On November 30th we unveiled our 2023 Mystics schedule through a campaign centered around the influence of fashion in WNBA culture. The schedule release video included a custom outfit worn by our very own Natasha Cloud.
This one-of-a-kind outfit was designed by DMV-raised fashion designer Syreeta C, who specializes in custom garments. She crafted and created this custom outfit all by hand, making sure each piece was aligned with the Mystics brand, inspired by DC Culture and fit Tash’s very unique, personal style.
With bucket hats being a staple of DC Fashion, Syreeta created two for the outfit, elevating the feature through high-quality material to give it a high luxury feel. The red and blue colors were used to match the Mystics colors.
The puffer jacket is another mainstay of DC fashion both adding to an ensemble and helping us keep warm. Syreeta pulled in this DC fashion staple to inspire her reversible puffer jacket.
The utility denim jeans are filled with immense details that tell the story of our schedule release. The jeans are filled with patches that each reveal a piece of our schedule, all embroidered by Syreeta. On one leg, it’s filled with patches that symbolize our Commissioner’s Cup opponents. On the other leg the patches represent all the Western Conference teams we’ll play. The jeans brilliantly weave in exciting matchups for this summer.
The incredible detail of this custom fit allowed us to tell our schedule release in a unique way that is centered around WNBA Fashion and DC, to get our fans excited for the season, with much thanks to Syreeta.
