Fashion designer Tiffe Fermaint always brings a certain edgy glamour to her work, whether it's a sartorially savvy lush white coat or a pop-star-ready, space-age leotard. Her latest collection, dubbed Reincarnation, is no exception.

Fermaint estimates that the line of remixed and reimagined pieces could have about 200 one-of-a-kind pieces once she finishes (when we corresponded she had completed about 100). She will release the expansive collection on Sunday, September 2, at Buffalo Exchange in Tempe.

To create the line, Fermaint shopped mainly at Goodwill on 50-percent-off days for pieces with familiar labels like Levi's and Calvin Klein. "I found an amazing circa '92 Bob Mackie kimono top," she says. "Items like those have a special place in the collection after transformation."
