If you’re like us, you fell into a bit of a fashion coma after last month’s bevy of sartorial-heavy festivities like Philadelphia Collection, Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out, so it’s understandable if you overlooked a style-centric thing or two that went down in October. But fear not, dear lovers of style, we kept our heads enough above water to be able to get you up to speed.
The 17th annual Jumpstart fashion show happened earlier this month at Moore. This year’s theme was “Fractionable.” For their task, juniors and seniors were given simple, unbleached muslin to work with and told that math should play a role in the design. The results were sharp angles and meticulous symmetry. Missed it? That’s OK, you can stop by the Galleries at Moore to get an eyeful. The tingle of the catwalk may be gone, but this way you can enjoy the projects at your own leisure, and no one will give you the stink eye for showing up in jeans. Through Jan. 12, 2013, 2000 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, 215-965-4027, moore.edu.
Joseph Lardizabal and Ky and Rick Cao (of Abakus Takeout) recently hosted an opening party for their new men’s store on South Street, Ps & Qs. Ky cites Philly’s lack of dapper threads for gents as the inspiration behind the shop’s merch, so he’s stocking his shelves with über-stylish names like Warriors of Radness, CXXVI Clothing Co. and Publish. But, boys, it doesn’t stop at clothes. They’ve also got books, soaps and home goods so your apartment can properly reflect your newfound style. 820 South St., 215-592-0888, psandqs.com.
