Midtown fashion designer goes to New York Fashion Week

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — KGUN9 first introduced you to Ian Urquhart, the owner of Ignis Clothing, back in February 2023 for Black History Month. Today, we share our follow up interview with the midtown designer who was making clothes for the runway out of his garage.

From the Old Pueblo to the Big Apple, Urquhart took his Tucson clothing brand to the runway at New York Fashion Week earlier this month. His traveling crew of about 15 people– models, hair stylists, makeup artists and photographers were all from Tucson.

Urquhart was able to walk out on the runway with his models after the show to soak in what he had just accomplished.

“I was just planning on walking out and just saying thank you. Then something happened where I just felt the music and I started dancing down the runway. Oh my gosh, it was honestly a really fun moment

In honor of New York Fashion Week, here are 7 golf brands we’d put on the runway | Golf Equipment: Clubs, Balls, Bags

In recent years, the golf fashion world has undergone a bit of a renaissance. On-course styles have been implemented off the course. Polos and khakis have been elevated to spunky button-downs and utility trousers. And brands are increasingly becoming more daring with color and pattern selections. The lines between high fashion, sportswear, and street style have become blurred and it’s reflected in what we see prominent brands producing. While there may not be a runway show or week dedicated to celebrating the progress in the golf fashion world and show golfers what’s new, high-fashion golf brands like J.Lindeberg and Malbon have been increasing their visibility on the professional tours to show golfers watching at home aspirational looks and trends each season.
