Plans for Drexel’s Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design Fashion Show are just beginning. The show, set for Saturday, June 5th, will take place inside the corporate headquarters of Urban Outfitters at the Philadelphia Navy Yard for the second year in a row. Last week the D&M Fashion Show Production team visited the venue. Here is a sneak peak at the super cool space.
The show is the largest it’s ever been with 42 fashion design students showing collections that feature evening wear, men’s and women’s wear, sportswear and swimwear, children’s wear, lingerie and more. Students presenting their collection compete for industry awards sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Lily Pulitzer, Destination Maternity and Joan Shepp.
There will be two showings, one at 4 pm and another at 8 pm with a reception to follow the latter. Tickets go on sale on April 23rd and are $25 for the 4 PM show and $50 for the 8 PM show (which includes an exclusive gift bag and entrance to the reception that follows). They will be sold in Chapman Court in the lobby of Nesbitt Hall (33rd and Market Streets).
And if you just can’t wait, view a video of last year’s show here for a taste of what’s to come.
