Fée Uhssi's 'Wrap Me Up' Collection

Fée Uhssi presents their 'Wrap Me Up' Collection, a mix between African textiles and European vintage fabrics.

French/Nigerian label Fée Uhssi's latest Wrap Me Up collection highlights their high-quality fabrics sourced in Africa and in Europe. The brand's concept is simple: a single piece can be worn in many ways. This makes Fée Uhssi's garments completely versatile and unique. The label's website explains, "the pieces in this collection are designed with clever reversible, convertible, multi-way systems creating many different style options. They are created to complement the basics we all have in our wardrobe; with various vibrant pieces that are easy to mix and match, bringing the 'wow' effect to a simple pair of jeans, black leggings, white shirt, little black dress or any style that fits your look." The beautiful prints that the garments are constructed from will definitely inspire wearers to be their own designer.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
