Although K-pop viral sensation "Gangam Style" likely has permanently/obnoxiously wedged itself into your memory, South Korean rapper PSY's acerbic, snappily-suited take on upper class fashion and stuffy attitude, complete with bizarre cowboy-roping dance moves, is fun, stylish, and quasi-inspiring in a "wear your weirdness proud" way. Bottom line: Fashion is for fun and shouldn't be taken too seriously.

That's what we'll keep in mind during Phoenix Fashion Week, starting on Wednesday, October 3, at 6:30 p.m. with the Fashionably Pink Show, a celeb-studded event benefiting breast cancer research, at the Musical Instrument Museum.

For the three days that follow, nearly 30 designers who are either emerging, established, or specialize in accessories will show styles for winter and spring, including ready-to-wear, evening, sportswear, and resort collections at Talking Stick Resort.

Trunk sales, workshops, and a shopping villa round out the full-blown runway revelry that gets going on Thursday, October 4, at 7:30 p.m. Celeb designer to pop divas Katy Perry (partially responsible for the "Gangam" takeover) and Shakira, Furne One will present a 31-piece collection as the event's grand finale on Saturday, October 6.

Rope yourself a seat (imaginary lassos welcome) for $25 to $100 a day. Tickets are available, along with additional information, through www.phoenixfashionweek.com.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
