2012 STYLE AND GRACE FASHION SHOW

Rather than the traditional runway, Frank Agostino directed formations of models down the Grand Staircase at the University of The Arts in Philadelphia for Universal Companies’ inaugural fund raiser.

The AGOSTINO Spring Collection represented couture day and evening wear. The AGOSTINO brand has been recognized for the past 30 years for its timeless and elegant designs, all assembled by hand in Frank’s Bryn Mawr atelier.

Universal Companies is a Philadelphia based community development and education non-profit corporation founded by music impresario Kenneth Gamble and his wife, Faatimah. AGOSTINO’S showing and the evening’s reception specifically focused on Universal’s “Pearls of Wisdom” for girls and “From Boys to Men” social-etiquette programs.
