Yosuzi Hats: Celebrating South American Tribes

Yosuzi, creator of the Yosuzi lifestyle brand that celebrates the myths and cultures of South American tribes, grew up in Venezuela spending her childhood surrounded by the “traditional ceremonies, stories, and artisanal crafts of her ancestral Guajiro heritage.” After college at Boston University, she spent a decade of her career as a creative working in fashion, film, and advertising between New York City, Los Angeles, and, finally, London. Inspired by the deep emotional tie to her to her upbringing, she created the Yosuzi brand. Today, we are thrilled to have her hats in store at La Ree Boutique.
