Phoenix-based marijuana entrepreneur Marvina Thomas’ love for Egypt, women’s empowerment and cannabis inspired her to collaborate with designer Korto Momolu to create Queen of the Nile, a line of women’s clothing under her Fourtwenty Collections label. “My whole brand is all built around Egypt, because women are all goddesses and because the cannabis plant is female,” she says. According to Thomas, when Queen of the Nile made its runway debut at Tempe fashion incubator FABRIC in the fall of 2021, it was the first cannabis-inspired runway show in Arizona. She was thrilled to share QotN’s flowy pieces with even more prospective customers at Phoenix Fashion Week in 2022. “I love sharing the powerful feeling I feel when I’m dressed like a goddess with others,” she says.
