Fashion Rocks MIM


Thursday night I attended Fashion Rocks MIM, which is a fashion show hosted by Phoenix Fashion Week in collaboration with the MIM--the Musical Instrument Museum. The show celebrated the music and culture of each of the four designers' home countries. As a special treat, it also showcased the stylists and how they styled the designers' clothing.

This was my first fashion show in Phoenix and also my first time at the MIM, which houses the largest collection of musical instruments in the world. Here are photos from the event!

tucker-dress-fashionshowThe dress I'm wearing is from the Go Collection at Target: Tucker by Gaby Basora. The cool thing about the dress is you can choose to switch it around and wear the back as the front or vice versa.

MIM-fashionrocksThe MIM is a pretty cool place and definitely an excellent choice of venue for a fashion show. It would have been nice to have been able to explore more of it.

Jill Laine, Brian Swan, Shannon Campbell and Jai Anderson

The Designers:
Maria Janossy of Hungary, who runs the label Mariska; Galina Mihalva of Bulgaria, who runs the label Galina Couture; Joanna de'Shay who owns Black Russian Label; and the guitar company Fender, which has a casual apparel line

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

First of all, you look ADORABLE. I mean it. you have such a lovely smile, a better accessory than anything you could pick in a designer store. And your style is just awesome.

The show looks great. Designs are drama and fun, and that's top-most fashion priority right now. I had a great weekend and the week refuses to slow down.
