I got a little behind with my work this summer, I thought that it would be an easy summer with lots of free time to catch up on events I photographed but did not post. That was not meant to be. Here’s an event I said I would go to but couldn’t make. I promised I would publish their photos. (It’s rare I do that)

U.S. Premiere of Brazilian Fashion Designer Marcia Ganem at the Kimmel Center –
Marcia Ganem’s fashion represents the soul of Brazil as she employs the talents of local Brazilian communities for varied cross-stitching, lace-making and beading techniques inherent to her designs; all the while, she remains true to her mission of environmental sustainability with recycled polyamide fibers incorporated into her lines. Her work has appeared on the fashion runways of Fashion Rio, part of the global seasonal fashion shows, as well as on the cover of high profile magazines, such as Vogue Brazil. High profile stars, such as Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson and Vera Fisher have worn her designs. Márcia Ganem serves as a high end representative of a cultural exchange of sister city Salvador, Brazil to Philadelphia.
