Having said farewell to the sun-kissed hazy days of summer, Armour took to the catwalk on Tuesday September 23rd at FASHION UNDER THE SHAMBLES at 200 Pine St. to introduce selections of our Fall 2014 collection of separates and accessories. And with over 500 people clamoring about the standing-room-only event, Philly turned out and turned up for this massive, open-air, fashion celebration catered by area eateries. Presented by The South Street Headhouse District, Fashion Under the Shambles showcased the best of local Philadelphia fashion with unexpected and innovative collaborations between the boutiques and salons on Fabric Row and throughout SSHD. The glitzy affair spotlighted nearly 60 looks from a variety of independent South St retailers including our friends at Urban Princess Boutique, Totem Brand, Helena Boutique, Crash Bang Boom, Bus Stop, Hats in The Belfry, Nostalgia and Moon and Arrow among others. The crowd was entertained by the emcee of the night, Cory Wade Hindorff, a Philly native, current resident and former contestant on America’s Next Top Model.
