Our story has its own unique beauty to it, but we will not write a book here. If you want to know more, we encourage you to browse our instagram @your_expression_zone, reach out to us, or even to any of our ambassadors and just get to know us, the family, the tribe, the beautiful interesting and special people behind an impactful movement .
We at YEZ pride ourselves in that which makes the individual, the individual. We are known as the different ones, the weird ones, the hippies, the rebels, the outcasts, the strange ones, the special ones, the beautiful-energy ones, the ones that care more about how they feel, without being selfish, rather than the opinion of everyone else! What are we, who are we, why are we who we are?
The YEZ founders are a young, very determined and ambitious couple from South Africa, presently living in Lisbon Portugal. Over the years we have been inspired by the peace, love, unity and respect (PLUR) that flows amongst the festival community that we have encountered. The freedom of expression that can be experienced is unbelievable. It is, beautiful, creative, inspiring, mesmerizing, emotional, extraordinary, and unique. Each person is their own masterpiece, many of which wear gorgeous art in form of fashion expressing their inner colors on the outside.
They say that what you wear, is a part of who you are, this is true! Your thoughts, feelings, emotions and more are expressed by what you buy, get, give or wear. However a HUGE problem in today's society, we have been brought up to conform in some kind of way! Whether it was by our parents, school, our peers & friends, work or TV and social media, etc… Someone has had a huge influence on how you dress and how you think of yourself. Far too many people are not wearing what they want to wear in the fear of not impressing others, or standing out, or being ‘’that’’ person. This is a fundamental flaw in our thinking, when we do this, it has been proven, that we are subconsciously denying a part of ourselves. The soul wants to wear or buy something colorful and unique, but the mind is scared and thinks ‘’ what if … ‘’.
If we deny on a daily basis, the parts of ourselves that make us different, valuable, irreplaceable and unique, then we are falling into the trap of creating a life that is not truly meant for us and that we will not enjoy. Do not sell your happiness, love and comfortability for the opinion of others. You are not just a piece in a machine, you are a beautiful, unique and extraordinary individual.
How many great and special individuals can you think of? Do you think that they were like everyone else, fitted in, and cared what everyone else thought of them? Nooo!!! Special individuals who changed the world , one way or another,embraced their individuality and pursued the special and unique journey that life had for them.
We at YEZ love ourselves and others,we love expressing ourselves and love inspiring others to do so, to feel comfortable and happy in their own skin. We love to spread good vibes, to help, to inspire, motivate, reassure, affirm, introduce new perspectives, be valuable to the world.
As a collective this will be our stepping stone into creating an incredible impact, we know that what we do, will rezonate and spread deeper than we know. We will and are creating a butterfly effect that has a positive impact, the question just remains, how big can WE make it. Yes WE, YEZ is not just the brand of the two beautiful founders, no, YEZ is a family and we are co-creating impact and changing the world, one person at a time, starting with ourselves.
One day, if you have not already been lucky enough to experience it and realize it, you will embrace, appreciate and thrive in that which makes you unique! If you have not, then be excited, because it’s coming. The mere fact that you are reading this means that you are on a journey of self discovery. We have started an incredible journey, that we know, will not end with disappointment or failure. We are beyond grateful to have you be a part of our FAMILY and be a place for your personal expression zone.
Unleash your inner colors, let those inner colors shine!
With lots of love, light and positive energy!
