Colorful sportswear dominated Philadelphia University's annual student fashion show Sunday night at its new location in Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center.
The end-of-year collections boasted beautiful ensembles styled from tissue-thin fabrics (a bit of chiffon here, a hint of tulle there) in pastel shades and primary colors.
Satiny tuxedo-style pants shined, while A-line dresses featured color-blocking and frayed edges, which gave the groupings a current look.
As part of the weekend-long celebration of all things Patrick Kelly - in honor of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's latest retrospective, "Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love" - six students presented pieces inspired by the designer's message of love and diversity. Kelly was honored posthumously Sunday night with the university's Legend of Design Award.
