Celebrating its 10th year, Philly Fashion Week runs Feb. 16 through Feb. 22. It may not be as swanky as New York's or Milan's, but a lot of great designers show off their creations here. Many of Philly Fashion Week's events are a bit exclusive -- for instance, the Finale Runway Show is by invitation only -- but plenty are available for public consumption.

If you're a discerning dresser, check out the Luxe Men's Show, the Ready-To-Wear Show, and the Couture Runway Show for between $30 and $80 a ticket, including VIP options. 

The Luxe Men's Show includes designers of formalwear and menswear like Larr Brio, Clarenz Couture, D Leaks and Andrew Nowell. Designers like Datari Austin, Jaya Misra, bdescai, Ken Laurence, and K. Nicole will participate in the ready-to-wear show. The couture finale will include designs from English Clientele, Jacinta Ligon, Lillie Designs and Autumn Lin.

Want to meet the designers? Head to Rothman Ice Rink on Monday, Feb. 16 for Fashion On Ice. You'll have the chance to skate with designers and models from 7-9 p.m. Skaters are encouraged to wear red, white and blue to celebrate President's Day. The three best-dressed skaters will win gift certificates to restaurants, tickets to attractions and passes to Fashion Week events. You never know, you may get "discovered" too!
