Three Best Looks from Phoenix Fashion Week's MIM Rocks Fashion 2013
MIM Rocks Fashion 2013 was a little off-key. The event paired two designers and three boutiques with five stylists to highlight the influence that music has on fashion. While the venue, the MIM, certainly fit the musical vibe, none of the looks modeled during the fashion show hit that promised note. Minus the lack of tuneful inspiration, the event did bring a blend of spring-ready styles to the runway.
Melissa Fossum MIM Rocks Fashion 2013 stylists Rochelle York, Yeka Bruner, Amir Saebi, Brian Swan, and Fawn Cheng
The ensembles presented by Divaz Boutique, styled by Yeka Bruner, and Clothes Minded, styled by Rochelle York, were least interesting because the clothing was simple, not challenging, and not particularly memorable. It's already for sale in stores and, frankly, isn't worth critiquing alongside designers.
Bri Seeley, PFW's 2012 emerging designer styled by Brian Swan, and ENVY by Khanh, one of 2012's emerging designer finalists styled by Fawn Cheng, brought more visual interest to the table, though they both were showing looks super-similar to things they presented last fall at Phoenix Fashion Week. Amir's La Voûte owner and designer Amir Saebi styled his own pieces from his boutique as well as some of his own designs.
Our favorites easily stuck out among the rest. Here are the three best looks from MIM Rocks Fashion 2013.
