The exciting events will continue at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale.

Runway shows will feature fourteen established designers and twelve emerging designers. Industry experts will hold daily Fashion Education seminars to guide entrepreneurs on how to build their brand and grow their fashion business. For the first time ever, the general public can enjoy the signature Style Villa shopping experience at 5:00 pm each day during the event.
This year’s established designers are: Kent Denim, Mabella Chic, Davinci, Café Bleu, Mariska, JOI by Jewel Oribe, Madison Park Collective, Jean Paul Jeune, Silvia Bours, SJ Couture, Bel Kazan, Enzoani, and Elevee. Featured designer, Furne One (pronounced ‘fern oh-nay’), is a celebrity-favorite. His creations have been worn by Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Heidi Klum, and more.
Emerging designers were carefully selected after completing a challenging “boot camp” where they received assignments and were graded for their efforts. In addition to debuting their lines at Phoenix Fashion Week, they are competing for a prize package valued at $10,000 to help launch their brand. These designers are: ENVY by Kahn, Sew Twisted Designs, Bri Seeley, Ofra Style, JHaus, Samantha Patterson, EYE Thread, Paulie Gibson, Italia Rocks Couture, Shawl Dawls, Suzanne Lay, and Living Dreams.
