Phoenix Fashion Week Hosts Fourth Annual MIM Rocks Fashion Show

If runway shows from Chanel, Saint Laurent, and Rodarte are any indication, looks like fall's big fashion trend will be 1990s rocker duds -- flannel, Doc Marten-esque boots, Courtney Love levels of manicured dishevelment, and all.
While the looks presented at Phoenix Fashion Week's fourth annual MIM Rocks Fashion at Musical Instrument Museum will skew more spring-friendly than Cobain-centric, the Friday, March 29, event will spotlight how music and fashion exchange inspiration.
In the mix will be garments from Seattle-based designer Bri Seeley, who was named Phoenix Fashion Week's 2012 designer of the year, and PFW 2012 emerging designer ENVY by Khanh, plus pieces from boutiques Amir's La Voûte, Divaz Boutique, and Clothes Minded.
