Buy your tickets now to attend the leading fashion industry event in the Southwest, Phoenix Fashion Week! Taking place October 14 – 15, the organization focuses on their mission; “to bridge the gap between national and international designers and premier retailers and top fashion media.” Their end goal being “to garner global exposure for Arizona’s fashion industry.”
Marvel at 2022s Fall and Holiday collections from a variety of designers that’ll span over 20 runway shows throughout the two-day event. It’s about supporting sustainable fashion. Taking place at the Chateau Luxe in Phoenix, show tickets range from around $100 – $375.
The $375 tickets get you a VIP Front Row Experience full of champagne (in their coveted Chateau Luxe Champagne Lounge) and hors d’oeuvres, brought to you by Will Turner, an Award Winning Private Chef.
You always hear about New York Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, etc. so I was so excited when I learned that Phoenix has its very own. The event filled weekend is the result of the work Phoenix Fashion Week does within their three pillars; Fashion, Education, and Community.
In support of fashion, they help emerging designers get their name out there by bringing them together with some established designers. Over 30 designers will have the opportunity to showcase their unique style on the runway. Additionally, they host fashionistas, VIP’s fashion retailers, fashion influencers, and the media.
In terms of education, they bring some of the top industry experts to teach fashion seminars and workshops. And, the last pillar, community. During their FASHIONABLY PINK Runway Show in October, the proceeds will benefit local breast cancer organizations.
The full event schedule can be found here.
On Friday (Fabric Friday), Oct. 14, there will be eight fashion shows. There will be a Community Night Fashion Show that’ll showcase 12 Arizona-based emerging brands. There will be a Little Black Dress Competition, Established Brands, and then the Couture Finale.
On Saturday (Luxury Night), Oct. 15, there will be live performances and awards. Get ready for Runway Shows to the Model of the Year Competition, Couture Runways Shows, and more.
Every night the doors open at 5:30 p.m. on the red carpet. You’ll be able to shop from their Style Villa that consists of 12 Experiential Pop-Up Shops, before sitting down to enjoy the variety of Fashion Shows.
