Philadelphia Fashion Alliance Launch Event 10/11/15


Hello! Yesterday, I attended the launch of the Philadelphia Fashion Alliance held at the Art Alliance in Philadelphia. The event showcased seven Philadelphia fashion designers' work. Well-dressed fashion attendees mingled, sipping on mimosas while browsing through the designs.

A quick shot of a few of the breath-takingly beautiful models hanging around the gallery. Several of the models were fellow students in the Philadelphia area.

A snapshot of the Senpai + Kohai presentation. The designers behind this collection, Melissa Choi and Pia Panaligan, both graduated from Philadelphia University a few years ago. Both designers were incredibly well-dressed and I thought it was pretty cool to see graduates from my school making such a major impact in the fashion industry. 

This collection took my breath away. The use of interesting textures and prints contributed to a boho luxe vibe that I'm in love with. It's very free-spirited but in a refreshingly hip way.

The Victoria Wright Designs collection was another one of my favorites at the event. While browsing through the collection, I happened to start talking to the designer, Victoria Wright. She looked so incredibly charming in her own designs that at first, I mistook her for another one of the models. I loved hearing about her line and examining the incredible detail of her garments. 

Vintage, feminine designs inspired her collection and I couldn't take my eyes off her black and white pieces. I especially loved her sheer skirts with floral detailing; they're so versatile!

I managed to snap a quick photo of Jovan O'Connor with her collection. Jovan O'Connor was another Philadelphia University graduate that was showing her designs at the event and I enjoyed chatting with her. The colors of her collection really drew me in; she had a variety of brighter pieces as well as more neutral colors. For her Spring/Summer 2016 collection, she was inspired by Brazil which can be seen in the colors chosen.
