A Decade of Philly Style Magazine Parties in Photos….
Still celebrating PhillyChitChat’s 10th Anniversary. The days are winding down and I still need to showcase Best Dressed of the Decade, Best Events of the Decade and ChitChat’s 10 career moments. When reviewing the photos I’ve taken over the decade I kept coming across great moments that occurred at Philly Style Magazine parties.
Tonight is PSM’s annual hot list party, so I thought I’d list a few moments that made a difference in Philly Chit Chat’s career. Nicole Cashman has represented PSM for the decade I’ve been covering the scene, and she credentialed me for the first PSM party, after Dana Spain sold the magazine to Niche Media ushering the magazine into the next century of luxury living.
Congrats to the man, John Collabelli who has been at the helm of Philly Style Magazine from it’s inception over a decade ago
As I wrote in 2008, a few months after Mayor Nutter took office.
TGIF was more than that last Friday evening as Philadelphia Style Magazine kicked off the re-launching of their magazine; the party was held at CITY HALL in the courtyard, that’s right PHILADELPHIA CITY HALL COURTYARD. City Hall is now hosting events again after the long dark period of vacancy, the lights are on, the veil has been lifted, the building has been returned to its citizens. (source)
The Philly Style Mag White Party in 2009
Great to run into Paul Smith over the years. When I was a paralegal, he ran the copy center at Kohn Swift & Graf. Fast forward a few years and we now both own our business. Yaasss
I’ve been contributing to Philly Style Magazine for at least 5 years, more this year than every. A few years back PSM featured a shot I took of Jill Scott at the Academy Ball. What a thrill. At least 5 times a year I get a shot on this page.
In this months magazine I have Kevin Hart.
At many of the Philly Style Mag parties I’ve gotten great photos to place in Mike Klein’s Inqlings column, as well as fantastic stories.
I noticed that cover shot feature Terrence Howard autographed the mock up cover backwards, and upside down. You have to look in a mirror to see what he wrote. AMAZING!!

Another great connection. Sharilyn Drewen Vidal and Juan Vidal always at PSM parties. Sharilyn‘s
sister is Suzanne Drewen, who I went to Wesley College with; we became fast friends and over summer break in 1982 we hung out. I introduced her to my best friends from Paul VI High School and she ended up marrying one of them. Who later forbade her from every contacting me again after I came out gay. So we didn’t chat with each other for about 2 decades. At Suz’s wedding, Bill my other bff from high school, met Suz’s other sister and got married. They’re still married today. Pretty cool.
