Emerging Designers Off to Rocky Start at Phoenix Fashion Week 2014 at Talking Stick Resort

It was a slow and rocky start for Phoenix Fashion Week 2014's opening night on Thursday, October 2, at Talking Stick Resort. But, somewhat surprisingly, the annual style event turned it around by the end of the evening with designs from Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising graduates.

Emerging designers Charmosa, Misha Mendicino, State Forty Eight, and Woman's Touch Apparel kicked off the runway show. And it was a tedious first half.
