The eighth annual edition of Phoenix Fashion Week swathes fashion aficionados in style-driven seminars, contests, and runway shows offering sneak peeks at spring and summer fashions for 2013. Cultivate chic during one of nine fashion-education seminars, then head to shows in which established designers (7:30 p.m.) and emerging thread artists (10 p.m.) display their wares to customers, journalists, and curious washing machines. Last year’s show highlighted timely clothing by local and national brands such as Blaque Label, Velvet Boutique, and Alana Hale. Standing-room-only tickets provide panoramic views of models strutting down catwalks, letting the audience catch every stilettoed pivot and swish of modified cornhusk evening gown. Haute-couture hunters may hound sleek shirts and jeans at the Style Villa market, open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., where fashionable articles await the trip home to your wardrobe.
Phoenix Fashion Week
Established designers, emerging artists, and enough fabric to make a nightgown for the moon—Phoenix Fashion Week combines all these to shine a light on Arizona's fashion industry. A stroll across the convention floor reveals everything from luxury sportswear to swimwear to accessories, and if attendees need help imagining what something looks like on their person, they need only turn to the runway. Here, local models not only show off designs, they compete for the coveted title of model of the year.
To complement all this fashion, seminars educate attendees about design and general business topics including branding, marketing, and monetizing a blog. Funds raised throughout the event support the Arizona-based non-profit Don’t be a Chump! Check for a Lump! which raises awareness about breast cancer.
