Magically, store owner Joan Shepp, turned her Walnut Street boutique into a New York Fashion Week-style runway, Wednesday night. Camera's flashed. Fashionistas gasped. Models skulked. The front rows were filled with Rittenhouse Square's Who's Who at this amazing presentation that featured the boutique's hottest European designer lines including designers Dries Van Noten, Marni andYohji Yamamoto. High fashion has parked itself in Center City this week. What do you think about all the fashion events in town? Is Philly becoming a fashion destination in its own right?
