @macys Red Dress Collection that spring. This year, they owned DC's fashion week with their "Colors of Hydrangeas" collection, at the DC Fashion Week Hall of Fame Fashion Awards show on Feb 22.
Next weekend, Dur Doux hosts a debut party for their Ready to Wear spring-summer line, featuring a full wardrobe presentation of fun, chic, exceptional designs. We can guarantee you'll find at least one piece you can't live without - get ready to shop!
