Belkis's story

I love prints and color that creates a feeling or mood. Maybe it's because I grew up in Accra, Ghana (West Africa), always brightly colored, happy, and an obsession passed on through generations. I was born in Ghana and lived there till about the age of 9 years old, then migrated to the United States with my family. It has been an adventure to accustom myself to a whole new culture and country...I was in love! I attended private school, then college at Framingham University, where my eyes were opened to the various facets of FASHION! Since then I have designed for brands such as Natori, Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Burberry, Victoria’s Secret and Nautica. My professional design skills range from the intricacies of delicate intimate apparel to the sharp clean lines of tailored menswear. I bring these skills of tasteful, modern, and personalized fashion to BERIQISU. And hope to expand it to every corner of the world.
