Good morning sugar babes,
what about kicking off this Monday talking about our fashion? (What else ^-^)
As you know I love getting familiar with emerging designers and sharing with you their outstanding talents.
Founded in 2010 by Creative Director, Zainab Ashadu, Zashadu is a leading British/Nigerian sustainable luxury accessories brand, specialising in handcrafted leather bags. Zashadu operates out of Lagos, Nigeria, where Ashadu lives and works with sustainably sourced leathers, farmed exotic skins and rough cut precious stones set in brass. All of Zashadu’s pieces are created in its workspace in Lagos by a team that benefits from traditional leatherworking techniques, unique to West Africa, and passed down through generations by a community of Northern Nigerian artisans. With her sustainable project, Zainab Ashadu is a finalist in The Independent Handbag Designer Awards 2014 in the FEED’s “Most Socially Responsible Handbag” category.
What I personally love about this brand is the unique imprint of the craftsmanship their creations bear, combined with the luxury of the materials employed and an elegant design meeting modern trends. I can only imagine a Zashadu bag donned by a charismatic lady, naturally stylish and outrageously classy.
Did YOU know this brand fashionistas?
Do you think Ms. Ashadu will win the award?
Looking forward to hearing your precious thoughts my gems!
Tons of love
