Philadelphia Fashion Week 2015 – Geno’s Cheesesteaks & Couture

Monday night Philadelphia Fashion Week 2015 kicked off at Sugar House with a show and a party.

   Philadelphia Fashion Week celebrates 10 years putting on empowering, entertaining fashion shows. Kevin Parker had a vision for Philly Fashion Week when he was just 18 and partnered with fashion guru, Kerry Scott, to create FBH .

Last night fashion fans gathered in South Philly across the street from Geno’s Steaks, one of the sponsors of the Philadelphia Fashion Week 2015, to enjoy the second night of fashion this time al fresco as I saw some guests enjoy a few wiz wits as they waiting for the show to start. To start the evening off an acapella group – In The Mix entertained the crowd with a few songs.

 The place was packed by the time Geno Vento greeted the fans, and thanked them for coming.

The best attribute of the FBH fashion show they use models who might not normally have been given the chance to walk a runway as well as giving local designers a chance for their designs to be seen.
Councilman Mark Squilla came out to support FBH

When Kharisma McIlwaine walks your runway you know it’s going to be special. She’s beautiful, classy and one of the most stylish women to walk the streets of Philadelphia.
I ran into a few Fox 29 viewers who stopped me to say hi. Robyn and Matt Grant caught Geno on Fox 29 on Tuesday morning and wanted to stop by and check out the show as their kids enjoyed One Direction at the Linc.
 It’s always nice to see Dr. Suji Hamilton, Fr. Thanuja Hamilton and David Weiss of Freeman’s Auction House. The later two who just got engaged – Congrats!!
 The 2nd act of the fashion show was a bit more racier
