The Philadelphia Magazine Fashion Project

Our search for Philly's next great fashion designer, and the eight fabulous outfits that came out of it. The winner, though? That's up to you.

Welcome to the first-ever Philadelphia Magazine Fashion Project, our search for the best and brightest local design ta­lent. We combed through countless portfolios and résumés and chose eight designers to each create one original, exclusive piece for our pages, which we styled with goods from some of our top local shops. Here, the end results, by the best designers you don’t know—yet. And it doesn’t end here: you can go here to vote for your favorite designer. The winner will be announced at our inaugural Philly Mag Shops event, a can’t-miss one-day shopping and fashion extravaganza on October 6th. In the meantime, check out our finalists below:
