Phoenix Fashion Week is hosting their 6th annual ‘Emerging Designer Announcement at the TONI&GUY Academy in Scottsdale. This official announcement highlights the fall 2014 Emerging Designer line-up, along with a trunk sale by this year’s accessory designers presented for the first time to the public.
This year, Phoenix Fashion Week is introducing 14 new Emerging Designers to show at fashion week in the fall. These designers have the opportunity to launch their brand at the ninth annual Phoenix Fashion Week at Talking Stick Resort, October 1-4, 2014. This year’s Emerging Designers were discovered following Phoenix Fashion Week’s successful ten-city tour of the United States, including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, St. Louis, Dallas, and Chicago and Phoenix.
While these designers come from various cities around the country, Phoenix Fashion Week is thrilled to reveal that for the first time ever, 7 of the 14 Emerging Designers competing for ‘Designer of the Year’ are locally based in Phoenix.

Past Emerging Designer contest winners will be the evening’s special guests at the announcement. “If you look up the definition of challenge, it’s a competition or contest. That’s exactly what our Emerging Designer Bootcamp has become, acting as a launch pad for the best emerging designers in the nation,” said Brian Hill, Executive Director for Phoenix Fashion Week.
These next “IT” designers will compete for a $10,000 (value) prize package consisting of goods and services to help launch their brand. The Emerging Designer Announcement event is supported by TONI&GUY Hairdressing. An after party will directly follow the event at 10pm and is open to the public.
