PHOENIX FASHION WEEK RETURNS TO THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN PHOENIX
6TH Annual ‘Spring into Style’ Highlights Arizona’s Top Stylists and Spring Runway Trends at Arizona Center
Phoenix Fashion Week kicks off its 2015 series of events this month by teaming up with Downtown Phoenix’s own Arizona Center for the sixth-annual “Spring into Style” runway showcase. Hosted by Arizona Center, “Spring into Style” serves as a tribute to top stylists and showcases on-trend spring fashions set to the sounds of internationally-renowned DJ Q. On Saturday, March 21st, starting at 6:00p.m. with ‘The Taste of Arizona Center’, guests will have the opportunity to sample the best bites from local Arizona Center restaurants. Guests will also be treated to a fashionable outdoor Meet & Greet Mixer, where they will be able to shop stylish local pop-up shops with the backdrop of beautiful Downtown Phoenix. Media can enjoy a luxurious Log-In Lounge experience, and attendees can take in an interactive spring fashion show in the lush courtyard featuring hair and makeup by Salon Estique beginning at 8:30pm, followed by an after party directly following the show, hosted inside 1130 The Restaurant.
“Our team is excited to again offer a unique and popular fashion event to the heart of downtown Phoenix. Last year, it was a sold out event and with these very talented (6) stylists, we anticipate it being a hard ticket to get this year,” said Brian Hill, Executive Director of Phoenix Fashion Week.
This special runway show serves as one of several preview events produced by Phoenix Fashion Week in anticipation of the Fall event scheduled to take place October 1 – 4, 2015 at Talking Stick Resort.
Event partners include: Arizona Center, 1130 The Restaurant, Boom Digitus, and Salon Estique.
