IIB is an abbreviation for BLESS BY BLESS, this signifies the three occurrences of the letter “B” in the brand’s name and is also found in the logo.
BLESS BY BLESS was designed by Bless Maz, creating a bridge between luxury and wardrobe essentials. The collection has influence in New York, Boston and Los Angeles. The latest collection from Bless By Bless made a debut showing in Los Angeles Fashion Week 2022.
The luxury brand looks to serve as a message for love, according to Maz, who said, “This is a labor of love, an untold story that goes beyond fashion, beyond collections, beyond seasons.”
BLESS BY BLESS offers exclusive luxury pieces, developed around the principle of unity. BLESS by BLESS is powered by the House of Luv Atelier, their foundation was built on 250 Canal Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts.
For Maz, the seed for design was planted back in his village in East Mashonaland Zimbabwe. Under his mother’s tutelage, Maz would learn two significant lessons – he is one-of-a-kind and accountability for change rests in his hands.
“The most precious moments in my life belong to sitting next to my mother, watching her sew, and being in awe of the amazing things her hands created with only thread and fabric,” Maz stated on his official website. The love his mother has shown him is lined on every piece of the BLESS BY BLESS collection.
Connected to the brand’s mission is TRIIIBE, its an acronym for Triple B in BLESS BY BLESS. The TRIIIBE looks to unite the collective community as a tribe, derived from African culture. Additionally, the ARMY OF LUV is a non-profit organization that is under the BLESS BY BLESS conglomerate.
The ARMY OF LUV mission is to “empower society with free emotional intelligence resources and events that educate on empathy, kindness, tolerance, motivation, and unity. These resources will be provided online through THE ARMY OF LUV ACADEMY which will collaborate with corporations and school systems in 2021.”
BLESS BY BLESS is defined on its website as a “limited edition fashion brand of timeless wardrobe essentials, with fine fabrics and minimal asymmetrical silhouettes. No collections, no seasons, it mainly consists of convertible, gender neutral, ready-to-wear capsules influenced by the traditional African garments of its designer’s heritage.”
When the luxury brand debuted their latest pieces during Los Angeles Fashion Week at the Petersen Automobile Museum, men and women wore the message of love with pride.
