It's Fashion Time in the City and Everyone is buzzzzzing...

Posted: Oct 07 2015



Fabulous chic Hat, perfect it-bag with beading and a pop of color, ethnic inspired necklaces, BRL original pieces and celebrity red carpet stroll? Check, check and double check.  Looks like I was all set to walk that red carpet on Oct. 1st - 3rd at Talking Stick Resort.

What did you wear this past weekend to Phoenix Fashion Week?  Well I decided to vamp it up one night, send it fringing the next and keep it simple in black on Friday night!  I picked three days of perfect BRL fabulousness and was excited to see old and new friends during this year's Phoenix Fashion Week. I focused heavily on the details and added a few WOW surprises such as over the top accessories from Phoenix Jewelry Designer Lana May, an Artistic Henna Tattoo and nails that were perfectly stiletto sharp!!!  It was all about the accessories this year.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Phoenix has brought along and harvested many creative fashion designers such as myself and the numbers are growing! We will have exclusive access into the creative minds of a few other up and comers competing in this year's Phoenix Fashion Week Emerging Designer Competition!  More importantly, we are dedicating the next two blogs to the Fashionable First Ladies of Phoenix Fashion Week. These six fierce women along with countless others, take the lead on orchestrating what is the quintessential hallmark of Fashion Events in Arizona!  Phoenix Fashion Week is the leading fashion industry event in the Southwest. The organization’s mission is to bridge the gap between national and international designers and premier retailers and prestige fashion media. Phoenix Fashion Week’s ultimate goal is to garner global exposure for Arizona’s fashion industry. Through educational fashion seminars, year-round fashion events, and charitable partnerships, Phoenix Fashion Week is gaining rapid acclaim for its community-service efforts and for infusing world-class innovation into the Southwest. Fashion. Education. Humanity.

During our Interviews you will get a chance to meet several of the LEADING ladies standing side by side with Executive Director Brian Hill that make this Magical Fashion week happen.  They include:

     Brenna Moses - Operations Director                                  Lauren Pfingstag - Media Director 

     Abbei Marquis - Designers & Buyers Leader Christina Ziegler - Guest Relations                             Dynelle Rodriguez - Style Leader                        Vanessa Gonzales - Style Leader

We asked these Ladies what success looks like to them, what keeps them up at night, what motivates them and why FASHION among many other questions.  Stay posted as we will continue to embark on the wonderful concept that tugs at our hearts and captivates our artistic minds: FASHION!  How wonderful that I didn't have to travel anywhere to be consumed by it. Yeah for me!!!  Yes, Phoenix Fashion Week was worth it and a great way to spend three days consumed by everything stylish.  Thursday night was the kick-off and we intentionally delayed last week's blog post in hopes of bringing you some red carpet pics and showing you just how #askjo (aka me) will be bringing her A game to Fashion week. 


SO WHAT DID I WEAR?  Well here are a few pics for your viewing pleasure....Enjoy my lovely birds!
