Event Coverage: The Vault Show by Philly Fashion Week


On Sunday, April 24 I attended The Vault Show presented by the founders on Philly Fashion Week. I spoke with Philly Fashion Week co-founder Kerry Scott who told me the show is designed be an intimate, up close look at the awesome work of a few local designers. Rather than being a prelude or epilogue to PFW, he said The Vault Show is promoted as a stand alone show. He and co-founder Kevin Parker hope to take it on the road someday so they can showcase other regional and national designers.

The show highlighted six designers with looks ranging from itsy bitsy teeny weeny speedos for men to magical wonderland bridal attire. It was held 2300 Arena which was same location of February's Philly Fashion Week. I thoroughly enjoyed the intimate setting. It was scaled down from PFW, but still a fabulous display of some Philly based design powerhouses. The show had a high fashion feel with low key, conversational vibe. Each designer came out to say a few words after their turn on the runway, which I thought was a nice touch.

Since it was a smaller setting I (or rather my photog hubby) was able to catch the majority of the looks that came down the runway. Some of those goodies are included in this post. Let me take the opportunity to say this...wherever you live there's a fashion scene either in your city or somewhere nearby. If there's any way possible for you to go out and support local designers, do it.  Whether it's attending a show, going to their showrooms, or ordering from them online, support your local dream chasers who are trying to make the world a little more fashionable day by day.

Here's how I'd sum up these designers' collection:
