Fashion Yards Brings Local Styles to Navy Yard Streets

Trucks and bright-colored school buses packed with clothes descended on Navy Yard on Sunday for the Fashion Yards shopping event.

Mobile vendors sold new and used clothes, as well as jewelry, furniture, candles and art supplies on Tingey Street SE near 4th Street SE. If there was a theme to the afternoon hosted by the developers behind The Yards, it was keeping up with the latest styles while on a budget.

Vendor James Hackley said he launched his clothing business after he lost 50 pounds in four months and his designer clothes no longer fit. He gradually bought new clothes for himself and got so good at it that he started his own boutique, Bespoke Not Broke.

“I lost some pretty fly gear, so I’ll never pay a lot for clothing again,” he said on Sunday, surrounded by Versace and Gucci menswear.
