Introducing Zya Felix...

I was first introduced to the fabulousness that is the Zya Felix bags one wintry night. I took myself to a fundraising gala and ran into Ms. Zya there. One of the first things that I noticed about her was her oh so fabulous bag, and I was quick to let her know...'Girl, that bag is HOT'. When she told me that she made it, I was like 'whoa! Can I get one like right now?' I then proceeded to show any and everyone who was interested the bag, and the general consensus was 'Girl, that bag is HOT'.
I don't hype up products that I'm not interested in. If this steez wasn't my cup of tea, I wouldn't even be typing up this post. If I'm posting it on the my blog, then best believe that them bags are that HOTNESS... And with that said, allow me to introduce Zya Felix...

About Zya Felix
Zya Felix is a new ground breaking label created and owned by Ezenwanyi Abii, a Washington DC based attorney. Created in 2008, Zya Felix was born out of a desire to incorporate traditional African fabric into contemporary Fashion. This summer, the brand will release its first collection of clutches. There are samples available.
"Individuality personified”- Zya Felix prides itself with the creation of items that cannot be replicated. As a new born brand, Zya Felix aims to show that one can incorporate classic African print fabrics into any outfit for all occasions. The inspiration from this line comes from the creator's personal background, love of art and special knack for creativity. The items from this brand aim to make a statement and stand out in a world full of conformity.
Eclectic- Sophisticate”- Zya Felix incorporates fabrics, textures, colors and accents to create one of a kind sophisticated pieces which are eclectic and unique.
The brand hopes to venture into clothing and home accents as it grows, with a creative desire to knit in different items (i.e. leather, laces, suede etc) with traditional African prints fabrics and create extraordinary items. This is just the beginning. Dare to be Extraordinary!
