'Tis the season for fashion shows -- sandwiched between Phoenix Fashion Week and the upcoming Scottsdale Fashion Week, the Hispanic Women's Corporation (HWC) is celebrating its 25th anniversary with music, drinks, and a wide-ranging display of established and emerging designers.
Proceeds from "Celebrating 25 years of Education, Tradition, Elegance & Power" at the Phoenix Convention Center on Oct. 21 will go toward funding future HWC programs, which aim to "empower Latina women and youth by serving as an effective voice for their communities."

Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and fashion shows start at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased through the HWC website.
