Tucson Fashion Week 2014 Wrap-Up


Beauty, sophistication, class…these words are an accurate description of not only Mercedes-Benz, but the models and designers of Tucson Fashion Week 2014, sponsored by Mercedes Benz of Tucson. Many events occurred from the 16th through 19th of October, but the main attraction was  “Film Tucson Presents: Project Runway Showcase” at the Fox Theatere. Featuring local and national designers, the event was a smashing success, and brought the hottest trends to the desert.

Fashion Week started off with a launch party and design competiton judged by U of A Alumni, and fashion leader Nathan Lee Colkitt. Each designer was given an architectual design and tasked to create an article of clothing based on the given design.  The results, put together by Angela Johnson, Kelia Gallagher, Kimberly Loyd, and Quinlan Wilhite, were stunning to see, and the models made each piece look flawless.

Saturday night was the Project Runway Showcase, and this was two hours of lights, music, and a true showcase of how fashion has evolved and is continuing to evolve. Bert Keeter, Korto Momolu, Daniel Esquivel, Mila Hermanovski, and Peach Carr provided some gorgeous designs and the Fox Theatre has never looked better!

All in all, the four days brought some national exposure to the Sonoran desert, and Mercedes Benz of Tucson was proud to sponsor one of the fastest growing fashion events in the country.  The jewel of the southwest shone brightly this past week, and it’s all thanks to the great designers, models, and organizers who put together this extravagent week.
