Fashion by Robert Black Opens Phoenix Fashion Week 2013 at Talking Stick Resort
Melissa Fossum Fashion by Robert Black opened Phoenix Fashion Week 2013.
A little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll, Fashion by Robert Black opened Phoenix Fashion Week 2013 at Talking Stick Resort.
Despite the strong opening, the annual fashion event didn't maintain its stylish momentum throughout the evening, which featured local and national designers, including current Project Runway contestant Bradon McDonald.
The first showing proved to be the most entertaining and well put together, not a surprise given Black's superstar status in Phoenix fashion and his beautifully curated, eponymous Scottsdale boutique. The musical selection of rockabilly and girl group jams set an exciting tone that the clothing selection matched in colorful character. With glitzy greaser looks, sparkly and embroidered suits worthy of The King himself, and impeccable styling, from a box purse covered in landscape imagery to perfectly coiffed throwback hair, Black's show set the bar high.
Unfortunately, it was a little too high for the remainder of the evening's established and emerging designers to clear.
