Philadelphia Fashion Week Vault Show 10/10/15


Hello! Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the VAULT show put together by Philadelphia Fashion Week. I attended as press and scored a front row seat at the show. The show was presented in a small intimate venue, the White Space at Crane Arts Old School. There were four designers who showed their collections: Ke Collection, Bishme Cromartie, Autumn Lin and Ayasa Afi.

Ke collection: This collection played around with masculine vs. feminine. There were a lot of different textures such as heavy woolens, tweed, lace, leather and tulle. All of the looks were very polished, like a refined businesswoman.

Bishme Cromartie: This collection featured vibrant pops of hot pink and blue against stark black and white prints. It almost reminded me of the fashion of the 80s.

Autumn Lin: Autumn Lin also showed her collection a few weeks ago at the Philly Fashion Week show I attended and I was happy to see her showing her designs again last night. I absolutely love her designs. Her designs have a very cutting edge, futuristic feeling to them. She experiments with 3-D silhouettes and how to use zippers as a work of art not just to serve the purpose of getting the garment on and off. With her use of sheer fabrics and stiffer fabrics, she also creates a contrast of hard and soft in her line. Her collection was definitely my favorite from last night.

Ayasa Afi: This collection was very light, very airy. Pale colors like pink and off white were particularly prominent in this collection. There was also an abundance of watercolor floral prints. The use of floral prints and pale colors contributed to an element of femininity. The femininity of the collection was further enhanced with silhouettes that showed off the female figure such as backless dresses and plunging necklaces.

  2. The futon bunk bed consists of a futon on the bottom and a normal bunk on top. During the day, the futon can be used as a sofa for watching TV, reading or just hanging around. bunk bed with slide

  3. If you find you are not sleeping well it may be due to an old and uncomfortable bed. How much time we spend in bed can affect its durability. If the mattress is lumpy and the springs are too bouncy it might be time to go shopping. We also change as we age. A person who has once slept best on a soft mattress may be more suited to a harder mattress later in life, or, vice versa. Weight gain and weight loss can all effect how we react to our mattresses. A mattress might be perfect for one person but if two people start using it there could be difficulties. Studies have shown that beds can lose up to 70% of their original hardiness over 10 years. fleet mattress
