Gaëlle Prince Biography
Gaëlle Prince, French born originally from Cameroon and Togo, is a 32 years old figurehead of what we call a “Designers & Talents Hunter”.
After she obtained her Bachelor Degree in International Business with a focus on Fashion, Luxury and Lifestyle, Gaëlle carried out a 6-years working experiences in both Purchasing and Sales Export Management departments of worldwide well-known companies such as L’Oréal, Timberland and Chevignon.
Throughout the years, and constantly obsessed by the idea of opening one day her own gallery combining her love (she inherited from her parents) for the Afro-inspired art & culture, and her wish to support emerging Artists and Designers out coming of the French African-Caribbean diaspora based in Paris, Gaëlle initiated the N.Y.A.K.È. Concept back March 2016.
Since then, Gaëlle has successfully developed her network throughout Africa, Europe, the United States and Canada by personally meeting extraordinary talented Artists and Designers, emerging herself in their respective universes trying to capture the soul of their works, supporting them in their brand development, visiting their studios or handcrafting production workshops.
The “N.Y.A.K.È. Concept
N.Y.A.K.È., whose name stands for “New, Young, Artistic, Kultural & Eclectic“, is the result of a fascinating quest carried out during two years of incredible adventures, alongside a group of French African-Caribbean Artists and Designers, eager to recreate a unique artistic world, reflecting their respective vision with multicultural influences
The collective then gathers mainly Paris-based Artists and but also other talented people discovered in London, Copenhagen, Dakar, the Caribbean and so on, a veritable melting pot in terms of origins, social classes and ages, conferring to the N.Y.A.K.È. its figurehead position on the Parisian scene in Art and Afro-ethnic Design.
Finally, N.Y.A.K.È. is a tribute to an eponymous person who inspired this project, Martine NYAKÈ-PRINCE, the mother of the Founder, who suddenly died 3 years ago of a rare disease.
The personality of this exceptional self-taught woman, pugnacious and great dreamer all at once, of her ideals and deep convictions about tolerance and unity of the worlds, have deeply influenced her daughter, Gaëlle PRINCE. These values, according to both of them, essential foundations of the construction of a better world for the next generations, have greatly contributed and motivated the creation of this original concept, a real crossroads gathering people coming from the four corners of the globe, respectful of their different origins and willing to empower each other while mixing their gifts and skills.
