“The Great Fashion Depression:” a Phoenix Fashion Week Movie


The recession of the economy has affected the best of people, except for us devoted fashionistas.

The Great Fashion Depression, produced by 3 Chicks Production, is a story based on the rising success of Phoenix Fashion Week despite the recession.

The film takes place in modern day Phoenix, but it is created and designed with elements from the 1920s.

The story goes a little like this:

People of the fashion industry are struggling to find jobs. Make up artists are working for the circus. Models are in the streets displaying, “will work for fashion” signs. Designers and boutiques are closing down as the sales of big chain markets are on the rise. Then, our very own PHXFW Director, Brian Hill, the “savior of fashion,” comes to the rescue.

Hill becomes the “ray of hope” for these fashionistas and produces a fashion show for them. Thanks to the show’s success, fashion and venue come back to life again.

The film also features PHXFW team members Celestial Williams, Jennifer O’Bannon and Herman Plank, as well as local Arizona models, designers and fashionistas.

The Great Fashion Depression will be released at this year’s Phoenix Fashion Week October 7th-9th at the W Scottsdale.

A special pre-screening party will be held in the end of August for selected guests. If you would like to be a part of this fabulous red carpet event, please contact Shakirah Karim at shakirah@phoenixfashionweek.com to get on the list.

If you can’t make it to the pre-screening, make sure to buy your PHXFW tickets now!
