FBH Philly Fashion Week Celebrates It's 7th Season in Style!


On Friday, Feb. 24, FBH The Agency hosted Philly Fashion Week’s seventh season in the Crane Arts building in Northern Liberties.  

The event was divided into two main days, The Ready-to-Wear Fashion Show on Friday, February 24th, and Couture on Saturday, February 25th. I always love attending Philly Fashion Week because it allows Philly’s fashionista’s to show what they’re made of. 

The organizers of FBH Philly Fashion Week always do a great job with their display and presentation. The catering service and bar allowed the event’s attendees to relax and socialize in the lobby area outside of the runway show; local vendors displayed their jewelry, shoes and nail designs and more. 

The first fashion event was the Ready-to-Wear Fashion Show. The lines spotlighted were an excellent contrast of urban and preppy, “ivy league” looks. Lines that appealed to the urban audience, included Street Mode, and Banana Republic’s “A Weekend at the Hamptons” appealed to the more clean cut, preppy fashionista type. 

One of the things I love about Philly Fashion Week is that the runway shows appeal directly to consumers. There were pieces that made you want to buy it off the models’ back as they were walking down the runway. 

The urban inspired opener, Street Mode, included sexy, curve-hugging, skin-baring designs. Street Mode’s models including the typical petite girl and the curvier, average-shaped girl, which I thought showed the versatility of the designs. 
Delaware designer, Keiko Myrtice and Gregory J. may have been my favorite designers of the night. The designs highlighted women’s bodies with smooth waistlines with extravagant shoulder pieces. Several outfits featured asymmetrical dress with very elaborate designs on the sleeves and arms. 
Philadelphia designer Leah Delfiner, creator of Pretty Pretty Rebel, definitely wowed the crowd with her loud, punk-inspired collection. The rocker look is definitely becoming more and more appealing to the urban market and I was very pleased that the organizers included her in the show. 
LAS Swimwear made mouths drops and drool for obvious reasons. The first swimsuit was a red men’s string bikini. The men’s line had several broad short-style swimsuits; in addition to several square cut and brief styles (is the new style less swimsuit coverage for men?). The women’s line featured bikinis and sexy, cutout one pieces.
Banana Republic’s “A Weekend at the Hamptons” displayed a Hampton’s inspired clothing spread. The clean lines and neutral colors represented a clean, preppy look. 
Designer Mariel Rojo's peices included neon and pastel color designs. I especially loved the color-blocking she used with soft colors. 
Another one of my favorites of the night was Trisha Will. Her designs consisted of a clean, sophisticated look with soft whites and silver. I loved everything from the gorgeous cutout designs to the neatly press creases in the wide leg pants. Wonderful!
