The Philadelphia Fashion Show from Italy
A Signature Event of the Philadelphia Collection
Last year, Francesco Di Maio launched Uomo Moderno magazine in the City of Brotherly Love to showcase the best of Italy’s fashion, décor, music, and contemporary lifestyle. To mark its one year anniversary, Uomo Moderno is inaugurating the New Generation Fashion Tour from Italy, which will kick off in the Big Apple on September 12 with New York Fashion Week Italian Collections.
The fashion tour will continue to Philadelphia on September 19 with the Philadelphia Fashion Show from Italy, which will take place in the enclosed courtyard of the Morris House, a national historical monument that was constructed in 1787. The show has been chosen as a signature event by the city’s fashion week, the Philadelphia Collection.
At the event, the men’s and women’s collections of young emerging designers from Italy—such as Nico Didonna (haute couture), Rumjungle (casual street), Malph (avant-garde), Lvchino (classic contemporary), Francesca Marotta (bespoke, Sicily Inspired)—will be presented to the live musical accompaniment of Valentina Raffaelli from Tuscany & her band Sunshine Superman.
Brandon Boykin and Mychal Kendricks of the Philadelphia Eagles have signed on as star guest models, while Chef Luke Palladino will provide signature antipasti, as well as culinary tips that he has gleaned during his extensive stays in Italy.
Guests may choose from two types of tickets. First, the VIP Package starting at 6pm includes the signature antipasti of Chef Luke Palladino, complimentary Prosecco by Altaneve, vodka drinks by Punzoné, Ocóo the beauty drink, backstage shots, press hour, door prize, and an intimate “meet & greet” with the musicians, organizers, star models, and special guests.
The second option, General Admission, begins at 7pm and includes signature tastings by Chef Palladino, vodka drinks by Punzoné, door prize, and a complimentary copy of the Uomo Moderno Anniversary Edition.
Models provided by @HouseofTalentPA, which is filming the New Generation Fashion Tour from Italy for the second season and airing on WACP and WTVE networks to 5 million homes in October, with TV personality Antoine Johnson.
