Phasion Phest Makes a Splash

This year, Phasion Phest organizer, Sharon Phillips Waxman, cleverly incorporated Superheroes in her 15th annual style extravaganza, thanks to the students at The Art Institute, who drew the comic book style backgrounds! Yay for them! The event was held this year at Market Street's Loews Hotel. And Philadelphians got a chance to see the latest and most wearable fall fashions. Some of the featured boutiques included: South Moon Under and Les Richards in Center City as well as Bloomingdale's in King of Prussia Mall. The show was a nice cross section of the styles available right here in Philly. The most eyecatching presentation, however, was Zinman Furs. We thought the models were hot! And the idea of wrapping up in a soft fur is irresistable on the soon to be cold Philadelphia winters. Are you ready for the cold weather? I'm not.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
