Displaying IMG_0735.JPG



















Ayissi nga Joseph Marie is the creator of the brand Wazal. This Collection is called "Ova Tété". This collection 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.

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

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. In 2006, he launched his first designs which are worn by some celebrities such as SINGUILA, Alpeco, WAYNE BECKFORD, ROMARIC Koffi and Lalcko. 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.
He went through a professional training in VANESSA RUIZ fashion school in Paris and he later on specialized in creating tuxedo jackets.
