Better have a few on-trend outfits at the ready, because Phoenix Fashion Week returns on October 13 for three nights of runway shows and shopping at Talking Stick Resort, 9800 East Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale.
Community night kicks things off on Thursday by spotlighting local labels such as State Forty Eight, students from the Art Institute of Phoenix, and a handful of the emerging designers competing for the distinction (and prize package) that comes with being named designer of the year. Each evening features eight runway presentations centered on a different aesthetic. Friday showcases contemporary fashions, while Saturday focuses on luxury and couture brands.
Fashion Week closes on Saturday, October 15, with off-the-wall looks from avant-garde Filipino designer Rocky Gathercole, who has brought the festivities to a sparkly, show-stopping close for the past two years. Tickets are $50 and up per night. The style villa marketplace opens at 5 p.m. nightly, and runway shows start at 8. For details and seating options, see phoenixfashionweek.com.
