    The fashionistas return to Downtown Tempe for the 2013 M.A.D. Couture Challenge. The red bricks of Mill Avenue will once again become a runway for the creations of the talented designers as they are paired with local businesses to create outfits out of materials such as banners, brochures, gift cards, and candy. Watch out for models, paparazzi, and designers, as the models take Mill Avenue by storm, concluding the show at Hayden Square Amphitheater. A designer trunk show will follow with a live concert by Betsy Ganz and Sara Robinson and the Midnight Special. Prior to the fashion walk and concert, join the designers and models for a reception to celebrate the 3rd Annual MAD Couture Challenge at Here on the Corner. The reception will start at 4:30pm.
