Fashion Rules the Runway!!!

From the district to burlap to couture, the runway last Friday included it all.  Degree 270 at Talking Stick Resort, home of Phoenix Fashion Week 2012, hosted an energetic and most stylish event full of the hustle and bustle of fashionistas, photographers, designers, artists, models, sponsors and all the fans of fashion.  The vibe is incredible at these events as everyone is vying for the best position in the house to experience the visual display of textures, lights, accessories, splashed colors and the most perfectly designed beings to represent the best of the best.  

Being part of runway is a prestigious honor and with the designers in house this year, it’s more like having royalty around as the court they hold now seems cannot be compared to others.  The models selected represented beyond outstanding and their involved presence was evident throughout the entire night.  Diversity, boldness, chic, elegance, creative, classy, comfortable were weaved throughout and arranged as part of the fiery but posh exhibition for this year’s show.  Noted here is a compelling overview of the designers and what is going to make this year’s final decision in October incredibly difficult: (See Photos for Designs )
