” HOW BEING A FASHION CUTATOR IS METRO-SEKTUAL ” * FXSHNJUNKE SPOTLIGHT* ft BRETT DREISSIG 

Today's Fxshnjunke Spotlight features a bomb fashion killer , originally from Minnesota but now living it up in LA . Brett aka "Sektual" talks with us about his eclectic style , being a fashion curator and more ! Read more below 

cough cough I kinda feel like I'm forever 25 – Brett 

Dasia : Talk to me about how your love for fashion became your passion? 

Brett : I have always been super into fashion. I started modeling and loved how an outfit could transform you into a different personal ! 

Dasia : I've been posting you for a long time and you've always showed so such support to Fxshnjunke, how do you describe your style ? 

Brett : My style is very eclectic with a rock edge. I have always been a collector of vintage t-shirts…I have recently launched a website selling vintage t-shirts SHOPsektual.com. I love mixing old with the new, and high and the low [end]. I will wear H&M pants with Saint Laurent shoes. I love the juxtaposition! And my leather jacket is basically my second skin!  

Dasia : Describe what a fashion curator is . 

Brett : A fashion curator is a fancy name for a stylist. Putting together looks. I live by the mentality that "just because it's designer, doesn't mean it's good." You can have all the money and clothes in the world, but if you don't know how to put a look together, you are gonna look like trash.

Dasia : LOL I love that ! How did you get into blogging ?

Brett : I have always been very interested in fashion, photography, and have always had a strong voice, so blogging was a way to kinda mash them all together and give me a creative outlet! …And I was spending too much time online shopping, so it's a bit of a cheaper hobby 😉

Dasia : Talk to me about your name, Sektual ? lol because I'm sure when people first see your name they automatically think its pronounced "Sexual", where did this name come from ?

Brett :LOL That is exactly what I want people to think! Back in the day, when I was young and dumb, I got the nickname "Sexual" from my friends…It just kinda stuck! An oversensitive Instagram account later… it was modestly modified to "@SEKTUAL. -And METROsektual.com stemmed from that –Metrosexual!

Dasia : I read that you actually started out modeling, what was it like when you first started ? 

Brett : I started modeling when I was 15. It gave me the opportunity to travel and see the world. I am a creative person so I loved the aspect of creating images.

Dasia : How many companies have you worked with so far  ?

Brett : Too many to count!

Dasia : How do you deal with the attention you get on social media ? 

Brett : You know, there are some real angry people out there. But I get so many beautiful letters, and comments, and messages, that it makes it easy to brush off the bitter trolls!

Dasia : If anyone visits your blog metrosektual.com, what can they expect to see ? 

Brett : Naturally, I am a bit controversial, as you can expect from my IG name… but I want people to relate and get a couple laughs while they are there.. and since it's a fashion blog hopefully get some style inspiration too 😉

Dasia : Where are some of your favorites places to shop ? 

Brett : I have a weak spot (in my wallet) for Saint Laurent & Barney's NY. But I get some great vintage t-shirts at my go to store here in LA, Wasteland!

Dasia :What some dope places to check out in Los Angeles ?

Brett : Abbot Kinney, Chateau Marmont, Runyon Canyon, Gjelina, and I've never met a 7-Eleven I didn't like LOL

Dasia : What is the fashion community like in LA ?

Brett : Pretty lazy, everyone wears workout clothes everywhere and it drives me crazy. I know 90 percent of these people did not step foot in a gym and def didn't work up a sweat all day… They aren't fooling me in those Lululemon pants!

Dasia : In your own words, what does it take to be a male fashion blogger ? 

Brett : A lot of dedication! It's so much work! You have to shop to find the clothes, then put together looks, then find a place to shoot, then edit the pictures, then write for the blog, then push it on all social platforms. It's a full-time job.  and I already work a full-time job…so I spend my free time sleeping! Oh and you need to have style. So many male bloggers have zero style game, but are popular because they have muscles….Wearing a Hanes tshirt that's 2 sizes too small to show off your guns doesn't constitute as a "fashion".

Dasia : LOL I'm loving this interview already ! What do you think about Fxshnjunke ? 

Brett : I love Fxshnjunke! You constantly inspire me with outfit ideas and I love how you cover a wide array of fashion trends! -And I love when I'm featured on it 😉

Dasia : Yesss 😏 . Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years ? 

Brett : I would love to be working with a magazine as a fashion editor or correspondent. Hopefully METROsektual.com and SHOPsektual.com are both still thriving… and hopefully I'm really happy!

“I WEAR WHATEVER FEELS RIGHT ” *FXSHNJUNKE SPOTLIGHT* ft GRACE MALEKA 

Today’s Fxshnjunke Spotlight features Grace Maleka a 22 year old fashion blogger from Berlin. Grace talks to us about becoming a blogger , her style and more ! Read our one on one below . 


Dasia : How did you get into fashion ? 

Grace : My brother is a well-known fashion blogger (@newkissontheblog) and was the reason for me to start my own blog. I always admired him and how he changed the fashion industry, and soon wanted to achieve similar goals. He saw my love for fashion and encouraged me to grow ands nourish it, just like he did. Eventually I decided to create a professional Instagram account started my blog. 

Dasia : What motivated you to become a fashion blogger?

Grace : Fashion is a way to express myself, and I just love the fact that I can influence people with what I do. Having a voice and creating content/outfits was just always something that fascinated and motivated me. Plus, the fact that you can actually live off of blogging makes it so much easier to hustle and work hard. 

Dasia : How long have you been blogging ?

Grace : I started blogging April 2016.

Dasia : How do you feel about having a social presence and people being inspired by your outfits ?

Grace :I absolutely love it. It is such a blessing to have a voice and to have people react positively to what you do. It’s crazy to me that I actually inspire people, and I am thankful for every single person that supports what I do, because at the end of the day it would not be possible without them. 


Dasia : It’s crazy how many countries view and follow Fxshnjunke, and Germany is one of them which is also where you are from, what is it like living in Berlin ?

Grace : I am in love with Berlin. This city is the place I was born and raised, and a place that will always have a special place in my heart! Berlin gives me great vibes. No matter what you look like or where you are from, you’ll always feel welcome here in Berlin because of its diversity and cultural understanding. People come together and have a great time, thats what Berlin is all about. 

Dasia : How active is the fashion community in Berlin ?

Grace : Berlin is known for its fashion community. We have tons of bloggers and fashion lovers, and also host the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week twice a year. You can literally wear whatever you want, people do not stare or make you feel uncomfortable because the sense for fashion is just different and very accepting. 

Dasia : I would love to travel to Germany one day, What are some places you recommend for shopping, eating, and visiting ?

Grace : Germany has beautiful cities, as well as breathtaking natural landscapes. Berlin, Munich and Hamburg are my favorite cities because they are so different. Munich is what you would consider as more ‘traditionally’ German, and is known for its typically German cuisine and the ‘Oktoberfest’. Hamburg is a seaport and known for its beautiful architecture and seafood. Last but not least, Berlin is more urban known for its unique flair, diversity, and history. You can literally find any restaurant from any country, and we have great museums and historical buildings and sights. When it comes to shopping, you could go anywhere. We have great shops and especially great thrift shops which are one of my favorite places to shop. 

Dasia : I loooove your outfits ! How would you describe your style ?

Grace : Thanks girl! Good question, I never really thought about describing it. I usually just wear whatever feels right and what represents my mood. One day I would dress urban and wear a huge denim jacket with some pilot sunnies, and another day I would dress classy and wear some heels and a body con dress. I love mixing styles! However, I always try to keep it clean. I am not a fan of too much jewelry or accessories. 

Dasia : Where are some of your favorite places to shop ?

Grace : I am a total online shopper. I love shops like Fashion Nova, Missguided, but also smaller online shops like Glambyjp. If I ever feel like physically shopping, thrifts shops are the way to go for me because you can always find unique pieces!


Dasia : In your words how would you describe what a girl boss is ?

Grace : A girl boss is a confident, hard working woman that hustles is silence, stays humble and always has the urge to become better physically, mentally and spiritually. 

Dasia : What/who are you inspired by ?

Grace : My mother inspires me every single day. She is the definition of a true queen, works hard every day and always puts others first. Growing up she did not have much, but she created her own empire, always having a positive attitude and never giving up. Its inspiring!

Dasia : Have you worked any fashion brands ? If so, who were they ?

Grace : I was blessed enough to work with some of my favorite brands, including Missyempire, Glambyjp, and Amiclubwear. I love working with fashion brands, but I also create content for other brands. Recently I worked with London Virgin Hair, TruSelfOrganics and Avène. 

Dasia : You also have a Youtube Channel showcasing your outfit looks, what inspired to start a channel ?

Grace : Becoming a Youtuber was always a childhood dream. Although pictures are great to showcase fashion, it is even easier to express yourself through videos because you can add Music and cut it a certain way to create a certain vibe. 

Dasia : If you could collab with any other blogger who would it be ?

Grace : I would love to collaborate with my brother (Newkissontheblog)! We never had a project together and I just love his work ethic and style. Although our styles are quite different, I’m sure we will make something work in the future. 



Dasia : Where do you see yourself in the future ?

Grace:Traveling the world, creating content and doing what I love is where I see myself. I am working hard to become an established youtuber and really want to live off of blogging. 

Dasia : Have you heard of Fxshnjunke before ?

Grace : YES!! I’ve been following you guys since I started my Instagram. Love the concept!! 

Dasia : What are some of your goals for the rest of 2017 ?

Grace : My goals for the rest of the year are to create some dope Youtube videos and to establish a name on Youtube! On top of that, I just want to work with great companies and to keep on hustling. I’ll soon be moving into a new apartment here in Berlin, so thats also on my list. 

AN INSIDE LOOK AT VINICHI MINYON FT KIMA * FXSHNJUNKE SPOTLIGHT* 

Today’s Fxshnjunke Spotlight features a bomb designer born and raised from Washington, DC , Kima who is the founder and designer of unisex clothing brand Vinichi Minyon . Kima talks with us about her beginnings being a mother after graduating high school and how that motivated her to chase her dreams.

Dasia: Tell me something about yourself ?

Kima :  Fashion is Kima, since a teenager I’ve had a love for it and I knew once I became an adult I would pursue my passion. Near my senior year I became pregnant , and on graduation day with great admiration I walked the stage with my daughter on my hip. Having my daughter early pushed me further to chase the dream I’ve had set for myself as a teen.


Dasia : What is Vinichi Minyon about ?

Kima: Vinichi Minyon (VM) isn’t just a brand , it is indeed a lifestyle; it is to be implemented in everyday life. VM launched in 2014 as an online boutique store catered to women. As time progressed it was time for me to scale up and take a more visual direction.At the end of 2015 I went into 2016 with a relaunch or my brand, and since then the brand has blossomed into something greater. We now cater to both adult men and women. Vinichi is an individual who is after success, works to their maximum potential, and have dreams of turning their passion into a lifestyle.

Dasia : What does entrepreneurship mean to you ?

Kima : An entrepreneur is a innovator, a risk taker! A person who creates what they love, and turns it into a business for consumers to enjoy.

Dasia : Describe any obstacles you’ve faced and how you overcame them.

Kima : I have experienced mistakes in production, and delayed deadlines. Just like any passionate business owner, I was upset. What I envisioned wasn’t executed. However I had to look at my company as a whole, and understand that the show must continue. So instead of removing the collection, I did more engaging things, to make my customers feel exclusive, when that item dropped.

Dasia : What do you like most about fashion ?

Kima: That fashion has no limit, it allows for one to be expressive.

Dasia : Favorite places to shop ?

Kima: Nordstrom, Macy’s, Chanel, and Gucci


Dasia : Favorite current trends ?

Kima: Boyfriend jeans , fitted shirt, with open toe heel (sexy comfort)

Dasia : What is some advice for anyone who wants to start their own clothing line ?

Kima : Create a line that’s true to you, and what you’d like to see more in the “Fashion Industry”. Find your niche in fashion, be inspired, re-create, but never duplicate.


Dasia : What are some of your goals for 2017?

Kima: Securing a brand ambassador, growing the brand outside of my hometown, launching new line “VM Savvy”, and enhancing and growing the V-League.

Dasia : Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years ?

Kima: Having a storefront , employing staff in a fashion forward workplace environment.

Dasia: How did you hear about Fxshnjunke ?

“COLLEGE HELPED ME FIND MYSELF” * FXSHNJUNKE SPOTLIGHT* ft SHAN’TASIA ALEXIS

Today’s Fxshnjunke Spotlight features Shan’Tasia Alexis who is a blogger and youtuber from North Carolina , her love for creating unique outfits unleashed as she made a transition from high school to her current undergraduate college journey. Now she is putting those skills into her blog and showcasing her personal style !  Read more about her story below ! 


FJ: Tell us something about yourself :

Shan’Tasia: I’m Shan’Tasia Alexis! I knew around my last year in middle school that I had a strong love for fashion and the creativity of it. Even though I had to wear uniforms in high school, whenever we had dress down days, I would try to stand out in what I wore (rather it be my clothes or my accessories). I would always put together looks in my head and even though I can’t draw, I would try to re-create the looks I thought of. I also used to cut out photos in a magazine and make a scrap book of the looks that I took from them. It wasn’t until college that my love for creating and fashion really reached its climax. 

After graduating and going off to college that is when I was able to completely unleash my creativity with styling. I would piece together items that probably got me some strange looks and got me called tacky but I didn’t care because it was what I liked. As my undergraduate career continued and being exposed to different cultures and styles, I really was able to define my aesthetic. College really helped me find myself and motivated me to do and wear what pleases me. Since I grew up in a small town, I love that I was finally able to express myself through my clothing and be comfortable in what I decided to wear. No matter how many questionable looks I got.

FJ: Tell us about the business/brand that you have. 

Shan’Tasia: I attempted this blogging journey before but to me, I went about it all wrong so I decided to start with a clean slate. I created my blog to document my personal style, fashion inspirations, knowledge and my experiences in hope that it encourages someone, no matter what stage they are at in life. I started my YouTube channel because it’s something I wanted to do since 2012. I’m mad at myself for waiting so long to start it but there’s no wrong time to go after what you want. My YouTube will mimic my blog in a way but also include discussion videos, transitioning hair care recommendations and anything that interests me. The bulk of the content will be fashion and art related. I hope to really grow with my blog and YouTube and to be to look back on it years from now and see how much I’ve accomplished. 


FJ: What do you like about fashion ?:

Shan’Tasia: I love that you can express yourself through your clothing. You really don’t have to follow any trends or rules when it comes to your personal style. You can be as creative and extra with it as you want. I just love that you can make it your own. 

FJ: Favorite places to shop ?:

Shan’Tasia: Thrift shops, Poshmark, Amazon, EBay, Some IG boutiques (lol), Fashion Nova and sometimes Forever 21 

FJ: Favorite current trends ?:

Shan’Tasia: Anything camo and anything denim, distressed or bleach. Those trends will never get old to me. 

FJ: How did you hear about Fxshnjunke ?

Shan’Tasia: I’ve been following you all on Instagram for the last few years. I love that I am able to go to your blog and social media to get inspiration and follow creative individuals.

FJ: What are some of your goals for 2017?:

Shan’Tasia: My goals for 2017 is to grow my blog and YouTube channel, continue to deliver creative content and get back into sewing.

FJ: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years ?:

Shan’Tasia: I really have so many ideas and things I want to do in life but in the next 5 years, I hope to be working for myself in some way pertaining to blogging or fashion. I could possibly see myself in the counseling field also.
