Every year, designers and fashionistas city-wide congregate for a weekend full of colorful jewelry, clothing and couture. Philadelphia has steadily been making its mark as a fashion-conscious city with its eclectic mix of the avant garde and the wearable. This year, dozens of designers showed off their wares, culminating in three extravagant fashion shows during the last weekend in February.
Philadelphia Fashion Week 2013 kicked off to a glamorous start at the Crane Arts Building in Northern Liberties with its Accessories show, featuring an array of Philadelphia accessories designers.
From the delicate to the funky, there was something for everyone, including Eco-conscious jewelry from Kevin Molnar Designs and blinged-out shoes from designer Jermaine Pratt. Philadelphia’s finest gathered to shop, socialize, and admire the various forms of wearable art.
