Upcoming Event -Scottsdale Fashion Week

Hello Shopping fans, if you are of the persuasion that loves to linger at the mall and shop until you drop then Scottsdale Fashion Week is for you. Though it doesn’t bear specific resemblance to traditional runway extravaganzas in NY or LA which were created for the unveiling of new collections to buyers, press and these days- front rows full of celebrities, the Scottsdale version is a fun a three-day, high-energy event that celebrates fashion and lifestyle. And give the public a glimpse at up-and-coming designers as well as national and internationally renowned names.

Let’s face it loves, in Scottsdale it’s about seeing and being seen of course.
Once again there will be dual stages, the Main Stage at the Scottsdale Waterfront and the Southbridge Stage on Stetson Dr that will host over two dozen runway shows. Kicking off on Thursday, November 5 with the Wearable ArtWalk Preview Fashion Show from 6-7 pm at the SouthBridge Open Runway. The Wearable ArtWalk from 7-9 pm features models showcasing one-of-a-kind pieces of ‘art-to-wear’ clothing and jewelry from nationally and internationally acclaimed wearable artists. More than 20 galleries along Main Street, Marshall Way and Stetson Dr will be joining in with provocative shows and exhibits. Last year there were some highly impressive pieces and if anyone needs a little attention this year during the tough economy it’s the art galleries so stop by and take a peek.

    I am so confused on the difference oh Phoenix fashion week and Scottsdale fashion wee. Why is Phoenix fashion week in Scottsdale and can someone explain the difference please?

  • Kaytlin says:

    Love that Narciso Rodriguez dress.

  • Ellie says:

    How exciting! I really love that first dress.

  • diane says:

    Dearest Susie, This is the question on the lips of those in the fashion industry all over town..why do we need two fashion weeks? To answer your question in readers digest form, the two fashion weeks were started by two different companies… and a little tid-bit that hardly anyone knows…Scottsdale Fashion Week was originally not going to be a fashion week at all, it was going to be a women’s expo but Scottsdale seems to love a good fashion show so it morphed into what is called “Fashion Week”

  • Cassie says:
