Philadelphia Fashion Week, a three-day fashion extravaganza, will take place on October 8-10, 2009 at the 23rd Street Armory (23rd between Market and Chestnut streets) in Philadelphia. The high-end, sustainable event will fuse the best contemporary brands, directionally independent designers and street wear labels from Philadelphia and around the globe.
Philadelphia Fashion Week will feature at least 15 runway shows to give fashionistas an inside peek into what’s in style for holiday 2009 and spring 2010. Each day will feature student, street wear and contemporary couture runway shows in addition to headlining concerts, dance performances, cuisine from area chefs, an open bar showcasing artisan cocktails and shopping at 12 pop-up boutiques.
“The concept behind Philadelphia Fashion Week is to invite residents and visitors to celebrate the vibrant fashion, food, and arts and culture scene in Philadelphia,” said Kristie Bergey, executive director of Philadelphia Fashion Week and partner of CMK Entertainment, Fashion Week’s event producer. “In a city known for its rich history, we are proud to make history by producing the first fashion week in Philadelphia.”
