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.

Icon FlashBack: Dorothy Dandridge

I remember growing up and being totally taken back by the beautiful Ms. Dorothy Dandridge. My grandparents are the ones that introduced me to her when I was in first grade. I remember seeing her face in the Essence magazine, and I remember keeping that page to hold onto so I could always look back and vision her still being alive.

WOW!! She was Gorgeous

Dorothy Dandridge was taken way before her time, her and Marlyn Monroe are two of my favorite women from the past. Its crazy because both of their life's kinda pattern themselves. Two amazingly beautiful women with so much inner tumor, and both left us way to early.

She is most famous for her role in Carmen Jones, in which she became the first African American women to ever be nominated for an Academy Award for best actress. Unfortunately she didn't win due to heavy racial issues back in those times (the movie was made in 1954). But to many people she had won, and because of her memorable role as Carmen Jones she will never be forgotten.
