By Erika, Resident Fashionista
As I said in today’s Flashback Friday Post, Fall Fashion Week(s) is upon us. There are a TON of fabulous events going on over the next few weeks for the Philadelphia Collection, FBH Philly Fashion Week, Atlantic City Fashion Week, Curvy Closets and C.U.R.V.V. At YCS, we totally understand that all of our fabulous readers can’t be everywhere; so we’re committed to covering the events for you! It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it!
Check out the schedule below to get details on the events YCS will be covering and who we’re most looking forward to seeing!
FBH Philly Fashion Week: Fashion and Style Event/LUX Accessories Pop-Up, TOMMi Studio (Philadelphia Collection)
On Wednesday, September 18, FBH Philly Fashion Week kicked off with the Fashion and Style Event/LUX Accessories Pop-Up held at TOMMi Studio. The event featured luxury products and accessories for sale. Alexis (the newest member of the YCS Family) covered the event. You can look forward to her recap next week! In the meantime, check out some of her pictures from the event below and on the YCS Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Fashionaires Vintage Designer Pop-Up Shop, Hotel Palomar (Philadelphia Collection)
“Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar Philadelphia welcomes back fashion’s biggest names for a one day pop-up shop hosted in the Palomar’s brand new meeting and event space, Tyng. The Fashionaires, descends on Philadelphia with your wardrobe’s most coveted items– ready to wear clothing, handbags, accessories, and shoes galore.”

FBH Philly Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear Runway Show, Crane Arts (FBH Philly Fashion Week)
On the first night of FBH Philly Fashion Week’s runway shows, 14 designers will show off their latest ready-to-wear runway collections.
Who we’re dying to see: Michael Thomas, a favorite of YCS, earns the coveted closing show at tonight’s runway presentation. That’s a tall order; but, if anyone is up for the challenge it is Mr. Thomas whose collections are always thoughtfully put together with a continuity and maturity that far exceeds his years.
FBH Philly Fashion Week Haute Couture Runway Show, Crane Arts (FBH Philly Fashion Week)
FBH Philly Fashion Week concludes with the Haute Couture Runway show where 12 local and national designers will display the latest in haute couture fashion.
Who we’re dying to see: Andrew Nowell designs chic and trendy menswear that emphasizes quality, comfort, style and fit. The ladies here at YCS love a man in a tailored ensemble and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what comes down the runway.
SA VA Fall Style Event, Sa Va (Philadelphia Collection)
“Guests will be able to get tips on the hottest Fall fashion and beauty trends and how to make them work for them. This event is by invitation only.”

September 27 & 28
Atlantic City Fashion Week Full Figured and Ready to Wear Runway Show, The Pier Shops at Caesar’s (Atlantic City Fashion Week)
Atlantic City Fashion Week Couture Runway Show, The Pier Shops at Caesar’s (Atlantic City Fashion Week)
Once again, YCS will be covering the runways of Atlantic City Fashion Week held at the Pier Shops at Caesar’s. At the spring shows, I fell in absolute LOVE with Duke and Winston (www.dukeandwinston.com) and I’m hoping for a similar experience with the designers showcasing during the fall shows.
Who we’re dying to see: Cultured Couture has been on my radar since 2012 when I saw them at an outdoor fashion event in Rittenhouse park. The sophisticated, vintage looks make me yearn for the days when people dressed up for everything – whether it was a trip to the market or a trip to another country.
Curvy Closets, The Crane Arts
As you guys know from our previous post, YCS will be at the Curvy Closets Fashion Event to give you all the latest scoop on the plus sized fashion scene. Alexis and I had a chance to get some behind-the-scenes details from Curvy Closets co-producers, Colleen and Dominique, and the Curvy Closets Correspondent, friend to YCS, Aleea from A Happy Slappy Greeting! My interviews will be posted soon, but you can check out a couple sneak peeks on the YCS Instagram and Facebook accounts.

C.U.R.V.V. , an Exhibit Curated by ChaCha N’Kole, University of Pennsylvania Museum
There is a ton of full figured love going around these days and this exhibit and short film keep on spreading it! This is the “first ever museum exhibition to highlight full-figured high-fashion.” All I have to say is, “it’s about darn time!” I’m super excited to be covering this event and getting and exclusive interview with the cast of the corresponding short film, also entitled “C.U.R.V.V.” Make sure you come check out this event!
