ART

by RON DAVID

Ron David Edwards, based in Washington DC, is the Owner and Creative Director of RON DAVID, launched in 2015.  Inspired by the runway persuasions of the world, and specially curated for the conservative fashionista, RON DAVID offers a special retail experience that will provide one of a kind, statement pieces that will enhance every wardrobe.

A graduate of Howard University, Ron spent several years within the fashion industry primarily as a senior luxury retail buyer, celebrity stylist and personal shopper.  Ron realized that there are many women desiring the experience of having unique, special items of clothing, but who aren’t in a position to do so in the same market.  He saw an opportunity to provide runway inspired clothing, with exclusivity, but at an attainable price.

RON DAVID’s collection is very diverse.  There are pieces in all sizes that most women can wear.  He has limited numbers of these items so that you won’t see the same thing everywhere being worn by everyone.  In addition to a very affordable price point, I think women in DC are going to really like the style of his clothing.  He has items that are work appropriate, casual, and that can be worn to fancy events.  His collection is very interesting and extremely fashionable.  I am thrilled for the RON DAVID debut!

RON DAVID x POLITIQUETTE

I discovered RON DAVID the day before I launched Politiquette.  He had a temporary pop-up shop in Union Market.  I was so nervous about launching my own site and came across his beautiful designs learning that he too was just launching a new business and brand.  Somehow it seemed like the stars aligned in that moment, it was a good reminder that I needed to be confident and put myself put there, just look at what RON DAVID created.  It also made me think that we would need to collaborate, the timing was just to serendipitous.

I feel very lucky that Ron allowed me to style his clothing for his marketing purposes.  I had so much fun dressing up in his gorgeous designs and interpreting how they can be worn, especially for life in DC.   What is great about these looks is that I literally would be able to attend any type of event wearing one of his designs.  That is a really special attribute of his collection.

LAB 1270

#Lab1270 is a new retail and creative space at Union Market that houses multiple retailers, including RON DAVID.  Many of the stores in this innovative space are DC based and offer unique apparel, decor and food.  Lab 1270 just opened this past week on November 14.  I highly recommend you make a point to check it out.

Some of you may be familiar with this location from J.D. Ireland’s pop-up shop earlier this year.
