Phoenix Fashion Week 2016 – Night One
Grand Opening of FABRIC – Tempe, AZ

Phoenix Fashion Week 2016 – Night One

This year’s presentation of Phoenix Fashion Week marked its ninth year as being the most well-known fashion events throughout the Southwest region. The festivities, held at Talking Stick Resort, took place over the span of three nights, with up to ten designers per night. Each night, guests were treated to shop straight from the runway designers at the Style Villa Marketplace, and walk the red carpet. There were themed nights, the first night being ‘Community Night,’ featuring local designers, as well as the first batch of the emerging designers.

This time around, I’ll only be presenting photo diaries of the collections from all three nights.

Grand Opening of FABRIC – Tempe, AZ

Recently, Phoenix designer and CEO of Labelhorde– Angela Johnson, joined forces with other Arizona fashion companies- Arizona Fashion Source and Arizona Apparel Foundation and created one overall fashion resource center- FABRIC (Fashion And Business Resource Innovation Center). The center is based in Tempe, and provides studio space, event space, incubator services, design studio supplier, and showroom space for Arizona-based students, designers, brands, and fashionistas who want to create, learn, and connect with one another.

I attended their Grand Opening celebration at their new three-story, 23,000 square foot building in December. Kicking off the event was a fabric cutting ceremony with Tempe’s Mayor Mitchell and Johnson, followed by a self-guided tour of the facilities. After the tour, we listened as local TV personality Pat McMahon spoke to us about the building and about the non-profit Arizona Apparel Foundation. A runway presentation by the in-house technical designer Tabitha Holmes and her brand- House of Holmes followed the discussion.

This facility is a great new addition to Tempe, and the city of Phoenix. I look forward to watching it, and Arizona’s fashion industry, grow and prosper. For more information, go to AZ Apparel Foundation’s website.
