Looking for ways to fill up your weekend? Here are your five best bets for getting out and about in the Valley of the Sun.

Espionage En Couture @ Scottsdale AirCenter The undeniable highlight of Phoenix Fashion Week 2012 was the three-day event's grand finale: a showstopping collection of pop culture-infused, and iconography-rich designs from Dubai-based Furne One (pronounced fern oh-NAY). Jaws dropped at the designer's sculpted animalistic headpieces, gothic, religion-referencing glamour, and architectural lines.

Those who missed out on the memborable collection and those craving more One eye candy will get a second chance to experience his wearable art during the fashion show Espionage En Couture. Fresh from LA Fashion Week, the line Confessions of a Mata Hari: A Tribute to McQueen likely will deliver on the same theatrical, hyper-detailed front with pieces inspired by the late fashion innovator Alexander McQueen.
