Philly Events: Couture Lives at Philadelphia Couture Fashion Week

Philly Events: Couture Lives at Philadelphia Couture Fashion Week

Philadelphia isn’t exactly the first place you think of when you hear the word “couture”. We’re home to a lot of things, but a thriving couture community is not exactly one of them, at least, that’s what I thought before Sunday night. Philadelphia Couture Fashion Week is a celebration of local couture talent in Philadelphia and I was able to experience that up close and personal at Sunday’s finale show. As a member of the press I got a front row and behind the scenes look at designers featured throughout the week which include BET MOD (Happy Couture) Landa Styles Collection, Marle Originals, Cherish Seldon, Nje By Tahece and more.

Philly Photo Diary: The Market Place #2

Philly Photo Diary: The Market Place #2

Here's a look inside one of the safest, friendliest places for artists and musicians in the city of Philadelphia. The Marketplace is a monthly gathering of friends, musicians, and local artists. Hosted by two of the loveliest and talented people in this great city Hannah and John, The Marketplace is all about encouraging and supporting local artist - no matter what medium. After a hilariously unfortunate mix up with just about every printer/photo center in the greater Philadelphia area, I wasn't able to join in the fun with my zine. However, it did give me the opportunity to bob and weave through this show and take these pictures.

Philly Art Collective (7th Installment)

When it comes to experiencing art, Philadelphia is exactly where you want to be. Don't believe me? Well, you clearly didn't attend the 7th Philly Art Collective show that went down Friday, April 15th. From 7 pm to 11 pm some of the most talented artist from the greater Philadelphia Area convened for a celebration of art. As A Tribe Called Quest (RIP Phife Dawg) played in the background artist shared their paintings, sketches, zines, sculptures, prints, songs, and talents with a room full of excited art enthusiasts of all ages and races. If you're looking for art that's new, fresh, absolutely urban, and off the beaten path of the halls of museums, you're going to want to make it to the next installment, because this is where the next generation of great artists can be found. Check out some pictures from the event and be sure to follow Philly Art Collective on Instagram for details on the next show.
