Fashion Week: Philly Edition

The City of Brotherly Love welcomed me with open arms when I attended Philly Fashion Week during the last weekend in February. Style wasn’t taking a back seat just because rain was in the forecast, (we caught some great photos just before the rain decided to downpour on us.)

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:
