Philadelphia Fashion Week

Media Title

Every year, Philadelphia combats its reputation as a city of fashion neophytes by hosting Philadelphia Fashion Week, a showcase for local designers heating up the scene and already ablaze global fashion houses. It’s easy to talk smack on Philadelphian style because of its, well, sheer visual evidence, but don’t overlook the blessed fiscal realism that’s so absent from New York. The opening night of this year’s Fashion Week (although at Wednesday-Saturday, it’s not quite a week) is all about the blissful convergence of style and accessibility. Eye-popping, candy-coated creations from global powerhouse Carmelita Couture will be showcased alongside beloved Philadelphia street denim purveyor Palmieri, while the “loud, ferocious, and sexy” sounds of Sarah Borrello and Self Help Revolver bring the noise. Art installations and local music acts round out this display of Philly style and innovation with a casual vibe that promises to bring a degree of both fashion and approachability to Philadelphia’s catwalks—and hopefully to its streets. -Claire Noble
