Mariam Karim

Director of catering, W Hotel Washington

“Mariam’s use of accessories is unparalleled. She’ll wear beautiful bracelets up to her elbows on both arms or a bold Afghani necklace with a T-shirt and skinny jeans. She’s got a bit of an avant-garde edge. I’ve also never seen her in a pair of flat shoes. Ever.”

—André Wells, DC event and party planner
