What a season! The busiest week in Philly for me is always Philly Fashion Week. There is so much to see, people to connect with and so much art to witness. Here is a little of the progression of Philly Fashion Week as it stands today. I still remember attending the first model castings on Broad Street for what would be this exact event many years later. I didn’t make the part but a true lesson was learned. We are all apart of bringing this industry together in its own unique way. This week is where hopeful designers are given the opportunity to show some of their long awaited designs and have a step in the door, be one step closer to their dreams. Philly Fashion week has two seasons, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. This year, some of the lucky designers that were able to showcase their designs include Prajje Oscar, Unsatisfied Fashion House, Freemen By Mickey and JD Collection. Through the designs shown in their shows, the audience was able to get an insight of what and who inspires them. A prime example would be the JD Collection, who clearly gave a futuristic vibe off with some off his Balmain inspired outfits. The Unsatisfied Fashion House line was inspired by some of today’s teen trends, rebel-like clothing with a hint of posh, a trend that I am sure we will see around not only this Summer but in the fall as well.
