PHXFW Emerging Model: Adel Belgaied

His second year with PHXFW, Emerging Model, Adel Belgaied makes appearances as often (if not more!) than some of our staff—and we love him for it.

Belgaied was accepted at PHXFW’s Emerging Model Casting Call last year, ’09.



“I saw where Phoenix Fashion Week was headed and the success it brought in the previous years,” Belgaied said in September. “And after experiencing last year, it’d be ridiculous to not want to be a part of this event.”

After modeling Friday and yesterday at W Scottsdale on both the Established and Emerging Designer Runways, he’s officially put his year of experience and practice to the test.

“It wasn’t just any random show for one designer,” Belgaied said after the shows on Thursday, opening night. “The atmosphere was different than anything else because of the work that went behind it.” Adding later, “It was a different fashion show this year.”

After the close of PHXFW tonight, he plans to sign with an agency and book work primarily outside of Arizona. Eventually, he’d like to model in fashion hubs such as Milan and New York.

When he’s not modeling, Belgaied attends Arizona State University where he majors in Business Sustainability at the W.P. Carey School of Business. He’s currently using his entrepreneurial skills to create a business website of his own and patent a couple of his working ideas.
