After a sold-out dinner and fashion show, azf and Cloth & Flame are excited to make Fashion in the Desert an annual event where high fashion and innovative culinary creations collide. 

Beneath the twinkling lights, guests enjoyed an evening of fashion, music, cuisine and connection on April 3, 2022 with a delicious multi-course dinner crafted by Cloth & Flame executive chef Nick Rusticus, while models from The Agency AZ and Margaret Merritt Productions walked the open-air runway in the latest high-end fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue with the Superstition Mountains serving as a stunning backdrop.

As the sun set, guests danced the night away underneath the stars to live music from the acclaimed Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra that gave an exclusive performance. A portion of ticket proceeds also benefited Harvest Compassion Center, the azf 2021 Nonprofit of the Year.


Stay tuned for more information on the 2023 Fashion in the Desert event, a truly one-of-a-kind experience and collaboration that showcases desert style like you've never seen it before.
