Fed Fashion Week Lookbook: 2021 Collection Recap

And just like that, it’s a wrap for our 4th annual #FedFashionWeek campaign! From September 8 - 14, you joined us for some behind-the-scenes looks of the latest and greatest in government fashion. Thank you to all of the agencies who showcased the functional fed fashions that help public servants provide everyday services for the American people.

Originally shared on Twitter & LinkedIn, reminisce below on some highlights from the Performance.gov team & many others at this year’s catwalk. One thing is for sure, public service never goes out of style – check out the #FedFashionWeek hashtag to see why!
