Among this being the busiest year for Philly designer, Nancy Volpe Beringer, she made time to celebrate her win at Philadelphia Magazine’s Best Of Philly 2019 soiree. Nancy won the award for Best Local Designer For Artsy Dresses. Earlier this year, Nancy had a colorful and vibrant faux fur coat at Philadelphia’s Fashion Concept store Joan Shepp. Tierra Whack fell in love with it and purchased it. Nancy DMed her via Instagram, telling her the inspiring story behind the coat and how it was made for a charity event to support women with substance abuse disorder. Whack was excited and was invited to Nancy’s studio to see the space and that’s when the spark happened.
Before she knew it, Nancy was creating Tierra’s floor length artsy gown, paired with the faux fur coat that she had already purchased. This look gave Whack and Beringer headlines and trending online. This look also lead Nancy to winning her first Best Of Philly award.
