Grab your most fashionable outfit and dust off those stilettos you wear once a year because it’s fashion week in Philadelphia! And new this year – something that’ll surely attract attention – is the Philly Small Business Fashion Week, which is a week of runway shows and fashion events that shine the spotlight on local boutiques and emerging designers.
Produced by Dawane Cromwell of Embacy Entertainment, the goal of Philly Small Business Fashion Week is to provide an avenue for small business owners and entrepreneurs to market, promote, and showcase their designs directly to consumers. Oh and get this, most of the featured looks can be purchased directly off the runway!
What makes this event even more appealing – especially to those with a philanthropic heart – is that all of its proceeds go to Jaden’s Voice, an organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals and families impacted by autism. Philly Small Business Fashion Week, which is going on now through Saturday, February 21 at 7:00 p.m. each evening, is being held at The Kairos Room (3502 Scotts Lane, Building #4 in Philadelphia).
