Celebration of Philadelphia Collection with 75+ events
Aug '12
One-of-a-kind couture peplums, leather detail, slim-fit Windsor collars, and geometric prints will dress the storefronts of Philadelphia's most impressive retailers as the city celebrates the return of The Philadelphia Collection. Mayor Michael A. Nutter announced that the third annual weeklong series of fashion and style events will take over the city from Thursday, September 13 through Thursday, September 20, with Fashion's Night Out as the official "preview" event on September 6.  

Now in its fourth year, Fashion's Night Out, a one-night-only fashion extravaganza celebrated in more than 250 cities nationwide and more than 18 countries worldwide will return to New York City on September 6, 2012. This year, Philadelphia will join the global celebration created to highlight fashion and support retail with exciting events including designer appearances, celebrity guests, fashion shows and musical performances.

"Philadelphia is a fashion and shopping destination with cutting edge, emerging design talent," said Mayor Michael A. Nutter. "This year, the city's engagement in the worldwide celebration of Fashion's Night Out reflects our strong commitment to supporting Philadelphia's fashion and the retail community."

Founded in 2010 by the City of Philadelphia, Center City District, and Philadelphia Retail Marketing Alliance, The Philadelphia Collection promotes the city and all aspects of its fashion economy, including its impressive "collection" of retailers, designers, modeling agencies, design schools, and more. Nearly 75 events, spanning from large-scale "featured" runway shows and fashion presentations to smaller events including trunk shows and expert panel discussions, invite consumers to shop and embrace fall fashion.

"Since the Collection's inception, the city's burgeoning fashion and design community has gained worldwide recognition as a top fashion and shopping destination," said City Representative Melanie Johnson, Co-Chair of The Philadelphia Collection. "New programs have emerged dedicated to the continued growth of fashion and design in our city, including The Philadelphia Fashion Incubator at Macy's Center City and exciting collaborations like designer co-op US*U.S. and Skai Blue Show, showcasing the city's ripe talent and booming creative economy."

The emergence of talented new designers, the opening of new retailers boasting some of the world's best fashion brands, and thriving independent shop owners with a passion for all things style strengthen the landscape of Philadelphia fashion and design. The Collection brings these creative community members together in a week where collaborative events leave consumers begging for more and intimate small-scale events leave shoppers satiated with fall 2012 must-haves.

"The Philadelphia Retail Marketing Alliance was created four years ago with a goal of spotlighting Philadelphia as a top shopping and retail destination in order to enhance the quality and quantity of the city's retail offerings," said Michelle Shannon, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Center City District, Co-Chair of The Philadelphia Collection.
