Ean Williams: A fashion visionary

Ean Williams is a tireless advocate for fashion in the nation’s capital. He created DC Fashion Week to showcase the region’s thriving fashion scene.  By Nicole L. Gill

I had never used the scuba fabric before and loved how I could have texture and comfort with my designs.
— Ean Williams

Ean Williams, designer of Corjor International and Magnum Underwear collections, speaks to potential runway models during a recent DC Fashion Week audition. Videographer Nathaniel Council.

As part of the 27th season of DC Fashion Week in September, Ean Williams will show designs from his own Corjor International and Magnum Underwear collections. Williams said he “is exploring salmon, teal and ivory for color choices,” while utilizing more neoprene fabric mixed with lace.

Williams is proud of DCFW for being a platform that has launched models’ careers, including Nyle DiMarco, who won “America’s Next Top Model.” “We have some of the best of the best come … out of D.C.,” said Williams.

Fashion week will include collections from college, emerging, menswear and international couture designers. The International Couture Collection show will feature modesty fashion. Williams said DCFW was “the first major fashion week to have modesty fashion as a showcase.”

Williams said there’s value in the DCFW platform for models and designers. “What most people will take away (from DCFW),” he said, “is that the capital city is a growing fashion market attracting the most sought out retailers and designers, and that D.C. has a talented fashion industry.”
