UOMO MODERNO AT PHILADELPHIA FASHION WEEK
The New Generation Fashion Tour from Italy by Uomo Moderno magazine kicked off September 12 at the close of New York Fashion Week and concluded September 19 at the start of Philadelphia Fashion Week.
The tour presented five designer collections from Italy—Nico Didonna, Francesca Marotta, Maison Lvchino, Rumjungle, and Malph—to the musical accompaniment of Sunshine Superman with lead vocalist, Valentina Raffaelli of Tuscany.
Each event started with a VIP/Press hour, which featured exotic drinks and delightful antispasti.
Chef Raffaele Ronca of Risorante Raffele served a tris of insalata di mare, eggplant crostini, and classic meatballs in New York, while chef Luke Palladino, who will be opening an restaurant in Philadelphia this November, offered up a duo of truffled grissini (handcrafted breadsticks with truffle butter, prosciutto and parmesan) and lobster, sweet corn, tomato, and preserved lemon aioli crostini.
During the the VIP/Press hour libations poured in abundance, including organic Punzoné vodka, premium Prosecco Altaneve, and Ocóo - The Beauty Drink.
