9 Favorite Looks From Phoenix Fashion Week 2014

This year, Phoenix Fashion Week was a little bit different.

Designers presented collections at Talking Stick Resort from October 2 through 4 that were better crafted and more smartly assembled than ever before. No line was an all-out embarrassment. There was plenty I didn't like, but there was more that I found impressive. And while I did spot a pinned hem here and a splitting seam there, overall garment construction for this year's emerging designers was of a much higher and consistent quality than I've seen at Phoenix Fashion Weeks past.
