Washington In Bloom
Each April, residents of Washington D.C. and visitors from around the world celebrate the arrival of spring at the National Cherry Blossom Festival, as the trees surrounding the Tidal Basin and monuments come to life with delicate, pink flowers. Established in 1912 when the mayor of Tokyo gave 3,000 Yoshino cherry trees to the U.S. capital, the event now draws over 1.5 million people to the city every year. This spring, our stylist Isa S. was among the visitors on the festival’s final weekend. She brought along her camera for an early-morning stroll around the mall and waterfront, focusing on details like scattered petals and knotty, century-old branches.
