Women. We are stronger together.


Everywhere we look – magazines, blogs, Instagram feeds, we see it. Feminism is at the forefront of our current news and media channels; ~ the future is female, women united, nasty woman, #standwithPP ~ and Beauty Within is rocking to this vibe! Women helping women; That is what Beauty Within DC is all about.


Every year, T•H•E Artist Agency collaborates with Beauty Within DC, and together we aim to bring love, confidence, empowerment, and strength to women and mothers in our community. For over a decade, we have created and filled hundreds of hand-embellished tote bags full of generously donated beauty products. These tote bags are distributed to women in need on Mother’s Day. Our intention is to rise up and support those who support us — mothers.

We hope to make these women feel confident, supported, and loved.


We humbly request donations of any beauty and toiletry items you are able to contribute. We welcome all unused beauty products and small gifts you may have at home or work, including hotel toiletries, gifts with purchase, samples from makeup or skin care lines, and swag bag contents. Lightly used or new books and magazines are also appreciated.

Donations can be mailed or hand delivered to T·H·E Artist Agency or Langley High School where the Fashion Marketing teacher, Tricia Poythress, and her gracious students have continually volunteered to decorate and prepare the contents of each Beauty Within DC bag.

Saks Jandel to Close

A Washington D.C. luxury clothing and bridal boutique that survived generations of world affairs, the Depression, and economic recessions, will soon see its last day.

It is like a walk through Washington D.C.’s history, a glimpse into our city’s fashion evolution. While people might say that the District doesn’t have a foot in the fashion industry, Saks Jandel is a strong testament to prove them wrong.

Peter Marx, son of Ernest Marx, is the fourth-generation president of his family’s 128-year-old business. He is also the one overseeing its end as his focus shifts toward his real estate business..   

T•H•E Artist Agency is proud to have partnered with Saks Jandel. We’ve collected a series of snapshots, as a tribute to our friends and collaborators at  Saks Jandel, of fashion shows our Models took pride in walking and our Wardrobe, Hair, and Makeup artists loved styling.

Sondra Hoffman – A DC Mover & Shaker!

Our shining star for over seven years, Sondra Hoffman, T•H•E’s head booker, is featured on this year’s Young & the Guest List Rising Stars 40 & Under.

THE list proves that politics isn’t the only game in town, and the Fashion Industry carries it’s own power.





From members of Congress and White House staffers to athletes, reporters, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and public relations powerhouses, it’s never hard to find people to add to our yearly compilation of the region’s movers and shakers age 40 and under. That’s due to the simple fact that there are so many younger people doing great things here.

We photographed close to 50 individuals for our 11th annual Young & the Guest List, which highlights more than 300 stars in their fields.

This is an election year, so many are involved in the political world. You’ll find portraits of and interviews with journalists who cover Capitol Hill and the White House, as well as political players on both sides of the aisle. Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell and Ruben Gallego posed for us, as did their Republican colleagues, Reps. Will Hurd and Carlos Curbelo. New House Speaker Paul Ryan’s press secretary, AshLee Strong, also joined the throng along with the Republican National Committee’s Chief of Staff Katie Walsh and several officials now serving in the final year of the Obama administration.

Our list also proves that politics isn’t the only game in town. We’ve included chefs and restaurateurs – two of whom appeared on the latest season of Bravo’s “Top Chef.”  We showcase artists and photographers, doctors and philanthropists (like Bobby Gill, found of Cupid’s Undie Run and resent Runner’s World cover star) and top athletes from the Washington Capitals, D.C. United and Washington Mystics.

 It’s a well-rounded, accomplished, inspiring and, dare we say, FUN group that defines youth, power and success in our great city.
