Around 8:15 pm PHXFW Director, Brian Hill grabbed the mic and the fashion show began!

The first show was “Statement Sleeves” by Style Stalkers. Boldness, elegance and sleeves. The perfect opener for a night of originality, chicness and stardom!

The second show was “Floral” by Ashley Paige. A mix of feminine and edginess that gave a fresh look to the traditional spring trend. Fabulous!

The third show was “Traveler” by Sarah Parks (One of my personal favorites!). Handsome men, wearing perfectly put together suits, taking us somewhere exotic. What else can I say?

The fourth show was “Yellow” by us (Sandra Mateu Yotty/ Gitana Styling). Different shades of yellow paired in a variety of ways with different colors. Inspired by the idea of spending “A day on a yacht.” The goal, to help women incorporate the bright and bold hue into their everyday wardrobes {We will cover our yellow show in detail next week! Stay tuned}.

The fifth show was “Mixed Prints” by Mitch Phillips. An explosion of creativity with every outfit. One of the audience’s favorite for sure. Each look embodied the eclectic, fun and talent of its creator. Excellent!

The sixth and final show – a show stopper – “Punk” by Parisa Zahedi. Earlier Parisa said she wanted to show that punk wasn’t dead and so she did. Another extremely creative soul that closed the night on a high note! (A rock and roll, leather, fish nets kind of note!).

The hair and makeup was provided by Toni&Guy USA and MUZE Makeup (Incredible job!).
