Philadelphia Fashion

Philadelphia has an enviable pedigree when it comes to retail and fashion design. The legendary John Wanamaker built his business in the very store that Macy’s occupies now. Stetson hats and Botany 500 were based here in Philadelphia. Urban Outfitters, Destination Maternity, Lagos, Charming Shoppes and Lilly Pulitzer are presently headquartered in the Philadelphia area. Designers such as Ralph Rucci, Albert Nippon, Danny Noble, Adrienne Vittadini, Tory Burch and the late Willi Smith all had roots in Philadelphia.
