The Philadelphia Designer's Market Recap

On July 18, Joe and I attended our first designer showcase in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Designer's Market featured the work of about twenty designers. Here's a recap of some of the artisans that really stood out in my mind.

Eclectically Chic features custom designed handbags and accessories by Emily Lazo. She uses faux leathers and fabrics to create beautiful bags, such as the large Merlot and Tie 'Em Up bags.

We purchased an adorable, and affordable, dog bed from Collars and More by Molly. The "more" part includes stylish leashes & key chains.

Kayla Jane is a busy designer creating baby goods, as well as jewelry, garters, and more.

Typhaney Shanker of Typhaney B. Jewelry hand-crafts gorgeous accessories that shoppers were clamoring for! Typhaney has also been nominated for myfoxphilly's Hot List.

I loved all the eye-catching earring designs by Krista Peel. We thought some of them looked like yummy chunks of candy!

April Torres of Isabella Grace Originals designs Earth-friendly jewelry and accessories using mainly recycled materials to bring original works of art to the fashion world. I love the bright sunburst necklace.

Dennis Buchanan is a charismatic designer of high-end luxury business neck wear (ie: ties). I loved that his ties come in coordinating boxes that look very chic.

I have followed the work of Michelle Harvey and Michabella Creations for a while & it was so nice to meet her & her business partner, Cindy Grill, in person. The duo donates a portion of their profits to the American Cancer Society, Children's Miracle Network, and the PA Breast Cancer Coalition.

And don't miss the beautiful designs by Layla Niebrugge of Laylabelle. Her sterling silver silhouettes are gorgeous.
