2017 Emerging Designer Bootcamp

Emerging Designer Bootcamp: Each year the Phoenix Fashion Week team travels to over (10) cities (New York, Los Angeles, NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Seattle, St. Louis, Dallas, Tucson, and Phoenix) in search of the best emerging designers to apply for our challenging 4-month emerging designer bootcamp.
 PHXFW.16 Designer Bootcamp (2)

These curated emerging designers had the unique opportunity to strengthen their business skills in a real time curriculum taught by industry experts from NY to LA, as well as grow their brand by competing in various fashion business challenges presented to them over the (4) months leading up to fashion week this past  October.

With a focus on business skills that range form business planning, marketing plans, cut & sew, retail math and social media, the emerging designer bootcamp also has real time fashion challenges wrapped throughout the curriculum.
The category (Couture, Contemporary, Lifestyle and Accessory) winners of the Emerging Designer Contest were officially announced each night of fashion week.
Congratulations to Isy B.– Lifestyle Designer of the Year 2016  | Laura Tanzer– Contemporary Designer of the Year 2016  | and Barbara Bultman– Couture Designer of the Year 2016.
