Jadapa and I attended the Emerging Designers Showcase held at Toni & Guy in Scottsdale, Arizona on June 14. And how lucky we were to see a Fashion Show of the up-and-coming designers that will be competing throughout the next few months for a spot in the Phoenix Fashion Week 2013!
The evening started off with drinks and mingling with the designers themselves followed by the Fashion Show, where each designer displayed one look in their upcoming line. We were blown away with the amount of talent we saw throughout the evening. All of the designers were amazing, but a few really stood out. Ja’ire International Couture, Trang Nguyen, Herbert Victoria, and Loin Cloth, a mens brand, were our chosen favorites. Each of our favorite designers brought forth their own creative pieces while staying true to their original message as a brand. After the designers presented, a brief Q&A session allowed the media to ask them questions about their style and about themselves.
All attendees made our way over to Spanish Fly Lounge Mexican Beach Club for the after party hosted by Phoenix Fashion Week. I am so excited to see what else the designers bring to the table in the next few weeks, and to see the winner in October at Phoenix Fashion Week!
