I would like to introduce to you the amazing lady behind ZAHRA ZAKARIA designs...
Before we go into it, I must admit, with her it was love at first blog??? Hence her being my style crush here. A great inspiration and a good example of how empowered women are in Islam as opposed to the oppression others imagine. <<<I might just start begging for a collaboration at some point at this rate lol..>>>
Zahra Akinpeju, young muslimah of Nigerian origin, just completed her first degree in Economics at The School of Oriental and African Studies.
Now I'm a solo designer under the Zahra Zakariya alias, and its really nice working as an individual as your creativity shines thru. I'm excited to add more African prints and inspiration to my work and also look forward to expanding my scoe to cover women empowerment and confidence building, particularly in the muslim communities of the west African region.
Whatever business ideas u have, be it fashion, cooking, event planning,,, take the plunge! And leave the rest to Allah. Plan well, have a clear vision and work hard. As future/ current wives and mothers, we are the pillars of the community. Being entrepreneurs is vital for the betterment of the ummah and we all need to support one another.
