Greenable Plots Fashion Show in Northern Liberties


Otto Defey Spring Collection


Philly designer Otto Defey has chosen Arcadia Boutique as the exclusive retailer for their Spring Collection. The garments, which range from tunic dresses to silky summer tops, will launch at the Northern Liberties eco-boutique on Wednesday, May 5, from 5-9 pm. Ahem, it's not just Cinco de Mayo.

But, you don't have to wait until then to scope the entire line.

This Saturday, May 1st, Greenable and Greensaw's first ever fashion show will debut Otto Defey at Greenable's studio on 820 North 4th Street. The building design and supply company is a great resource for green building materials in the Philadelphia area, so we're curious about what their own stomping grounds look like. But most of all, we're wondering about Philly's green fashion thumb. The 7 pm show requires an RSVP to Also showing work are Millesime and Moko. Greenable has also teased that they are opening an outdoor organic market starting in June outside of their studio.

The phrase "nothing to wear" shall be hereby banished from the mouths of Northern Libertarians.
