Phoenix Fashion Designer Vara Ayanna: 100 Creatives

Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 58. Vara Ayanna.

Vara Ayanna's creative process is something of a royal affair.

The Phoenix fashion designer helms two labels: Thriftqueened and Get Kinged. The former specializes in up-cycled wearables, while the latter is a line tailored toward custom pieces and menswear.

And, yeah, she makes crowns.
