Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Phoenix Fashion Week doesn't come to the Valley until October, but coordinators of the weekend-long celebration of local and national designers are giving Phoenicians plenty of time to get brushed up on a few musts (and mustn'ts).

The group will unveil its 10 emerging designers this Friday, June 17 from to  during a fashionable meet and greet at the MusicalInstrumentMuseum.

And don't dare try to pull off polyester for silk; these fashionistas will notice the difference.

Last year's emerging designers included Shantidas, Shamini Designs, SJ Couture, Coleccion, Noctis, Mary Jane Smokewear, Couture by Lola, Style No'el, Monique Fagre', and Vickilyn's Closet.

The 10 designers will be competing in October for a $15,000 prize package (the same prize SJ Couture won last year) to help launch his or her own brand. 

The Musical Instrument Museum is at 4725 East Mayo Boulevard in Phoenix. For more information, check out the Phoenix Fashion Week website.

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.
