This Friday evening, Sept. 17, Fashion Group International and Local First Arizona will be “Keeping It Local” in an event connecting style-savvy Valley residents with AZ-based artisans, entrepreneurs and designers, making for a true shopping extravaganza.
From 5 to 9 p.m., more than 30 of the Valley’s top fashion, beauty and accessories products and services will gather at the Legend City Studios (pictured above) in downtown Phoenix.
Every participating vendor will be donating to the raffle and offering discounts on their products and services, such as a travel/makeup bag with every purchase from Moonstruck Fashion Accessories, and Posh a la Mode will be giving shoppers a $20 gift certificate to use at the event. Raffle items include free tickets to Scottsdale Fashion Week, a sterling/Swarovski necklace, a pair of earrings valued at more than $250 donated by Amy Mac Jewelry, and a set of $350 Milk Eyelash extensions contributed by Designer Eyelashes. Not to mention, local experts on indulgence the Arizona Spa Girls will also be at the event to share their tips on the best pampering available in the Valley.
The event is going to be a great chance to support local artisans, as well as score some pretty sweet loot, too. Tickets are $10 each, and can be purchased here.
