Hello Visitors,

My name is Gisèle Gomez (AKA Kiba-Gisèle Gomez) and my primary Fashion Brand name is: "Gisèle Gomez". I am an Artist and Fashion Designer (Creatrice de Mode) and I have been creating things with my hands since I was seven.

I have among other degrees, Masters in Fashion Design Stylist/Modelist (Men, Women and Children Wear), Merchandising, Marketing and Communication from French Fashion Schools Esmod and “Ecole De La Chambre Syndicale De La Couture Parisienne. Also, my Minors are Fashion Modeling teaching (Print, Video and Runway), Make-up and Hair Styling.

In 1982, I was awarded the First Prize in Haute-Couture in Paris, France. Here are a few News Papers and Magazine covers on my art work: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2004647&id=1345118087&l=e0c48a637d

I fluently speak French, English, and 4 African Dialects: Fon, Wolof, Yoruba and Mina.

I am a disabled person suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and from a Second-hand Smoker COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) with a Severe form of Asthma. Yet, I have never smoked a single cigarette in my life.

Because of my illness I must avoid being involved in Fashion Shows and Trade Shows; as you may know a large majority of the people in the Fashion Industry smoke heavily precisely to release their stress! This is very crippling for me and I am forced to work from home. Fortunately, I am computer savvy, which allows me to set up my online Stores and get some of my fashion collections, Vintage items and Home Decoration products on the Internet.

I am presently launching a new collection based on Lycra and African print fabrics called Pagne Wax, Ankara, Java, Batik, etc... This new collection will be presented as my "VersaStyle Collection" and sold very soon in my other Etsy store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GiseleGomezCreations - As a matter of fact, I was the very first Fashion Designer and Stylist who has used the Pagne Wax to create clothing (refer to my collection "Bush-wear"), shoes, bags, suitcases, umbrellas, raincoats, accessories and jewelry; also the first one who has introduced its modern touch to the African Elite in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, and later to the Western World (Europe, USA). Here is the Story of the Pagne Wax: http://www.teheran.ir/spip.php?article989

I enjoy passing on my knowledge and experiences by teaching, either online or off-line from the comfort of my apartment, a variety of disciplines such as Fashion Modeling (Print, Video and Runway) and make-up. I welcome R-E-A-L people of all sizes and shapes in my classes: Petite, Tall, Full-figured, Plus Sizes, Matured, Teenagers and Kids. Since 1982, I have created a Modeling Program called "LES BEAUTES DE L'OMBRE" to help introduce R-E-A-L people of all sizes and shapes onto the runways and into the Fashion Magazines.

Creating new items and crafting things with my hands helps me cope with my health issues. I am a survivor!! I have personally created and designed all the products displayed here and on my Fan Page ( http://www.facebook.com/GiseleGomezCreations ), Whether it's the present Bead-Mania collection for which I have manually made each and every beaded outfits, fashion and cellphones accessories presently displayed on my online stores, or my other fashion collections such as VersaStyle, Bush-Wear (the Pagne Wax, Ankara and Batik collection), Sculpture On Fabric collection, and the Home Decor items seen on the photos on Facebook.

Should you have any question, please feel free to send us a convo message.

Thank you for your interest in my work!

Gisèle Gomez
