State Forty Eight designs will be featured on the runway during Tucson Fashion Week at the Feast & Fashion event on October 17th. State Forty Eight, founded in March of 2013 by Mike Spangenberg, Nick Polando, and Stephen Polando, was created to fill a missing void in the 48th State. That void was fashionable clothing to represent pride for Arizona. The sixth largest city in the United States deserves a brand they can relate to home. The brand message is “Clothing for all and inspired by Arizona” and the company’s tag line is “Arizona Passion meets Arizona Fashion.”
