Born in Kurdistan, Iraq and raised in London, Payzee has established herself as a Fashion stylist shortly after taking a break from her Psychology Degree. She has since carved out a unique position amongst London’s most innovative fashion enthusiasts.
Distinct style and vision allowed her to gain a credible reputation amongst peers as well as being featured on publications worldwide and collaborating with established brands.
Exploring her traditional roots and the vibrant city she resides in, London, Payzee is known for her fluid style, this has always been key for Payzee, to express herself without any limits.
Garment Construction has been a natural path for Payzee, going on to study at London Retail Fashion Academy to expand her skills. This led to collaborating with with the likes of Little Mix and Fuse ODG to create unique bespoke pieces.
Payzee thrives in putting together outfits and experimenting with freehand patterns, fabrics, colours and trends of the past and present, combining styling skills and costume design.
The skills she acquired on her journey have been applied to Luxury Fashion Retail where she had the opportunity to work with McQ by Alexander McQueen, Isabel Marant and most recently closely with British designer Neil Barrett, picking up Visual Merchandising, Buying and management skills.
Payzee has recently taken her audience on a very different journey, opening up about her life outside of fashion. Since 2019 she has since started her activism and the humanitarian work, something she has always cared about deeply.
Growing up in a household of 6 women, Women’s Rights has always been close to Payzee's heart. Through her personal experiences such as Child Marriage, FGM and and the loss of her sister, Banaz, to a so called 'honour' killing, Payzee is keen to break the silence on these issues her peers around the world face every day.
In her TEDx talk, Payzee describes in great detail the struggles she faced as a young Kurdish girl growing up in the UK, overcoming those and what needs to be changed in our society and legislation to protect girls and women better.
Payzee now dedicates her life to being the voice of the voiceless and calling for change, she is a proud member of the Campaigns team at IKWRO.
