Scottsdale is the second stop for Project Ethos on its west coast tour, bringing creative artists, consumers and media together. David Friedberg of Project Ethos Arizona says, “We strive to advance our production and talent presentation every year. Holding the event at W Scottsdale is an exciting step for us, surely giving the local audience our best show yet.”

Featured designers in for this year’s event are Traver Rains (T.

Past live musical performances include: Bruno Mars, Colbie Caillat, Far East Movement, LMFAO, and One Republic, among others.

In 2012, Project Ethos introduced their online web series for consumers worldwide to experience this unique event. It allowed everyone access to view behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive interviews with artists and designers. Within the past few years, Project Ethos has sold hundreds of paintings and brought various clothing lines into stores.

Estrella Mountain Presents: Fashion Wars II, 2011, Scottsdale, Ariz.

EMCC’s Fashion Wars II Spotlights Local Talent, Entreprenuers

Estrella Mountain Community College’s (EMCC) Fashion Club is holding their second annual Fashion Wars Fashion Show. The up-and-coming club is designed to bring a trend-based audience to the West Valley.

“I expect a big turn out for Fashion Wars II; the first show had 250 people in attendance,” says Jennifer Complot, registration coordinator and backstage manager. “Now that we have a larger venue, I expect a bigger turn out.”

Among many local designers, Bri Bridge and Noctis Thread will participate in the show. Both designers have been featured in the Phoenix Fashion Week designers competition. The focus for this show is to bring local entrepreneurs recognition while tying in creative new line ideas for vendors to take interest in.

“Most fashion shows are in Scottsdale, and some people can’t or don’t want to travel that far to see a good show,” Complot says. “Fashion Wars II is offering a great show at a great venue for a great price.”

Not only will fashion students, vendors and models be present, but local talent as well. Candice Chavez, an award winning gospel singer, will be the headlining performance for the evening. Her inspirational talent has been broadcast in the 2011 Black History Month Gospel Celebration.

The EMCC Fashion Club consists of 300 Estrella Mountain students who are interested in all aspects of the fashion industry, from design, hair and makeup, to choreography and public relations.

“The community college doesn’t have a program for fashion it only has classes,” says Christina Moreno, public relations for Fashion Wars II. “Because of the budget and a growing number of students interested in fashion in the West Valley we want to get exposure.”

During the show, a runway walk for the best dressed will be awarded to competitors who put the best outfit together. They don’t have to make their own outfit; they just need to show they are capable of putting together an outfit that looks great.

Raffle tickets will be sold to benefit the EMCC Estrella Cares program, which will help provide EMCC students with food, shelter and clothing products as well as job placements. Blu Sol, a local spa massage company, has donated a spa package that includes hair, skin and body treatments for the winning raffle winner.

“This is a place for young entrepreneurs to show their skills, advertise themselves and network,” said Complot. “This show will impact the community because it will help the fashion-interested  people in the West Valley have a place to associate.”
