Model Behavior

What could be more enticing than spending an evening in the company of beautiful models? Chuck Norris looks cool doing it -- and so can you. To make that happen, head to the annual Showcase of the Arts, a celebration of Arizona's thriving artist and fashion communities.

Ladies and gents from Phoenician Models will mingle with local photographers, fashion designers, and musicians, including Christopher Boats O’Shana of Sea & Sands Photography, fashion designer StyleNoel's Lisa Patricia (who also leads the runway charge, and later Deeds of Love), photographers Bill Nash and Kat Loveland, and rapper/impresario Tha Wikid One. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, a charity organization dedicated to helping wounded combat veterans and their families.
