Shop the work of the talented designers of the Philly Fashion Incubator — before they make it big.

The Philly Mag Fashion Project is in full swing but, I’m happy to say, we’re far from the only program supporting local fashion designers in town. The Philadelphia Fashion Incubator at Macy’s Center City, now in its fourth year, provides six hand-picked designers-in-residence the tools and resources—from studio space to mentoring—to successfully launch their fashion careers.

I’ve toured the PFI studio space, and the pieces the designers turn out are nothing short of inspiring. Lucky for you, they’re opening the design vault for a pop-up shop in Manayunk. Head there to shop the handmade, hot-off-the-presses summer collections of the current class (designers are Rebecca Imperiano, Victoria Wright, Terese Brown, Gabrielle Mandel, Jovan O’Connor and Sherrill Mosee), along with former designers-in-residence Melissa Choi, Pia Panaligan, Annina King and Trisha Williams. (And if some of those names sound familiar, they should: Victoria Wright and Terese Brown were designers featured in last year’s PMFP, and Melissa Choi and Pia Panaligan are two of the designers in this year’s design contest!)

When: Now through Sunday, June 29th, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day.

Where: 4347 Main Street, Manayunk.
