Philadelphia Fashion Week hit its stride in night two celebrating street wear and hip-hop. Once again, the night kicked off with student designers, this time from Philadelphia University.

After a few sets from the turntables, models sauntered down the runways in fresh designs by Street Star Custom Clothing, GAR-DE, Nine Days, S. LOVE and Triple 5 Soul.

Philly native Tu Phace also took to the mic and rocked the crowd during Triple 5 Soul's trip down the catwalk. Action News' own Ali Gorman and Sarah Bloomquist welcomed fashionistas to the event, and Rick Williams was front and center, enjoying the sights with his wife.

It is billed as the largest professional fashion event in the city and, on opening night, a diamond catwalk was set up at the 23rd Street Armory.

There were fashions by students from the Moore College of Art and Design, as well as looks by Brooklyn Royalty, Wrath Arcane, Love Brigade, Palmieri Jeans, Delicious, and Kill City. Fashionistas rocked out to music from This is a Shakedown and Black Landlord.

The goal of the 3-day event is to support and put a spotlight on local retailers and fashion designers. Philadelphia Fashion Week also features entertainment, fashionable cuisine and shopping at on-site boutiques.

The doors open at 4 p.m. and the show wraps up at 10 p.m. Tickets are still available for Friday and Saturday nights, and you can get them at Philadelphiafashionweek.org.

Action News will be there all three nights, shooting exclusive video and slideshows for 6abc.com.
