Well, it's finally come and gone!
Boohoo, I'm sad to see it end.
Recording artist Yasmeen opened the show surprising us with a contemporary dancer who was captivating. Between Yasmeen's voice and the expressionistic dance you were caught for a moment in the powerful dance.
Night two already gave us Contemporary Designer of the Year winner Laura Tanzer Designs. This lady right here brought her Capital 'A' game to the runway with her eye on the prize.
Kudos to Laura Tanzer for taking her designer bootcamp education and bumping her new collection up a notch.
I expect to see Laura Tanzer in high-end stores one day. Great job!
The naming of Model of the Year winners (male and female) was also revealed.
Isiah and Cierra for being called to duty as the Phoenix Fashion Week's Male and Female Model of the Year 2016.
Ok! Enough with all the chatter. Let's get to the tremendously jam-packed runway show. Up first:

Wow! Rocky Gathercole is RI-DI-COU-LOUS with his taking-command-of-the-runway imagination. This collection pays respect to the LGBTQ community. He made sure the audience received a fashionable runway show with all the glitz and glam. Erotic catsuits to crystalized body suits were the rage on the catwalk. Who knew?!?
Yas Couture, Rachad Itani, and Dalida Ayach was so yummy with such classy couture that made any girl swoon. Aaahhhh....I want more! I want more!
Once again, Executive Director Brian Hill and his team at Phoenix Fashion Week made this years' event, once again top notch. Kudos #PhxFW!
See you on the runway....in 2017!
