Video: CUT UP Collective. Afro Style in Urban Fashion in Brussels

CUT UP Collective is an awesome project from three Brussels-based creative minds: make-up artist Nadjma Ramahatali and fashion designers Sylvie Iweanya and Noémie Nuo.

Noémie owns the Wake Up! fashion shop in Brussels and the Nuo brand. Together they work on several projects. They are responsible for the ‘Trust the Colors’ parties in Brussels and take care of make-up and styling for different creative talents in Belgium.

Their style is defined by colorful patterns and ‘Afro styles’, which is recently a striking trend, not only in Brussels but all over urban Europe.

Cut Up was recently featured in the Belgian issue of Elle magazine. Magali Elali interviewed them for the Belgian style-website In order to discover these interesting artist world wide, I feature a translation from their latest interview with Magali Elali. Read the full story on Afro-Europe.

The video was made by KICKIN' IT WITH THE KINKS, a UK based media organisation with a mission. Check out their site for more interesting videos at:

Trailer for "The Curl"

Coming to December 5th!

Check out the trailer for "The Curl", the first episode of which will premiere on Wednesday, December 5. Designed as a series for Carol's Daughter's new site, Transitioning Movement, "The Curl" would be the first show of its kind, a show that, when put together, defines, entertains and exposes viewers to natural hair terminology and hairstyles in a comprehensive way, while getting a sneak peek into the lives of women who share their own candid, incredibly diverse hair stories.

This series is for every woman-sister-mother-friend who has ever wondered, “What exactly am I going to do with my hair?” and “How can I achieve my own, unique look?


  1. It is really great, there are several projects here in Brazil, trying to create black identity and resistance through clothes. It is also an initiative to help the creation of the black concept here, and has been a success among our people. One of my favorites is the Xongani ( it is a family who buy some fabrics in Mozambique and creates amazing clothes, shoes and turbants with them. I highly recommend.
