The best part of running a multi-brand store is getting to stock truly spectacular fashion pieces. We pride ourselves on curating amazing fashion and having our hands on the pulse of African Fashion. Another really thrilling part of running Zinkata is getting to meet truly amazing people coming through our doors. I remember vividly, getting a phone-call  from the Zinkata store manager and finding out that I had just missed by a hairs breath, the one and only literary genius, Chimamanda Adichie in the store! I was bummed! She is such an Icon and we are great admirers of her talent!

I have had the pleasure of finally meeting her in store and it was such a pleasure. As a friend would say, “Chimamanda is one of Nigeria’s greatest exports”. Indeed she is and it was even more apparent on meeting her;  softly spoken yet super exacting  and courteous. A class act in every way! We are so proud of her achievements and doubly impressed by her relentless championing of “MadeInNigeria” fashion.
