PhilaU Student Designs Hit the Philadelphia Fashion Week Runway

Student designs hit the runway Oct. 7 at the second Philadelphia Fashion Week, which runs Oct. 6 to 9 at the 23rd Street Armory in Philadelphia and showcases some of the biggest names in Philadelphia fashion.

The Fashion Industries Association (FIA) produced the PhilaU show again this year and played a role behind the scene for all of the shows.

“We are very excited to be part of Philadelphia Fashion Week, featuring our young designers who offer an innovative and fresh point of view,” said Clara Henry, director of PhilaU’s Fashion Design Program. “This event presented a fantastic opportunity to showcase the creativity and talent of our students for the industry and design community.”

The student show included designs from Philadelphia University, along with Drexel University, the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Moore College of Art and Design and the University of Delaware.

The event showcased the collections of area students and emerging designers. More than twenty professional designers displayed their collections during the four-day event. Retailers set up pop-up shops to offer attendees the opportunity to take some runway-ready looks home.
