In Bloom

Looks like fall's big fashion trend will be 1990s rocker duds -- flannel, Doc Marten-esque boots, Courtney Love levels of manicured dishevelment, and all. While the looks presented at Phoenix Fashion Week's fourth annual MIM Rocks Fashion show will be more spring-friendly than Cobain-centric, the event will spotlight how music and fashion exchange inspiration.

In the mix will be garments from Seattle-based designer Bri Seeley, who was named Phoenix Fashion Week's 2012 designer of the year, and ENVY by Khanh, plus pieces from boutiques Amir's La Voûte and Clothes Minded. Stylists including Yeka Bruner, Fawn Cheng, and Brian Swan will assemble the pieces into runway-ready ensembles. Smells like team spirit to us.
