Last night was the kick-off party for Philadelphia Fashion Week. Guests gathered at a lit-up outdoor location on Chestnut Street complete with DJ, light bites and cocktails, and Philly's most fashionable folks. Part of the décor included mannequins wearing frocks by locally-based designer Praje Oscar.
