Washington, DC (June 13, 2011) – AllSaints, the acclaimed British fashion brand known for its unique offering of vintage-inspired, directional clothing, announces its first Washington D.C. store location.

In addition, the brand opened 14 concessions in Bloomingdale’s nationwide and AllSaints plans to continue its expansion in the next 3-5 years.
AllSaints looks forward to opening its doors in D.C’s Georgetown area this July 8, 2011. Located at 3235 M Street, N.W., Washington, D.C., the store measures approximately 5,040 square-feet-trade. AllSaints Georgetown will offer a full range of accessories and apparel collections for men and women.
AllSaints stores have a distinct, individual feel and identity with impressive store décor details such as wood paneled floors, ram skulls (the brand’s logo) and vintage fixtures such as printing presses, looms and Singer sewing machines.
The Georgetown location boasts two-levels and features architectural details such as 16 foot high exposed faux-finished bar and joist trusses, illuminated sewing machines visible from street-level.
AllSaints has an international portfolio of over 80 stand-alone stores and 70 concessions. AllSaints is present in some of the world’s most fashion-conscious cities including London, Paris, Berlin, Antwerp, Barcelona and Moscow.
AllSaints was founded in 1994 as a menswear brand; AllSaints quickly gained a reputation as the destination for directional, vintage inspired design. Available in some of the world’s most exclusive department stores including Harrods and Harvey Nichols, it wasn’t long before they branched into the womenswear market in A/W 98. 2005 welcomed an expansion from the boutique chain of the 90’s to a leading retailer globally.
