On Wednesday, September 11th, the city's best gathered together to celebrate fashion icon, Joan Shepp, and the 48th anniversary of her business. A portion of proceeds from the event benefited the National MS Society in support of Jersey Brownstein, who gave Joan her first $5 at the Lafayette Hill location in 1971.

Raffle giveaways were provided to a few lucky guests. Items included prints by resident artist, Liz Goldberg; a Commes des Garcons PLAY t-shirt, an MM6 Maison Margiela handbag, Issey Miyake Bao Bao handbags, and more. All guests received gift bags inclusive of Franck Boclet perfume.

Fashion illustrator, Denise Fike, gifted guests with hand-painted portraits embellished with gold leaf.
Guests enjoyed cocktails and food provided by Rouge. Singer, DD Brown, serenaded guests with French and American songs. Guests gathered together for a toast during which friends and family shared memories and paid tribute to Philadelphia's iconic boutique.
