Tara Sillery is delighted and honored to announce her role in Phoenix Fashion Week 2015 which is to be held on October 1st to the 3rd in Phoenix, Arizona. Tara will be hosting online live designer bootcamp sessions between the months of July to September in the quest to find the next US Emerging Designer of the Year.

Bridging The Fashion Gap
She is also hosting a seminar during Fashion Week Titled “How to establish and grow your Brand Internationally – Bridging the East and West”. One of the main focal points of the bootcamp and seminar for Tara, is to educate the audience in America on the Middle Eastern culture, talented designers and fashion industry. Many Middle Eastern groups will be involved in sponsoring, which is a very positive move in bridging the gap between the regions.
“I am truly honored and excited to be part of such a growing and powerful event in the US. I am also going to be involving some regional designers for their input on helping me choose the winner. The talent I have seen so far is amazing and the next few months of bi-weekly bootcamps will be intensive as well as difficult for all parties! I am passionate about educating the world on the wonderful region in which I live so will most definitely use my voice to ensure the Middle Eastern culture, markets and highly successful group of nationals are portrayed in a very positive light. I am also excited to have some Middle Eastern designers participating in the catwalk shows which will add a touch of Eastern Culture to Phoenix Fashion Week!”
