Alright! I think I can officially say it is party time in the fashion sector. I don’t think anyone was ready for the seismic show we
The whole shindig felt like an exclusive viewing meant for the best of the best. The event was held at the swanky Ellure Nightclub located in none other than the ever-happening Old Town Scottsdale.
This year, the Phoenix
Fashion Week team did
things quite differently
which was a pleasant
surprise. We actually

valuable time to chill with the
designers intimately and get to
know them little better.

It’s amazing what you learn from such creative minds when you sit down face to face and chat.
There are such fresh new faces with eclectic stylings amongst the 2017 Emerging Designers. It was truly exhilarating being around that level of talent.
From the exquisite evening wear of Taussy Daniel in East Africa to sexy beachwear by ShaLaJa Swimwear in Atlanta, GA to Cliff D. Creations of the Phillippines. We got a little taste of it all.
Tucson, AZ is represented by
Qmulative Men's street wear and
home of the pocket square.
One ED who is on my radar is Moon Arrow. Oh how much fun was this young lady!
Her energy was very calming and drew you right in. Her brand is fun, sexy and just as unique as she is.
She’s quite passionate about her craft and it shows.
One familiar face I was super proud to see was Arizona’s very own Native American designer ACONAV, who who had the pleasure to grace the runway in the Fall 2016. I have beyond enjoyed watching designer Loren Aragon grow his brand to the level that it is today.
|ACONAV (l) - myself|
I expect a certain level of wearable couture from Aconav where women could visualize themselves in 5-star wearable fashion. And the fact they are returning to the runway for a second year screams volumes on his level of talent. ACONAV didn’t come to play they came to win.
Tonight we got a sneak peek and
I mean a tiny glimpse, into the
world of each emerging fashion
designers and the accessory
designers. But first up was the
up close and personal look at
2017 Top 40 Models.
Things got heated up quick with the winning of the HeadshotChallenge. It’s beyond me on how any of them could lose. They all look so amazing, guys and girls.
The competition looks fierce with quite a few new faces in the lineup.
Congratulations to Greyson Scofield for being named Best Male Headshot and Khayla Munir for Best Female Headshot.They are definitely the land of the pretty people.

|Executive Director Brian Hill|
If what we saw unveiled at the launch party is an indication of what’s to come, Arizona will definitely gain some fashionable street cred after the big showing in October. The diversity within the emerging designers is unfathomable. From simplistic in nature to red carpet ready-to-wear. These budding designers are going to give us a great show. My money's on this year being the best year EVER for Phoenix Fashion Week. Brian Hill….I think you and the team outdid yourself this time.
