DURKL, the fashion voice of DC’s underground, helped to organize a community celebration on Sunday in advance of the city’s other Memorial Day diversions.
“This thing is gonna get crazy,” said Cole Sharp, one of the brothers behind the local trendsetting brand, as the block party started ramping up. “But it’s not about our brand (DURKL). It’s about Washington DC coming together. And what a perfect day for it!”
As temperatures topped 90 degrees, the parking lot near DURKL’s warehouse filled with the Sweetgreen Sweetflow yogurt truck, the Fojol Bros. meals on wheels and VitaCoCo, combining to create a pop hipster party to kick off the summer — complete with yard games and blaring tunes from the likes of DC’s Fort Knox Five and DJ Underdog.
