54: Tiffe Fermaint

When we last put the spotlight on 100 creative forces in Phoenix, it was no secret there were more than 100 individuals who were making waves in the local arts community. So as we count down to our annual Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome (back) to 100 Creatives

Tiffe Fermaint's been making clothes since she was a teenager. The independent fashion designer and stylist is now based in Phoenix and Los Angeles, where she went to school at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

After school, she came back to Phoenix, where her collections are currently sold in local boutiques and featured in runway shows. She says much of her inspiration comes from music (she's in an electronic duo Being Cool is Lonely with her boyfriend Keith Walker), and that music has played a part in new collections coming soon to Buffalo Exchange and Alternative Fashion Society's Medusa's Revenge Fashion Show.
