Philly Fashion Week Experience 2017

Continuing in it’s 11th year of operation, the city of Brotherly Love showcases national & international designers in an effort to strengthen the influence and success of designers in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. Founders Kevin Parker & Kerry Scott have created a platform that has reached over 5,000 people annually, building Philadelphia’s fashion community, featuring and supporting local, national and international retailers and independent fashion designers, and highlight a platform for amazing eclectic and diverse talent in & out of Philadelphia.

Philly Fashion Week Experience 2017

In efforts to embody Carrie Bradshaw, I had the pleasure of attending two of the events: The Business of Fashion Panel: Fashion through the Ages and the RUNWAY II show. Panelist Elizabeth Wellington, Mickey Boardman, Fern Mallis, Clare Sauro, and Heather Crowell (respectively shown below), shared their insight, perspectives, and experience to us bloggers and designers during the discussion. Their advice can be useful to various career occupations:

  • Define your Voice

  • Stay your Course

  • Be Committed 

  • Be Resourceful (use the internet to your advantage)

  • Be Yourself 

The RUNWAY II show was the highlight of my day. Sitting front row (in the press section of course), I felt like a true fashionista in her glory as I got to critic and be in awe over the collections that hit the runway. I couldn’t pick just one photo, so check out my experience down below:

Style Conversations

What better way to spend a Friday afternoon in one of the fashion capitals of the world, New York City, mingling and dining on Thai cuisine with some inspiring, motivational, and fashionable women discussing the fashion industry, everyday obstacles, and how to persevere through all of it.

Style Conversations is a series of luncheons in various cities to promote Sara Jones’s new book “The PlayBook To Essential Style”. The book covers many topics that will teach readers basic styling techniques to build a stylish and chic wardrobe. The playbook is all-inclusive with style advice, designing tips, and insight that emphasizes on self-expression through fashion and the importance of having fun with what you wear. The Playbook to Essential Style covers: Staple – essential pieces every wardrobe should have, dress codes, where to shop…and so much more! Within these pages, you will learn, build, and explore your essential style!

I have to highlight one chapter that caught my attention, which was dress code. The book features 10 different fashion styles and the specific events they are deemed for. I’m so glad she mentioned, business formal, business casual, and dressy casual! They coincide with Chic on Wall St. so well!.

While the luncheon was to promote “PlayBook To Essential Style”, it brought together several unique women passionate about similar topics. Designer/stylist, Sara Crawford-Jones of fashion brand Anara Original and published Author of The Playbook to Essential Style led the dialogue by discussing various topics of fashion, personal branding, owning success, or handling business. This private event provided us with the opportunity to network, pitch business ideas, and exchange sound advice that we could all benefit from.

In a beautiful restaurant filled with beautiful individuals inside and out, sharing an abundance of wisdom, how could you not leave there feeling more inspired and motivated? I gained more knowledge on industry rundowns, ways to be more authentic and consistent on my social media, and more comfort in knowing what I’m doing is beneficial and can leave a lasting impression on others. It was truly an honor to be hand-picked for this opportunity (even though we were extremely hot traveling around Times Square lol). Thank you Sara for allowing me to be apart of your pilot event!

Interested in attending the next Style Conversation event? The private event will take place on December 18th in Delaware. Be a part of this Stylish conversation, network, learn, and share.  To request an invitation or details for a Style Conversation near you visit www.saracjones.com.

“Style is ultimately about self-expression—reflecting your inner beauty onto the outside and sharing it through style choices by using a simple foundation and building onto it.” – Sara Crawford-Jones
