#DCFASHIONWEEK 2019 - Syreeta C. Fashion

Our first #DCfashionweek post features the talented and lovely Syreeta C of @syreetacfashion - who we also got to meet last night in person at the @prgirlisoke Creative Workshop! After chatting with Syreeta, we were enamored with her vibe and her passion for fashion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Syreeta's calling started early, when she started repurposing her outfits as a kid to create new styles for herself. Although her dream was to become a doctor, after attending a summer college program for high schoolers, she knew that she was destined for the fashion world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Combining her appreciation of engineering with a keen eye for construction & tailoring, Syreeta says that self-expression drives her custom design production. She sees the wearer as the messenger, and fashion as the medium - making each outfit a chance to tell a story about who's wearing it. She believes that fashion can break barriers of language and communicate more accurately than the most colorful of words. Drawing on this, Syreeta uses her skills to translate the stories of her custom clientele to the world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Syreeta's portfolio reflects her own personal journey through life and the world around her. Balancing contrast with cohesion, she brings details together to create a whole story. Each piece she creates is an edgy + sophisticated part of her unique brand, and we can't wait to see more of Syreeta's work gracing the world and the streets of DC!

The photo featured here comes from Syreeta's "Passage" collection, which explores the art era of Cubism. Drawing on the nontraditional history of the art form, the collection features design elements like fragmentation, geometry, and ambiguity. In her words, Syreeta "toes the line of avant-garde and wearability, striking a balance that elicits interest and opens the door for interpretation."
