Design of the Times

Paris Fashion Week ends on Wednesday, October 5, leaving the catwalk obsessed to pour over the event’s photos, reviews, and style implications until there’s a new season of cuts and colors to adore.

But Arizonans can get a dose of designers on a more local level during Phoenix Fashion Week.

Up-and-comers and established trend-makers fill the bill with their designs, which range from t-shirts and custom denim to party dresses and diligently tailored suits.

Runway shows start at 7:30 p.m. nightly, and the three-day event closes with four emerging designers showcasing their creations.
