Hi lovelies!! So happy to be back from traveling and blogging! I recently was in Arizona attending Phoenix Fashion Week with Jadapa and visiting with family. It was such an amazing experience to see the Emerging Designers of 2013, display their final pieces in a 3 night, runway extravaganza, ending with an amazing performance by our girl, international pop sensation, Yasmeen!
Our interviews with established designers: Joanna de’Shay of Black Russian Label, and Bri Seeley, emerging designers: Clary Ryan and Sam Mascaro of Loin Cloth LA, Herbert Victoria, Jai’re and Nekia Hattley of Jai’re International Couture and 2013 Emerging designer winner, Dolcessa are coming up so stay tuned!
Each night would start with 3-4 established designers hitting the runway with their upcoming seasons looks. Following a brief intermission, 4 Emerging Designers would showcase the designs that they have been working on since June! We have been following the emerging designers over the summer and became very close with a few of them. Throughout this experience, we became a little family, it was so great seeing everyone and how much they have grown as artists and business people. We are so proud of all of them!
Special thanks to Brian Hill, Abbei Marquis, Lauren Pfingstag, Christina Ziegler, Brenna Moses, the Phoenix Fashion Week team and fellow blogger, Sheila Vertuno.
These are a few of our favorite looks from each night:
