Now in its fifth year, Scottsdale Fashion Week is planning to wow even the trendiest fashionistas with this high-energy event. Celebrating fashion, lifestyle, and fun there is no wonder why Arizona’s premier fashion show attracts up-and-coming designers alongside nationally and internationally renowned names.
Featuring two dozen runway shows, Scottsdale Fashion Week will take place November 4-6. This year, Scottsdale Fashion Week is inviting guests to celebrate the beauty and artistic nature of fashion through the theme, “Art of Fashion”. The event will move to Scottsdale Fashion Square Drive (North of Barneys), known for its style, upscale shopping, and vibrant fashion community.
The goal of Scottsdale Fashion Week is to create an event that will not just offer fashion shows, but also charitable and educational components as well. Half of the proceeds from ticket sales go to support the Junior League of Phoenix, whose mission is dedicated to promoting voluntarism and early childhood education and development. The event will also offer an educational forum on Saturday, November 6 with a notable selection of speakers and demonstrations that will assist those looking to advance their fashion knowledge.

Community Night brings the attention to the local design community and will exclusively feature Arizona fashion professionals. The line up begins at 6:35pm and will include an accessory show, high school student show, college student show, and local fashion designers show.
