House of Watha T: Meet Sherry

House of Watha T Street Fashion is an experimental collection of patron street fashion at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Neighborhood Library.  It is devoted to photographically documenting the sartorial narratives of patrons who visit the library. Please contact My Nguyen at my.nguyen@dc.gov for more information.

Meet Sherry.

Sherry

























Eighth-grader Sherry is a Watha T. Daniel/Shaw patron who brightens its stacks with her unique, bohemian flair for fashion. Toughening girly basics such as leggings and flats with a distressed army-green jacket, Sherry knows that by mixing it up, she channels what she calls the "unique" and "crazy" fashion ethos of her revered style icons, Nikki Minaj and Rihanna. Her trademark is the charming, fashion-forward headscarf she dons with confidence. Read more about her after the jump.
