Phoenix Fashion Week 2014 at Talking Stick Resort: Friday's Designers a Mixed Bag

Is it just us, or has Phoenix Fashion Week 2014 been the best edition of the event yet?

Sure, there have been ugly outfits and underwhelming collections. But so far they've been outnumbered by thoughtful designs and higher garment quality than we've seen on the PFW runway in past years. And the event seems to be running more smoothly than ever.

Here's hoping we aren't jinxing it. Because the designers who showed on Friday, October 3, at Talking Stick Resort were still a mixed bag of good and, well, unfortunate. And there's still one more night to go.
