Sierra Leone is home to rich tradition & culture, diamonds and the beautiful designs of Sierra Leonean designer, Amizo. The designer who hails from Freetown is the creator of Maryzo Designs which she started in 2010.
The brand specializes in casual, evening and work attires, Africana (art objects relating to the history of Africa and its people), wedding dresses, couture, embroidered pieces, clothes for kids and accessories. Maryzo Designs targets the career minded woman who is confident, sexy and coming of age and is offering her a label that is modern, young and empowering.
Their latest collection titled “Pink Royalty” is a dedication to all the women who have battled breast cancer. The designer used chiffon and lace mixed with Ankara trimmings to create petite and beautiful pieces that accentuate the very aspect of femininity. The pieces include leather skirts and trousers with gold thread patterns, petite peplum tops and lovely dresses with pleats.
The collection was launched in October at a fundraising event for breast cancer research titled “Pink Friday” and at the ‘Thinking Pink’ Foundation’s Annual Fundraiser respectively held in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Here, it is portrayed against an amazing backdrop of the Sierra Leonean landscape with the models doing simple poses in the daylight.
