Up to 60 Arizona fashion designers/brands, 60 models, and the best AZ hair stylists and makeup artists come together annually in one show to highlight the emerging, diverse, fashion community in AZ.

Join us as we attempt to orchestrate a virtual fashion show like NONE OTHER for 2020!

What an insane year it’s been!

Especially in the fashion industry! We are having to re-think everything, right!?!

One of the biggest hits our industry took is in Fashion Show Production. With entire Fashion Weeks cancelled and in-person events taking a pause we are left to find a creative way to navigate this new space for fashion marketing.

That is why we have decided that for this year’s annual LabelHorde Fashion Show will be going DIGITAL! That’s right, we are taking the show online and also… Around Tempe???? Yep! That’s what we said!


We’re developing a choreographed sequence that will follow our designer(s) model(s) in a story telling sequence that intertwines with one another through our local streets and show designers garments portrayed in more real-life scenarios to create an immersive show for the audience to see how they too can live their lives in

local designer brands. 


. Whether you're a active wear company that wants to show their model jogging, a plus-size socialite wearing a red carpet gown, or menswear being dashing in downtown, we want to tell a story while also immersing our audience into viewing all the wonderful brands and designers that make up our great local industry. 


We will divide the video up between different points of Downtown Tempe.

The specific places and transitions are currently being determined as we see what designers/product are participating and evaluate the best placement for everyone. Depending on the type of garment you are showcasing we will weave it into the story that best portrays the brand and helps grow the overall story in the video. We want to make this a fun way to be individual to each design aesthetic while still doing this show together in an organized way. 



-Once you've signed up and have been assigned a filming date/time, it will be YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to get to the filming destination with your camera-ready model in your garment. 

-Designer and Model must arrive hair makeup ready and either dressed or able to change easily onsite in public. 


We will be shooting 4 different days:

Saturday, October 17th, 2020

Sunday, October 18th, 2020

Saturday, November 14th, 2020

Sunday, November 15th, 2020

Mark these dates off from 7am to 9pm in your calendar now so that you are available to shoot. Once you've been assigned a date/time, you can remove the other dates from your calendar.

Here is an example of the timeline and transition flow we are forming to build our story board from.

Please note this is subject to change and only provides a snapshot into ideas how the models will transition/hand-off to the next model. 


The PREMIER will be a hosted online event taking place in F/W 20/21 when our typical show would take place. 

We hope you join us in this new fashion show experience!

Let's pave the way for the new era of fashion shows and tell our story TOGETHER.

You don't need to make anything new! In fact, this show is meant to feature something from your current collection to represent what your brand does best. So, grab a garment out of your current collection and submit a photo to us in your application. That way we can best coordinate placement of your garment when finalizing story board.

OCTOBER 3rd, 2020

If you are an ACCESSORY DESIGNER, it is required that your model wears a simple black outfit so that the jewelry/accessories are the focus. It is between you and your model on who will supply this outfit. Please stick to simple black pants or leggings and black tank or T-shirt or a simple black body conscious dress so it is obvious that the focus should be on the accessories and not the outfit.



In 2003, the first LabelHorde Fashion Show (originally called the LabelHorde Fashion Ball) was a celebration and showcase of the AZ fashion community and a way to unite all local industry professionals. Each year the event continues to feature 60 of AZ’s designers/brands each showcasing one signature look on their own model. 60 designers, 60 models, and 30+ of the best hair/makeup artists in the valley collaborate to celebrate and showcase AZ’s industry which includes every category of fashion from T-shirts to wedding dresses at every stage of growth from emerging to established brands. At the turn of the century, this show and the LabelHorde directory were the sparks that ignited the AZ fashion industry before it became SEW HAUTE!
