A MOST UN­FASH­ION­ABLE WASHINGTON

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

The na­tion’s cap­i­tal has long been crit­i­cized by fash­ion­istas for stuffy suits and sen­si­ble shoes. But now comes a Global Lan­guage Mon­i­tor anal­y­sis re­veal­ing just how lousy Washington’s fash­ion im­age is, this based on press men­tions from 375,000 print, online and so­cial media news sources. Us­ing spe­cial­ized com­puter soft­ware, the Texas-based re­search group an­a­lyzed meta­data on the trend­ing public fash­ion pres­ence among 56 of the world’s large cities. Not sur­pris­ingly, Paris ranked No. 1 and New York City No. 2. Lon­don was third, fol­lowed by Los An­ge­les, Rome, Mi­lan, Barcelona, Ber­lin, Madrid and Tokyo.

But alas, poor Washington. Keep those sen­si­ble shoes handy. The city is ranked 53, only best­ing Abu Dhabi and Seoul.
