Described by “Forbes” magazine as “The Leading Fashion Industry Event in the Southwest,” Phoenix Fashion Week is set to once again dazzle attendees with its stunning blend of fashion, education, and community. Slated for October 20 and 21, at the picturesque Chateau Luxe, this year promises an elevated experience that accentuates the essence of Southwest fashion.

Phoenix Fashion Week has carved a niche for itself as a bridge connecting national and international designers with top-tier retailers, fashion aficionados, and global fashion media. By casting a global spotlight, the organization aims to propel Arizona’s burgeoning fashion scene onto the world stage.

The much-anticipated two-day event will feature over 20 designer runway shows, displaying the latest fall and holiday 2023 collections. Attendees can look forward to a range of trunk sales, statewide retail events, and enriching workshops helmed by renowned industry professionals. But that’s not all; post-event after-parties promise to keep the fashion fervor burning bright.

One of the highlights of the first night, Friday, Oct. 20, is the Fashionably Pink Survivor & Celebrity Runway Show. This heartwarming event brings breast cancer survivors and celebrities together on the runway, raising awareness and funds for the local 501c3 charity Check for a Lump. Through this platform, Phoenix Fashion Week amplifies its commitment to community service, ensuring attendees can directly contribute to the noble cause. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and with limited availability, fashion enthusiasts are encouraged to secure their spots soon.

But the evening doesn’t end there. The Community Night Designer Fashion Show will spotlight 12 emergent Arizona-based brands, giving them a platform to shine and an opportunity to engage with a wider audience.

The opulence of the Phoenix Fashion Week experience is epitomized by the VIP Front Row Experience. Those lucky enough to snag these tickets will be ushered into the exclusive Chateau Luxe Champagne Lounge. Here, guests can indulge in gourmet hors d’oeuvres and a VIP swag bag bursting with handpicked, fashion-forward lifestyle treasures.

The overarching message of Phoenix Fashion Week is evident in its tri-fold slogan: Fashion. Education. Community. As the Southwest’s premier fashion event, it is not just about the glitz and glamour but also about fostering education and strengthening the community bonds.

With a blend of top global brands, up-and-coming designers, and Arizona’s top models, Phoenix Fashion Week promises a spectacle that is not to be missed.

Join the celebration, witness the innovation, and be part of a community that’s steering Arizona’s fashion destiny. Chateau Luxe, is located at 1175 E. Lone Cactus Dr., in Phoenix. For more information, visit
