‘Nyssa Presents’ Fashion Collaboration

Fashion designer Nyssa Wheeler graduated with a BA (hons) in Design in 2008, and is amongst Nottingham’s finest along with her recent collaborators Steffany Rucci (make-up artist), Roks-Ann Roschana (model), and photographer Jenny Sneap on her latest project Nyssa Presents.

A couple of the girls met by chance and some through crossing paths in their field. They realised the benefits of pulling together this year for an exciting new project; “Nyssa is such a hard worker, we met last year-” explains Jenny, “It worked out amazingly and just proves how important it is to network. Since pulling together, me and Steffany have managed to work with a lot of new faces.”

Nyssa Presents injects a sense of Underground in their fashion, reflecting genres that are still redefining and evolving their identity; Hip-hop, Retro, and 90s Grunge. And without losing a sense of these classic’s, N.P also boasts an alternative range of Dresses and Accessorising (shown off most in their Vintage Dolls Winter Collection).

Although the past years’ 90s revival is nothing new to our high-streets, N.P shows us how it’s done with fresh, versatile designs. Their handmade tie-dyes, printed shirts, crop-tops and fantastic high- waist bleach Jeans have the perfect blend of femininity and ‘Anti-fashion’ from that decade (most of which wouldn’t look out of place on M.I.A’s bedroom floor). And London’s Witch-house scene will inevitably be raving in one of their Tees or sweatshirts from their new ‘ICON’ range.

Roschana’s beautifully androgynous and understated look completes the fearless, colourful designs; here finally captured through the eyes of Jenny Sneap, whose Live and Portraiture work has developed gracefully into more Fashion shoots with up-and-coming brands.
