Phoenix Fashion Week paired four local shops and one label with five stylists for its Spring Into Fashion showcase. The Arizona Center courtyard was full of fashionistas eager to catch a glimpse at some of the new spring looks provided by Clothes Minded, Allie Ollie, Fresh Start, 7 Diamonds, and Divaz, all of which had pop-up shops set up at the fashion show. Rochelle York, Yekatherina Bruner, Vanessa Renee, Jessica Hunter, and Jenesis LaForcarde all styled looks for the aforementioned boutiques. We saw lots of great spring styles, but 10 looks really stood out on the runway.
Black and yellow pair well for Jenesis LaForcarde's Divaz ensemble. The bold, colorful skirt is a great contrast to the peek-a-boo black top. Plus, lollipops are always a great accessory.
The Divaz pieces that Jenesis LaForcarde styled for Divaz really stood out, thanks to audacious color combinations. The contrast between the light blue skirt and the orange makes for a perfect outfit.
Yekatherina Bruner did a great job of combining patterns for Allie Ollie Boutique. These black and white pants looked great with a fitted top and a colorful bag.
Light, flowing skirts were all the rage at Spring Into Fashion. Allie Ollie's light blue skirt, styled by Bruner, looked lovely on the runway.
Rochelle York's looks for Clothes Minded Boutique were very accessible. The asymmetrical white top complemented the coral pants with a pop of turquoise from the clutch.
This high-waisted, flowing cobalt skirt was nothing short of stunning. The white top showed that the skirt could be either dressed up or dressed down -- and the blue necklace was a great accent.
Bruner's use of coverups brought color to Allie Ollie ensembles. The use of coral here helps dress up a casual look.
This was arguably LaForcarde's best look. The high-slit maxi skirt stole the spotlight and looked fab with a gold-accented crop top.
The button down top looks classic with a pleated skirt -- and a cinched belt to bring it all together. Vanessa Renee's combination of whites and creams looked light and elegant.
In her introduction video, Renee said that she loves styling white-on-white looks. Her styling mainly involved white, but the outfits she styled were varied enough to pull it off. This was the standout piece for both the Fresh Start Boutique and the entire show. The patterned top complements the skirt, and the purse is a flawless accessory.
