Rocky Gathercole will return to the runway for the finale of Phoenix Fashion Week 2014, reprising his role as the closing act of Phoenix Fashion Week 2013. His intricate, artistic designs are sculptural works favored by Katy Perry.

Also returning are two past winners of the emerging designer contest. 2012 winner Bri Seeley and 2013 winner Dolcessa Swimwear will each show collections of womenswear and swimwear, respectively.

The 2014 emerging designer pool started out with 14 designers, seven of which are based in Phoenix, but since then Provo's POINT&HUE has dropped out of the contest. During the emerging designer announcement back in June, we'd pegged that brand as the frontrunner. The remaining 13 designers will each show collections at Phoenix Fashion Week while competing for the title of emerging designer of the year and a prize package valued at $10,000.

Rounding out the lineup of established designers are Albert Andrada, Yen, Aris Pico, Diego Milano, Carol Wong, Tylor Leigh, and Kenneth Harion Couture.
