Why this French designer thinks Tempe needs a fashion week
When you think about fashion in Arizona, you might think about Phoenix Fashion Week.
The annual event has launched some local designers' careers and has grown into something a lot of us look forward to every year. But this weekend, another event is entering the scene — this time from Tempe.
Tempe Fashion Week kicks off Oct. 2 at Arizona State University's Sun Devil Stadium.
It is the brainchild of French transplant Sebastien Verstraet, a fashion photographer here who owns a Valley modeling agency. The Show spoke with him to learn about the event, and he said it’s something he’s wanted to do for a long time.
