Last night, I attended an event called the Black Tie Affair, it was in conjunction with The Philadelphia Collection's fashion week celebrations. It was nothing short of amazing! It was a social hour mixed in with a mini fashion show, a precursor to Philadelphia's fashion shows this weekend. It was great to talk with some young and local fashion designers and looking at their work was simply inspirational!

I tried to get images of all the designers, but unfortunately a lot of my photos came out too blurred for posting. The top photo was right before the fashion show, the models were stoic, standing on a platform like statues while displaying the designers garment(s). I'm especially in love with Bishme Cromartie's piece, I love metallics! The next photo was during the fashion show, highlighting Cory Couture. His work is spectacular, the draping the colors, the fabrics, so in love!
The location for this event was perfect in an outdoor setting. Since it was the first day of Autumn, the weather was nice and cool without being to hot to sweat or too cool to shiver. There was a big, beautiful fountain that changed the colors of the spotlights, right in the center. The models walked off the stage and around the fountain for their walk, it was incredible!

For this event, I made sure I looked fashionable, comfortable and most importantly like me. Love this maxi dress from Forever21, it's one of my favorite finds! It has equal doses of old school glamour, with the sweetheart neckline and modern day edge, with the all over pleating. I'm a huge fan of old Hollywood glamour!
Here are some more pictures of fashionably dressed people.
