StyleWeek Providence Is Back!

Designers Jessica Abernethy, David Chum and Jonathan Joseph Peters showed their collections on opening night Sunday.


Fantastic creations returned to the runway Sunday night as StyleWeek Providence held its opening night at the Biltmore.

Providence-based designer Jessica Abernethy led the evening with her "Alpine Dream" collection inspired by winter days, with models sporting earmuffs. Self-taught designer and "Project Runway" alum David Chum then presented his collection for Selahdor, which was filled with clean lines. And native Rhode Islander and fellow "Project Runway" alum Jonathan Joseph Peters wowed the crowd with his gypsy-inspired collection, called "Zingara Lamina." Check out the highlights:

The Autumn/Winter 2012 show of StyleWeek continues through Sunday, Jan. 28. Tonight is scheduled to feature an accessory showcase by Warren retailer Blue Suede, Maria del Carmen Mercado's collection, "Superior," and "Svelte Sara," by Sara Derfus.
