My Story

Vivaansie started out as merino tops with a twist.

I wanted to design a top that could be worn day to night, that would mix and match with your current wardrobe.

They are classic style and embroidered with neon, animal print or sparkle. Designed by myself. They are intended to be a top for life, a timeless and simple style which is unique to Vivaansie.

With the different designs and colourways you can keep adding to your collection, thereby supporting sustainable fashion at the same time.

The Vivaansie top is a classic - yet each and every one has a bit of a twist to stand out from the crowd.

The 100% extra fine Merino Wool is of the best quality from one of Italy’s oldest mills.

Merino Wool does not bobble, it holds its shape, is odour free, feels super soft on the skin and adapts to your body temperature.

It’s ethical, sustainable and natural unlike so many other products on the market.

The incredible embroidery is done in the UK.

The level of detail and time that goes into each and every one of the Vivaansie tops means you are getting a truly bespoke and luxury product.

Because the designs were so popular, I decided to do t-shirts. These come from a family run factory in Turkey. I designed the shape of the t-shirts as well as the embroidery designs. It is super flattering and easy to wear. The neckline is a cross between a v and a scoop and has a raw edge finish. The 100% slub cotton is super soft. 

After lock down I expanded my range to include sweatshirts and joggers. Once again i designed the shape and fit of them. I also bought out new designs. 

So you can mix and match everything. The merino tops go with the joggers as do the sweatshirts and t/s. Giving you THE Vivaansie capsule wardrobe. 


The Viva in Vivaansie is my Mother who used to own a successful boutique called Viva and my nickname is Ansie -so the name Vivaansie was born!

I so hope you enjoy wearing your Vivaansie top as much as I have had in designing and making it for you.
