 Jimmy Contreras, VP of Vlahos Pr fashion department, Elizabeth Wellington, Phila Inquirer Fashion Writer and Waheedah, Owner, Why PR and Marketing. Thursday night Jimmy’s receiving a fashion style award from the Philly Fashion Week producers Kevin Parker & Kerry Scott,  (The extravaganza is produced by one of the region’s top modeling agencies, The FBH Agency.) along with other stylish peeps Michelle Shannon – Center City District, Rakia Reynolds – Skai Blue Media and Antione Johnson – House of Talent PA. One of the things I love most about the FBH duo is they promote models and fashion from the Philadelphia area, and they always do it first class. One of the first shows I ever attended in Philly was their event at the newly renovated City Hall courtyard about 4 years ago. Flawless. [unfortunately I won’t be able to attend this year as I have a gig, but I know it will be awesome.)
