2011 Tucson Fashion Week
Tucson Fashion Week has turned two, in a matter of about seven months. Yes, the inaugural TFW was just last September, and now it's back: The second annual starts April 27 and culminates in a main runway event April 30.
And while the folks at the Tucson Fashion Week Collective, who put on the event, may have had tighter deadlines this time around, Tucson is obviously ready for more. The designers showing are mostly newbies—only two are returns from the first fashion week.
