Shop Garment District...The Phoenix Fashion Week Way

It seems every time I turn around I come across another really cool hotel. The Moxy Tempe which is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the ASU campus,in my opinion, is the cool-est and hip-est boutique-y hotel that is rich with so much swag you can't help being drawn in. 
They have a chalkboard wall. You hear me...A CHALKBOARD WALL! Made my inner child happy. 
And step up to the friendly bar to order a yummy cocktail AND check in all at the same time.
Gets no better than that. You can tell I was impressed. Ok, enough on me getting giddy about The Moxy Tempe. Why was I there? Phoenix Fashion Week's Shop Garment District popped up there giving all fashionistas the time of our lives. 

Here we could get a closer look at the emerging designers and accessory designers and what their brand was really about. Shop Garment was quite intimate this year. Executive Director Brian Hill and his fabu team turned a single room into a mini shopping mecca. We had

resort fashion from Isy B (who has a smile that lights up the entire room) just as you walked in which was very welcoming. Every designer had their own shop going and let me tell you, it was busy. 
Even Phoenix Fashion Week had their own pop up shop buzzing. 

Shoppers, bloggers, photogs, you name it, we were all in there. This is what Phoenix Fashion Week does best. Successfully bringing media and fashion together to create a beautiful balance in all cultures of this industry. I have found many designers do not enjoy being in the spotlight, even though they may see the importance of being in that spotlight. But I have a feeling the emerging designer bootcamp works on that. 

With all this shopping and mingling going on, it was sure to be a successful night. And yes, I snagged a little something. 

The buzz from partygoers are loving the looks and can't wait to see the collections on the runway. 

Time to a take seat!

First up....

Phoenix Fashion Week decided to celebrate the U.S. Olympics in a fashionably Red, White, and Blue salute on the runway.
