The H&M store on Walnut Street will be blessed by the Versace for H&M collection starting at 8AM Saturday, November 19th, 2011. Mark your calendars because this event is going to be HUGE!
According to the site, each group of 20 people in line will get a colored wristband (up to 280 people). Shoppers will be allowed a 15 minute shopping window, and the order in which people are allowed to shop goes according to the color of their wristband. Wristband holders are only allowed to shop the Versace for H&M women’s collection. Anyone else who wants to shop the Versace for H&M men’s line, Versace for H&M home collection or regular H&M apparel can do so at their leisure.
Once you’re in H&M and drooling over Donatella’s designs, don’t get ahead of yourself. Customers are allowed to purchase only two items, so plan wisely. H&M’s posted the entire selection to its website so shoppers can pick out their favorite pieces for the budget.
I can’t wait to see everyone there, and stay tuned for a detailed review of the line. Is it going to actually look like Versace, or just a cheap Chinatown knockoff?
- Doors open at 8AM.
- You’re only allowed two pieces.
- The Walnut Street H&M is the one with the gold.
- You only need a wristband if you’re shopping the women’s collection.
- PW Style will be attending and documenting the chaos that will ensue.
Roaring! A 1920s Event was hosted by Noel Zayas Events in the gorgeous Arts Ballroom on Juniper and Locust streets. In addition to the fashion, there was an art exhibit throughout the venue that gave a taste of a modern take on 1920s art. The event officially started at 9 p.m. with cabaret performers beautifully belting out their ballads.
Maci Miller’s loud and proud voice warmly filled an intimate sitting room where attendees could enjoy a glass of wine and a performance. Her cheetah dress, designed by Philly’s own Carmelita Couture, was the cat’s meow. Prrrrrrrr.
In the main ballroom, the open bar and house music created a great atmosphere for socializing as excitement grew for the fashion show. The female models were dressed in Priscilla Costa’s designs accompanied by Joan Shepp and the Fur Vault by Macy’s. Naturally, everything was a modern take on the 1920s.
Priscilla Costa’s satin a-symmetrical dress would go perfectly with a finger curl and a dark red lip.
Dresses were very sleek and sexy but not boring.
Is it just me, or does this look like something Julius Caesar would wear?
The etherial white dress was sexy and sophisticated at the same time. Tres Chic.
I’m not quite sure how grandmother’s housecoat fit in the show…
Priscilla also incorporated a modern take on the flapper girl with her knee length dresses.
I’m not quite sure why they make trash bags in satin, or why she’s wearing one. Fortunately, her look is very 1920s.
The women’s fashion was clearly 1920s inspired, unfortunately the same can’t be said for the men’s. The men’s fashion, Provided by Macy’s, seemed like something thrown together at the last minute. While I can see how the outfits were inspired by the time period, they seemed drab compared to the lavish women’s collection.
I always like to start with the best, and I loved this outfit. Grey suits are the perfect ensemble for almost any occasion.
I love my dogs too, but I wouldn’t embroider them on my pants.
Velour jackets? What? That’s still a thing?
Velour pants? Really? From the waist up, I thought this outfit was pretty cool though.
Overall, it was interesting to see a night of 1920s culture, and who doesn’t love a good themed party? I definitely recommend going should there be another one because the event was incredibly well put together. I always say the proof is in the details, and it seemed like Noel Zayas kept that in mind when planning his event.
