The Project Runway Showcase & Project Arizona fashion show is only one spotlight event during Tucson Fashion Week (October 16th – 19th). Taking place at different city venues, the four-day event brings together creative people from all levels of the fashion industry for four days of outstanding fashionable experiences, showcasing the work of emerging talent, industry experts, icons, artists, and more. Creative Directors Paula Taylor and Melanie Sutton have created a world-class event that Tucson can be very proud of—attracting major industry talents as well as an ever-growing list of attendees.
