Philadelphia Fashion Incubator


Tuesday, December 13th was a day for making new changes and that change is in the fashion world of Philadelphia. At Macy's in Center City, a press conference was held to talk about the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator. It is the 1st of its kind and many supporters of the project came out to the event that is in hopes of becoming a resource for the fashion industry. Urban Outfitters is one of the projects main sponsors and other Philadelphia based companies. The goal of the fashion incubator is to bring more and better retail in center city and to become a nurturing environment for fashion businesses. The project took 2 years to complete going back to September 2009 with the focus being towards the city of Philadelphia retail and fashion collection. Mayor Michael Nutter spoke about the project and stated that the city recognizes fashion and wants to invite other businesses to be apart of what Forbes Magazine names the 6th best city for fashion. Lisa Cunns who is the executive producer of the project spoke as well and is determined to make Philadelphia the number one best city for fashion rather than number 6. Fashion exists everywhere and the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator will make fashion become an essential part of our lives.

Walk the Talk Event


Saturday, December 10th was a celebration of the art of fashion and accessories at the Walk The Talk event in Philadelphia. The event was a collaboration of Young Hip & Chic, Can Ya Heel Me? And Showroom77 that brought in a plethora of artistic people. The event was beautiful: fashionable clothes, stylish accessories, amazing food, giveaways, and free shoes! This was a great networking event for models, fashion designers, and artists. The event shined light on the importance of bloggers and their impact on the media. Bloggers from Philadelphia, New York, DC, and New Jersey came out to the event. One interesting thing was the fact that this event was the idea of 16 year fashion blogger, Tweety Elitou of Young Hip & Chic! She is the youngest fashionista in Philadelphia who is making BIG moves. She is very inspiring and doing events like the Walk The Talk is only the beginning for her. She embraces her culture and has a strong passion in fashion. Overall, the event was a great experience and just being around unique people with the same passion was a blessing in its self.
