conscious, chic & cosmopolitan
“This is it? Did I wait my whole life to become a hijabi to wear the rest of it polyester?” These were the thoughts of the Creative Director & Founder of Zamzam Zalila when she looked for modest fashion. Beside the quality she also missed hijab friendly clothing that embody a cosmopolitan flair – suitable for the working environment – and that are produced under fair conditions. So, the idea was born: Zamzam Zalila - a conscious chic RTW line.
Since then, many things happened:
February 2016 Foundation of Zamzam Zalila
May 2016 Modest Fashion Week in Istanbul/Turkey
August 2016 International Modest Fashion & Design Festival in Toronto/Canada
October 2016 Islamic Lifestyle and Fashion Show Zurich/Switzerland
International Islamic Fair Jakarta/Indonesia
November 2017 Workshop about “Muslim identity in the working world”, RAJR -Geneva/Switzerland
Push Talk about „Hijab and career”, Iman Zentrum, Darmstadt/Germany
May 2018 Push talk about “Hijab and career”, Abu Bakr Mesjid - Frankfurt/Germany
The mother of three/fashion editor for Basma Magazine/full-time Sales Development Executive for an airline doesn’t believe in pigeon holes, but in the fact that you should be allowed to play multiple roles in life and not be forced into one stereotype. Empowerment is hereby the key: Zamzam Zalila is there to celebrate feminity and make women feel comfortable everywhere they step out. You should have the right to become the best version of yourself you decide to be. Even though, people tell you that it`s not possible …because impossible looks so good on you!
