Multi-Colored-Animal repurposes t-shirts to create custom headbands for unique people.

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA – Phoenix Fashion Week, known for discovering and launching top emerging fashion talent, selected headband designer Multi-Colored-Animal (MCA) as “Emerging Designer of the Year” in the Accessories category during its annual three-day runway show earlier this month at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. Having learned vital lessons about the business of fashion and how to build a better brand during Phoenix Fashion Week’s intensely challenging Emerging Designer Bootcamp, MCA is poised to become a star player in the headband game.

With innovative yet simple design elements, MCA creates one-of-a-kind headbands repurposed from t-shirts for people seeking to stand out from the crowd. MCA also produces custom headbands featuring logos/graphics for clients seeking maximized promotional power. “Phoenix Fashion Week’s team of experts did an incredible job teaching us how to reach the next level, including preparation of an Operating Budget, Marketing Plan, and resources for scaling,” said founder/designer Colin Jared. MCA headbands are currently available at City Royals Menswear Shop in Scottsdale, and, amongst other retail outlets, will soon be available at Cowtown Skateboards (in Tempe) and Radi8 Hot Yoga (in Phoenix). Custom headbands offer huge promotional impact – a perfect fit for anyone with a brand, business, organization or event to promote! Simply contact MCA with your logo/graphic files for preparation of digital headband proofs, select colors, size (1.5″ or 2″), and quantity, and you’re off and running.
