Carpet Diem

Watching other people work is always fun. Watching them make it work is even better. Vicarious sweat takes on a glam sheen at the fourth annual Phoenix Fashion Week.

Your ticket for each evening's runway show ($30 general seating, $60 reserved) also gets you in to that day's seminars, trade shows, and assorted chic afterparties, if any of that's your cup of ’tini -- and hey, you might just decide that some part of the rag trade is the career path for you. If beautiful and talented people aren't enough of a draw, work on spotting celebrities, including designer Emily from Project Runway's season five.
