Philadelphia Fashion lovers are you ready for The Philadelphia Collection 2013? September 18th (Next Week!) marks the beginning of the fashion events here in Philly and runs until the following Wednesday September 25th. Philly’s collection differs from other fashion weeks because it embraces the current fall fashion that customers see in the storefront windows right now! The greatest part… almost all of the events are FREE and open to the public.
“Philadelphia’s fashion and retail landscape is continuously evolving in a very exciting way. It seems every day our vibrant neighborhoods are welcoming new retailers and design talent—from national brands and independent boutiques to young designers emerging from our spectacular academic institutions. It illustrates for us the city’s fertile ground for innovation and a healthy creative economy,” said Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter.
“The series of events encompasses various large-scale featured runway shows and fashion presentations peppered with smaller events and showcases—all packaged together under one umbrella as The Philadelphia Collection. Featured events will include the Macy’s Fall Fashion Show featuring the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator, Nicole Miller’s XIX Most Fashionable Women in Philadelphia, the 20 the annual Phashion Phest, The Rittenhouse Row Fall fashion Crawl, Fashion Saturday at The Oval and more.”
