Philly Mag Shops Assembles The City’s Top Retailers At Crane Arts For A One-Day Fashion Affair, Sunday, October 6; Enter To Win Two Free Tickets!
Lovers of the Philadelphia shopping scene know that the best buys happen in this city’s independent boutiques.
From Old City to Rittenhouse Square, brilliant proprietors stock their shelves with handpicked apparel and accessories, enabling savvy shoppers to support local stores without surrendering an ounce of style.
Now, thanks to Philadelphia magazine, more than 30 of the area’s top shops and designers will be in one location for an exceptional afternoon of retail therapy.
From noon to 4 p.m., score jeans, dresses, tops, shoes, accessories and jewelry from local boutiques. The best part? All goods will be discounted up to 40 percent!
Participating shops include such fashion fixtures as Knit Wit, Erdon, Sa Va, Third Street Habit, Aoki, Arcadia, Vagabond and so many more, which means deals on duds by such well-known labels as Rag & Bone, Isabel Marant Etoile, Rebecca Minkoff, J Brand, Splendid, Joie and Lovers & Friends.
The warehouse-style shopping extravaganza will take over the Crane Arts building both indoors and out, with vendors set up in the huge Icebox event space and its entrance space, as well as in a tent outside in the garden.
Look for the majority of apparel to be on display in the main event space, with shoes, jewelry, accessories and local designs — including the finalists from the Philly Mag Fashion Project — set up in an adjacent lounge furnished by Magpie Vintage.
Outside, brush up on beauty tips at three beauty bars. Learn about creating smoky eyes and bold lips from makeup artist Beke Beau, get schooled in braids and buns from stylist Jason Matthew, and glean on-point nail art lessons from the experts at Lacquer Lounge.
No shopping trip would be complete without snacks, and sustenance will be provided in the way of mini paninis and other fare, plus drinks like mini champagne bottles, cocktails and wine.
To attend, scoop up a ticket for $25 here.
