Birthed from the same spirit of those who awake with a passion to move forward, reject the sidelines, and do what they've dreamed, DISTRICT of CLOTHING was created to encourage positive messaging, local pride, and a "can-do" mentality. We triumphantly embrace the creative, entrepreneurial, and community dreamer/doer spirit blossoming throughout our communities and we intend to spread the message across as many districts as possible.
We are a District of dreamers, doers, change makers, and future history makers.
It’s no secret our dynamic is evolving—our nation is inclusively expanding to embrace the growing and powerful community full of change makers and inventive souls—and we are well-aligned to provide inspiration and apparel for the evolution. Our items are designed for comfort, style and for anyone who goes to bed looking forward to the dawning of a new day.
Dreamers keep dreaming. Doers keep doing. Change makers and future history makers know that we need you. Let's go. Let's make something happen.
Behind the Brand
Small, black- and woman-owned, the brand was created in December of 2014 by Dionna Dorsey, founder of Dionna Dorsey Design, a creative boutique. She is continually inspired by the those who daily push through obstacles to affect change within themselves, and in their communities. "When your passion meets your purpose you're pretty much unstoppable." — Dionna M. Dorsey
Dionna has been featured in the Washingtonian magazine for her personal style (Style Setters), MarieClaire (What It Costs to Be Me – The D.C. Sophisticate) in recognition of her entrepreneurship and on We, The Creatives, Mayor Muriel Bowser's initiative supporting the District's creative community.
