Phoenix Fashion Week Takes Flight this Weekend

October will kick off with a weekend full of high society events and high-quality fashion as the Fifth Annual Phoenix Fashion Week takes center stage at Hotel Valley Ho starting Oct. 1. Commencement begins with “Fashionably Pink” opening gala where AZ models will strut the runway wearing only pink to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The rest of the weekend will be a grand showcase of more than 24 prominent designers and 12 emerging designers. Die-hard fashionistas can attend the design seminars each day or shop the designer samples sales. But everyone must attend the Fashion Week after parties taking place in Scottsdale!
