The Designer with a Flare:Ayissi of the Brand Wazal

AYISSI NGA Joseph-Marie aka JJ DU STYLE is a fashion designer who creates very chic street wear.

 

The French/Cameroonian designer whose father was a tailor, has decided to follow the footsteps of pioneer Cameroonian fashion designers such as Imane Ayissi and Martial Topolo by creating his own clothing line called ‘WAZAL’ which was launched in 2005.

 

His brand “WAZAL” is a blend of “WAZA”, the name of a natural park in the extreme north of Cameroon and the letter “L” which stands for Lion, the Cameroonian symbol. The natural park symbolizes respect, while the lion symbolizes power.

 

His 2016/2017 collection called ova Tété
is inspired by a Cameroonian slang ‘ova’ which means bigger and noble person. And Tété which refers to chic and bourgeois.
In addition, the word chic here is used to describe the amazing and modern appearance of the clothings. Therefore those who have good taste and know how to well dress are characterized as chic.

 

Noble and quality materials were used in this collection, including first choice wax (African print) from Senegal or Mali.

 

I will say this collection is indecent, 10 years in advance or shameless 5 years in advance. I prefer being ahead because the fashion world is in constant évolutions.
