This week, New York Fashion Week sets the stage with high-fashion for spring, yet you’ll have to wait until next year for stores to carry the trends. But on Saturday, Nov. 6, Scottsdale Fashion Square retailers Betsey Johnson, CH Carolina Herrera, MaxMara, Ted Baker and Tory Burch, will take the main stage at Scottsdale Fashion Week and showcase five high-energy fashion shows with designs available immediately in the stores – a plus to our own Valley Fashion Week.
The spectacular shows start at 6:30 p.m. with beautiful models provided by The Agency AZ, local well-known modeling agency and its director, Margaret Merritt. Here’s a sampling of what to expect from the retailer line up:
- Betsey Johnson: known for celebrating exuberant and over the top women’s apparel,
- CH Carolina Herrera: referent of luxury, sophistication and elegance in the world of fashion,
- MaxMara: the modern Italian-based women’s apparel retailer
- Ted Baker: the catchy London-based men’s and women’s apparel retailer,
- Tory Burch: the always feminine signature label for women’s apparel
“All five shows will undoubtedly excite our guests with one-of-a-kind fashion and high energy not found anywhere else in the state,” said Kate Birchler, marketing manager for Scottsdale Fashion Square. “We are thrilled to have such an amazing collection of first-to-the-market retailers take the runway this year.
Along with the Saturday night runway shows, fashion-lovers can take advantage of the great events taking place inside Scottsdale Fashion Square.
