Chiedza Dawn Ziyambe founder of the Miss Chii lingerie brand grew up surrounded by lushly coloured neighbouring gardens. Changing seasonal colours and natural features comforted and inspired her as a young girl and nurtured a taste for colour, pattern and design as she took in that environment growing up. Aspiring to be a designer from a tender age and being interested in how things work from a technical perspective, she first undertook engineering training at a U.K. university. While this learning satisfied some of her passion, she needed an outlet for more personal expression and creativity involving her first love: colour and textiles. Nevertheless, her new-found skills and knowledge were invaluable in designing her first collection of ‘Miss Chii’s lingerie’ in 2013, which exhibit technical excellence in design of lingerie that demands improved performance.

For several generations our family has been involved in the cultivation of Ghana’s globally recognised cocoa. Our paternal great-great Grandmother owned cocoa plantations in the Ashanti and Western regions of Ghana, as did our paternal Grandfather. On our mother’s side of the family, our Grandfather grew cocoa from the late 1950’s until his passing, after which a portion of his plantation was inherited by his wife, our Grandmother, in the 1980’s. In December 2016, during a tour of our maternal Grandmother’s cocoa plantation in the Western region of Ghana, our founder, Raphael, was struck with the idea of processing Ghana’s quality cocoa into luxury chocolate. Realising the great opportunity that processing organic cocoa into chocolate could bring for the local community in the form of higher wages and jobs, Raphael returned to London determined to utilise our family’s heritage and disrupt the chocolate industry’s status quo.

Yea I just made that up. A visionaire is someone who has lots of vision. They are rich in it. I have this habit of viewing things and instantly putting it in a frame. It’s so annoying but that is what happens. However, whatever doesn’t fit in to my mind frame, doesn’t mean that it can’t be used or included. Sometimes I look at a photograph and wonder what it would look like if it came to life, what was happening when it was being taken; and what happened after it was taken. Either way, something happened.

Las Olas, meaning “the waves”, was birthed from an idea thought up on a balcony in Barbados. Following this, we visited Jamaica, Guatemala, Honduras and Belize and studied the different methods, ingredients and what rum really meant to those living in these countries. We decided we wanted to create something we felt was representative of the vibes and cultures found in our own hometown, London. We took something we love and put our own twist on it, resulting in a truly unique premium spiced rum. It is our mission to bring rum to the forefront of people’s minds, and make it more of an obvious drink of choice to be savoured, rather than something to be hidden away and disguised within cocktail blends. That is why we created something which can be enjoyed alone, on the rocks, or added to your favourite cocktails to add an additional dimension of flavour.

Ngozi Ossai is a Biomedical scientist who founded GOZI Haircare. It all started in 2010 when she first went natural. She cut off all her long relaxed hair. She was tired of having damaged, thin and colored hair. She wanted healthier hair. She had watched TV programmes as a young girl and often wondered why her hair couldn’t just be the “wake up and go type as seen on American TV shows ”. After her big chop, she soon realised there were no products in the market specific to taking care of her natural 4C hairtype. She got online, Youtube and blogs which emphasised that there was little to no representation for her hair. She researched online for the best ingredients that work for her hair type. Using her test mixtures on herself, family and friends she arrived on the GOZI haircare formulas today for the Hair Oil and Shea butter Moisturising creme. Evidently her formula has tremendously helped her hair growth to its current hair length today. She was determined to make her natural 4C hair grow despite the stereotype. 8 years later, after fine tuning her natural mixes, they have worked. She found the perfect mix of natural ingredients […]

When it comes to cake, I’d always been more of a consumer than a creator until I was given a top secret recipe for traditional honey cake by a dear friend’s mum. The resulting loaf went down a storm at the office, bathed me in baking glory, and I’ve been pretty much covered in flour since. Well, that’s not strictly true. I was seven months pregnant with my second child at the time, so I obviously left the kitchen briefly to give birth and spend a little time getting used to life as a family of four. Night feeds helpfully turned out to be a great opportunity to binge-watch baking videos on YouTube. I took a short evening course, got busy experimenting in the kitchen and haven’t looked back. What started with a festive pear and ginger layer cake for a family get-together quickly progressed to regular batches of macarons, bespoke birthday cake creations, and that most important responsibility in the hierarchy of baking, wedding cake. And just like that, this baker was born.
