Street Style from Fashion Under the Shambles, Headhouse Square, Philadelphia

Last night was Fashion Under the Shambles, a showcase of local designers, salons, and boutiques held in Headhouse Square. The Headhouse District that surrounds it is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Philly. Its flavor — a touch of vintage, a dash of burlesque, a heavy dose of punk rock — saturated the event. I'm not going to show you any runway shots from Fashion Under the Shambles, although I assure you they would have been charming. Hosted by "America's Next Top Model finalist" Corey Wade Hindorff, the catwalk featured amateur models with a diversity of looks, ethnicities, and body types. It was probably worth documenting, but I didn't. Frankly, I often get bored when other street style bloggers do show runway images. That's just not what street style sites are good for or at, especially since all sorts of other media photographers were there. So I am leaving the runway photography to the professionals. I will, however, be showing you street style shots of the attendees over the next week or so. I snapped off a couple hundred pics before the show started at 7pm. It's time for a little break from New York Fashion Week. But don't worry, I've still got plenty of those pics to show you as well.

  1. Gorgeous place, I just went here with someone. The place for events in New York was beautiful and spacious, the seats were comfortable and wide. From where I was sitting at least, the views were great. I think the music really did a great job of filling up the space.
