Our Top Picks for Phoenix Fashion Week

Posted by Tara and Devin

We recently had the opportunity to attend the Shop Garment District Event for Phoenix Fashion Week. It was incredible getting to meet all of the designers before the show and discuss their style and pieces they've designed for this season. Each one of them are so kind and extremely talented. We decided to share our 3 Favorite Designers for the upcoming Phoenix Fashion Week in October!

The first collection that we immediately fell in love with was the clothing line from Rayan. She makes dresses look elegant and very fashionable. We love that her dresses were also modest and can be worn to any special event.

It was incredible watching these models walk the runway in these gorgeous dresses. We particularly fell in love with this last piece. The color, the print, the cut, the lace detailing... swoon! We wish we had one of these dresses in our own closets!

 Misha Mendicino

Next we liked Misha Mendicino Designs. With her lightweight and flowy pieces, this line of clothing is perfect for the Arizona heat. Our favorite from the runway was this elephant print dress. It looks classy and effortless and who doesn't love elephants?! Plus she has a great cause behind her designs.

Her next dress would be perfect for relaxing pool-side at a resort. Love the print and color.

Jaqueline Nicole

Our third pick was Jacqueline Nicole. She is a young and determined new designer. We love her style and especially her sequin skirts! The sequins on these skirts are reversible so you can change the color of your outfit at any time by simply running your hand over the material in one direction or the other. It's so beautiful! If  you look at the image above you can see how the skirt is rubbed all over to create a opalescent look. We visited with Jaqueline and she showed us this skirt in a black/emerald color as well. It's amazing.

We love all of the pink in her current line and can't wait to see more from this up-and-coming designer in October!

In addition to these fabulous designers, we'd like to mention two of our favorite accessories designers as well. These designers had their pieces featured in the show and we fell in love with them and their designs. Here we are at the Clutch Jewelry booth with owner and designer Stacy Eden showing us the versatility of her pieces. We loved her originality and flair.

Next we really liked the Tom Horn Collection. These handmade bags and clutches are simply divine! This collection is marketed as "rugged, classic, and timeless" and we couldn't agree more.

Tara had her eye on a cobalt blue clutch we saw at their booth and Devin is pining away for the cow hide bag coming to the Fall collection, shown below. Gorgeous!
