PHOENIX  -- Phoenix Fashion Week isn't actually happening until October. But for those who want to get a jump on the latest fashion trends, a special preview is being offered this Friday.

On Tuesday's Good Morning Arizona, Fashion Week's Executive Director Brian Hill told us what we can expect at the free "Shop the Garment District" fashion show on Friday, August 9.

"12 designers from New York to Los Angeles are coming in town to show you guys what they've already made for Spring of 2013," Hill says.

Guests can watch the runway show, shop, and enjoy snacks from Lucha Libre food truck. Meantime, up-and-coming designers can show off their latest looks.

"You come to Phoenix Fashion Week, and you can actually launch your brand and sell clothing and be consistent," Hill says. "Then you can hire from within the city to build that brand."

Here is the information.
