Philadelphia Designer's Market!

If you haven't "Liked" Philadelphia Designer's Market on Facebook or subscribed to their newsletter, you should do so ASAP.

You know I love all the big designers, but I REALLY love an Indie-Designer! So when I saw this invite.... I typed it into my calendar immediately and have been looking forward to it for weeks! ......should have posted a reminder for everyone else on the 17th... I promise, I'll make sure I post their Spring Market dates.

So... I was really in the mood for fashion, the night before I attended John Wind/Maximal Art's 25th Anniversary Bash at The Palm
Best Dressed
Ilene Griff (Graphic Designer) 
in Isabel Marant and Stella McCartney, John Wind Signature Necklace
Dina Wind (Artist, and Mother of John Wind)
in two classic John Wind Double brooch

 ..... after a whirlwind night of every neck, ear, and wrist being adorned with a John Wind bauble, I was prepped for more fashion and couldn't wait to see what the Philadelphia's Designer's Market had to offer.  And I wasn't disappointed ... I could hear the bustling shoppers and oohs and ahhs way before I started walking on the Market's yellow carpet (which was held at the Beautiful First Babtist Church on 17th Street.... took a moment to meditate inside the actual chapel... I highly recommend meditation, and I highly recommend a look at the beautiful architecture and history of the Church.

So... let's dive in!  There was an amazing energy inside the Market space.  Everyone was reaching and grabbing and trying things on.... and primping in mirrors... my kind of party.  Here are a few of my faves....

Designer, Kelly Louise succeeds in designing jewelry that allows the wearer to become one with the elements.  She wants to show the balance and connection between all things. 
...Fell in love with her pocketwatches! 

Ohhhh and I ran into one of my new favorite designers Sultana Maria (met her at Eat your Art Out).  
Sultana Maria Jewelry makes the kind of jewelry that I'm so attracted to.... found objects, abstract, asymmetrical... Rocker Glam!  I bought a great pair of coin earrings... $20!
I Heart New Jersey

 Nesha Griffin is self taught and has a line called My Rever Jewelry Collection (site under construction) her inspiration is nature.... You can see more of Nesha's work, on An Dukes blog.  Bought a beautiful silver multi-chain necklace.... $35!  Yes! I bet you'll be shopping the Spring Philadelphia Designer's Market. *Wink*
