As a Phoenix native, I thought it was time to highlight my city as a fashion-forward place to live. Phoenix is a very diverse city, and the metro area ranks 6th largest in the country, but the population spreads over a wide geographic area, giving the feeling of a much smaller community. Because of this, downtown Phoenix is a bit looked over as far as big-city fashion. In this article, I address Phoenix streetwear and bring attention to the artistic movement going on within my city. The summer heat can’t keep these locals from dressing stylish!
This is just a glimpse of what Phoenix streetwear is like and the expressive inhabitants that color our downtown streets with art. Every first Friday of the month on Roosevelt Street where these pictures were taken, there is a festival with artisans and vendors where you get to browse through studios, art spaces, and come together in a creative environment. Phoenix is making big waves in terms of fashion and artistic innovation.
