Phoenix Fashion Week is an official partner of the Scottsdale Polo Championships: Horses + Horsepower, the third annual polo event with a great new title sponsor, Scottsdale Ferrari Maserati, taking place Friday, November 1st – Saturday, November 2nd at Penfolds Polo Field at WestWorld of Scottsdale.

Last October, the Scottsdale Polo Championships drew the biggest crowd in the country for a one-day polo event with approximately 9,180 fans enjoying the three-match showdown at the annual Polo Party. This year, with an expanded event schedule and an amped-up polo lineup including the sport’s top players and more vendors, more sponsors, and the 2013 Arizona Porsche Concours d’Elegance car show, America’s most-attended polo event is expected to draw up to 15,000 polo fans and revelers. With the breathtaking backdrop of McDowell Mountains and beautiful white tents lining the field, the Polo Party will again be a weekend destination for both local residents and tourists. For attendees having Phoenix Fashion Week withdrawals, The Polo Party and Phoenix Fashion Week have teamed up again this year to create The Volvo of Phoenix Lounge: Presented by Phoenix Fashion Week, an exclusive fashion-themed covered tent seating area with models, food and beverages located at mid-field.

There will be an all-star match at 4:00 p.m. and then a 5:30 p.m. introduction of the players. It will culminate with a 6:00 p.m. Sunset Equestrian Fashion Show presented and styled by Phoenix Fashion Week, featuring 25 runway looks provided by Dillards, My Sister’s Closet and PHXFW Emerging Designer Doux Belle. Hair and makeup by ROLFS, models provided by PHXFW and JANI Models.

On Saturday, November 2nd, gates open at 10:00 a.m. for the Scottsdale Ferrari Maserati Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower, where attendees can enjoy polo matches, as well as take in equestrian fashions displayed on pedestal models inside The Volvo of Phoenix Lounge: Presented by Phoenix Fashion Week.

“I personally feel that the annual Scottsdale Polo Championships is soon to be most coveted polo themed event in the nation, and Phoenix Fashion Week is honored to be the fashion partner on board,” said Phoenix Fashion Week Executive Director Brian Hill.
