Strolling the “Runway of Love”
The Evoluer House girls were taking notes at the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Patrick Kelly exhibit. They were in awe of the legendary designer who rose to fame in the 1980s and dressed celebrities from Bette Davis to Princess Di. The “Runway of Love” exhibit, featuring vibrant colors and bold patterns against slinky black silhouettes, gave teens ideas for their respective prom dresses. Evoluer style director Cheryl Wadlington, who was a personal friend of the late designer, shared little known facts as she gave the girls a personalized tour of the collection.
