FyoozD Culture Inc.

Hello and Thank you for stopping by my blog. My name is Natassja, and I'm currently a fashion design student at IADT in Sacramento. I decided to start a blog so that I can share with you my own personal journey through the world of the fashion industry. But then I was thinking WAIT! there is another part of me that helped shape who I am today, and that's been the desire to want to help, bring unity with all people, and encouragement. So in my quest to finding a spot in the fashion industry, I also want to bring peace and love to everyone that visits. May you find something that feeds your fashion craving, and also something that feeds your mental hunger.

FyoozD Friday: Techno Futuristic Funk

Lately I been listening to a lot of Techno/House music, which inspired me to do my Fyoozd Friday in the world of Futuristic Funk with House inspiring music. Music which is usually my number one go to for fashion inspiration. I tune into so house music on YouTube and just allowed my imagination to take over. First things that comes to mind when I think about House music or anything futuristic are:
  • Metallics in all colors
  • Lots of platinum silver
  • Geometric patterns and shapes
  • Clashing Textiles (the good kind)
  • Sequins
  • Bold Jewelery
  • Extremely Unique
If you don't want to look too space age you can always find beautiful classic pieces in unusual cutouts, a simple sheath dress in silver foil fabric, a trench coat perhaps in a very bold color. But please if you must keep it simple have fun with the accessories, thats the best part.

Cultural Diverse in Spring

Do you have a love for things that speak cultural, authentic, and unique? I am one for finding things that captures the essence of where that piece was created. Sometimes telling a story of it's own, being made by someone of that native country. It makes it a little more special then perhaps shopping at a fashionable mall.
Here are some of my great treasures, from the mother land Africa.

       Lime Batik Super Snap Clutch

The Super Snap clutch makes a great evening bag or could easily add a nice touch to a more casual look. With bright colors being the thing for the spring this clutch will be great. It is made in a batik fabric from Nigeria known as 'Adire' and It is also lined internally with a black cotton fabric.

Boxing Kitten 1st shoe collection
My love of off beat and quirkiness is why I personally love these shoes. And if you are just like me then these eco-friendly shoes will tickle your fancy as well.  

Yinka Cuff Bracelet by Bestow Elan
A beautifully crafted arm piece. This is not your normal arm cuff, this small authentic piece is just the right amount of cultural beauty to add to your wardrobe for this spring.

ASOS AFRICA Printed Blazer
Ok so blazers are always hot and are perfect for making a outfit look fitted and constructed. This African print blazer is great for the spring/summer weather because it is not overly heavy. Its very lightweight and can make a simple outfit look chic and unique.

My Spin on Fashion (Yellow Highlights)

This is my first entry of just showing my opinions of what I think is fashionable. I really love colors and have always found myself adding a bright color in small amounts to make my overall outfit pop. I also love to mix prints and textures to create a unique but still chic look. This outfit I would wear on a night out on the town with some of my girls. The fun ruffle skirt keeps it feminine, while the blazer gives it structure. Glide on some red lipstick and grab these ultra cute yellow pumps!! 
Its going to be a Fun Night Tonight!!

For this Spring bright is right!!!
We seen tons of designers using bright color tones in their spring/summer 2011 collections. Bright color tones are not just a wonderful breathe of fresh air for your closet, but it is excellent at lifting your spirits up. We all can use a little boost in this economy crisis, so don't be shy, throw a color on that really pops and enjoy the energy you get while strutting your stuff!!!

P.S. Throwing in some black into your wardrobe will help calm down the ultra bright colors or buy bright color accessories for a hint of pop.

I promised that I would make this blog personal as well as informative and fun. Before anything I am a fashion design student. Blogging allows me to share with you my thoughts, grow my knowledge, and make some real good friends along the way. Let me take you along my journey, and as time grows, so will our relationship as well.

Proud Student of IADT-SAC

Currently taking textiles & Evolution of Fashion

I eat, breath, dream of fashion!!!!

This book is truly helpful, and the study guide that's included really helps to put things in perspective. I suggest that everyone takes a look at it.

FyoozD Friday **Spotlight on Nigeria**

 Every Friday I will cover a culture's Fashion, Music, and Art. I like to think of it as a free trip to my readers that are interested in knowing what's going on outside of our usual surroundings. Besides it couldn't be called FyoozD Culture if I didn't pay my respects to the many wonderful cultures that help shape this beautiful world. I hope you enjoy my Fyoozd Friday's, and if you have a place that you want me to cover email me at fashionfyoozdculture@hotmail.com. I promise to make it my job to do it for you.

First Stop Nigeria

  • The capitol of Nigeria is Abuja
  • English is the language that is used the most but Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo, Fulani, and Kanuri are others that you might hear.
  • The most populous country in Africa, Nigeria accounts for over half of West Africa's population.
  • The variety of customs, languages, and traditions among Nigeria's 250 ethnic groups gives the country a rich diversity. 
  • Nigeria has three main environmental regions: savanna, tropical forests, and coastal wetlands.
  • Newborns in Nigerian societies are regarded with pride. They represent a community's and a family's future and often are the main reason for many marriages.
  • Nigeria is famous for its sculpture. The bronzework of the ancient cities of Ife and Benin can be found in museums all over the world. These areas in southern Nigeria still produce large amounts of bronze castings. Woodcarvings and terra-cotta sculptures also are popular.
  • Dance and music are the two most vibrant forms of Nigerian art. Nigerian music is dependent on strong rhythms supplied by countless drums and percussion instruments.

What's even more exciting is that AFI (African Fashion International) will be having their African Fashion Week in 2 weeks!!!! 

And that's all 
Thanks for staying
