Phoenix Fashion Week 2011

Phoenix Fashion Week 2011: Thursday Night Recap

Last night, Scottsdale Living staff attended Phoenix Fashion Week 2011’s first runway show at Talking Stick Resort — which consisted of fashion suitable for a gamut of lifestyles, from lounge wear to office attire to swimwear.

Last night’s designers included Velvet Boutique, located in Chandler; Te’ Boutique, located at the Scottsdale Quarter, offering men and women’s sportswear, business and evening attire; Bilby & Moss, a sponsor of PHXFW, with a comfortable clothing line made with light fabrics and designs; Retro Brand, a line boasting that “vintage feel” and plenty of university logos and mentions, including Arizona State University Devils and the University of Arizona ‘Cats; and Veronica Brett from New York City, who designs swimwear in virtually every color, specifically for breast cancer survivors and women who have had mastectomies.

Emerging designers at last night’s Phoenix Fashion Week event included Deeds of Love, fashion that gives back; Dejamone, blending fashion design, graphic design and web design into one cohesive unit; and Sebastien Millon, a world-renowned artist who focuses his imaginative drawings on animals, kids and more.
