Philadelphia Launches Fashion Week

August 22, 2009 BY CAPSULESNEWS


We don’t know why Philadelphia would need a fashion week, but the folks over there have asked us to inform you that there will be one, beginning October 8-10 2009.  Philly Fashion Week is being organized by CMK Entertainment—a new venture comprised of  Charlie Smith of Vantage Photography; Michael Anderer, head buyer for Matthew Izzo and Kristie Bergey of the KB Experience. CMK expect 15 designers, including 9 Days, Brooklyn Royalty, Commonwealth,  Proper, Gar-De, Love Brigade, Parke & Ronen, Triple 5 Soul & Wrath Arcane

as well as local aspiring designers will participate in the 3 day event which will take place at the 23rd St Armory in Philadelphia.  "Philadelphia Fashion Week is about showcasing high fashion styles in an approachable, accessible setting," said Kristie Bergey, partner of CMK Entertainment. "We wanted this show to be about what we wear and what we buy in our city." (PhiladelphiaFashionWeek)
