We had the great pleasure of attending the Second Annual Philadelphia Fashion Week, and we have to say it was much different from any other Fashion Weeks that we have attended. It started off from where Philadelphia Fashion Week was going to be held which was at the 23rd Street Armory the building is such an incredible landmark it made us think of medieval times from the outside.
Then once we stepped inside it gave you a feeling of maybe a warehouse so different from Bryant Park, The Lincoln Center or for the Couture Fashion Week the Waldorf-Astoria. I knew right then and there we were going to experience something very different and somewhat refreshing. Once inside there were booths set-up for vendors and in the middle of the floor was a bar, then just past that was like an area where it could have been a backstage there was the runway and seating and then elevated above was the VIP area and performance stage. The venue was a little dark and had somewhat of a heavy feeling to it but I guess it also gave way to a little mystery of what we where about to be part of.
Philadelphia Fashion Week was presented by CMK Entertainment which is an Events Coordination Company and is owned and operated by Kristie Bergey, Charlie Smith and Michael Anderer. The company was established in 2008 and is based in Philadelphia and New York. They also partnered up with Meredith Lindemon (Publicist) of Meredith Communications which we had the pleasure of speaking with just prior to PFW.
Philadelphia Fashion Week also had some great sponsors and vendors that where also at the event and had booths set-up some of the Sponsors where: VitaminWater Zero, I Magazine, Q102, Verde just to mention a few (to see full-list of sponsors visit www.philadelphiafashionweek.org/sponsors.php) All Models where provided by Wilhelmina of Philadelphia.
