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.

fashionrocks-mimIt was nice being able to dress up and see everyone else so dressed up. And look at those cute cupcakes!

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
