Viviane Gomis create African inspired handcrafted jewellery, millinery and accessories for fashion conscious women looking for exclusive, vibrant and edgy statement pieces that reflect their individuality and allow them to express it every day.
From a very young age, art has been a passion for Viviane. She started making jewellery about 12 years ago, after trying her hands at many things such as handcrafted greeting cards and wedding stationery.
Her creations have always reflected her identity and culture, so it was only natural that when she began exploring jewellery making, African Wax fabric (or Ankara) was one of the first materials she was naturally drawn to.
Her pieces became very popular amongst her friends and family, so ultimately she has embarked on taking this passion seriously and create a business out of it.
A historic and ground breaking concept of African couture pioneered by Hamid Mahjid Bun-Seisay. This project serves as a prerequisite to drive the cycle of generational change by the imperative need to meet the desires of people from different parts of Africa and for a definitive and genuine African change to blend with our cultural difference and style.
The name Harique Vazi derived from the combination of the names of one of my sons (Harique: came from Haroun, Sharique) and Vazi (A Swahili word meaning “WEAR”). As a fashion person I realise that I spent a lot of my spare time looking and comparing the designs of great Western designers so my passion for fashion grew wider. I started looking at various African designers and their use of colours and mixtures of just African fabric and accessories, and as a result of this my love for fashion began to grow within. After travelling to Tanzania, Ghana, Morocco, Australia, America and parts of Europe, entwined with my background growing up between tailors and garment makers in Sierra Leone, I knew that more can be done to improve this industry. I love what I do.
Following all this, Harique Vazi was born!

Izelia aims to create a modern and sophisticated range of ready to wear pieces through combining African wax prints with contemporary cuts. Each piece features a new twist on African-inspired fashion and my interpretation of upcoming fashion trends.
The striking batik patterns, Tie-dye and the colourful Ankara print, is apparent of my African heritage and my aim of being among a unique set of AfriCapitalists – African entrepreneurs driving growth, awareness and development in Africa, through marketing and selling the best that Africa has to offer.
My ambitions stretch far beyond the UK to Africa. While Izelia showcases the best in contemporary African fashion in London, continental Europe and the US, it will also fundamentally be a showcase for the organic growth of Africa's fashion and creative sector which is being driven both in Africa and in the Diaspora by visionary entrepreneurs. Indeed in addition to partnering with and supporting women in rural Sierra Leone, I am looking to a future where Izelia will establish a strong manufacturing and production base in Sierra Leone, to support its growth.
I intend to inspire and assist women in the rural, be a voice for these women and young creatives. Whilst the brand is becoming well entrenched in the UK, as an African, I feel I have a role to play in the economic development of my continent. Through Izelia, I wish to invest long-term in Sierra Leone's private sector and I am interested in developing manufacturing, as well as production factories and establishing additional outlets in Africa. I am proud to be among a growing crop of entrepreneurs who are creating employment opportunities and bringing economic growth to our countries.
