About

Crafted. Vibrant. Heritage.

ROOTS

BERIQISU, created by Belkis Whyte, was inspired by her upbringing in Boston, her heritage in Ghana and her experiences as a young designer in New York. This variety of experiences, helped her envision a collection that made sense for her American lifestyle. It needed to be tailored, well crafted and incorporate the inspiring prints and rich colors of her Ghanaian heritage.

After studying fashion design and merchandising at Framingham University, Belkis walked straight off the graduation stage, hopped on a bus with a one-way ticket to New York City and has not looked back since. Her first jobs were designing for brands such as Natori, Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Burberry, Victoria’s Secret and Nautica to name a few. Belkis’ professional design skills range from the intricacies of delicate intimate apparel to the sharp clean lines of tailored menswear.

In 2012, when Belkis was laid off, she decided to take the time to reflect about what she wished and hoped to offer the fashion industry. Feeling gutsy and ready, Belkis opened an online shop with her one of a kind vintage finds, dubbing the vintage boutique Dreams of Fash. When she decided to make custom pieces for friends, she wanted to ensure each piece maintained the quality and craftsmanship, that made vintage pieces so rare. After several requests for custom made pieces and a growing clientele, she elected to focus on a collection that would represent a lifestyle…. BERIQISU.

BERIQISU, which is the designers given birth name, was chosen after her enlightening trip to Ghana. While there, she reconnected with family, visited old hangouts and absorbed her rich heritage.

THE BERIQISU WOMAN

Today BERIQISU has customers all over the globe from Australia, Finland, London, Ireland, Nigeria and more. Her pieces have been spotted on the likes of Beyonce, exposing her to a global clientele. The BERIQISU client is FIERCE, HARDWORKING and INSPIRED. She selects clothes that fit her well and make a confident statement.

BERIQISU COMMITMENT TO GHANA

While staying committed and focused on networking with women and the youth of Ghana. Belkis’ goal is to create and purchase fabrics directly from the fabric houses and manufacture solely in Ghana with women and young generation.
