About Zinkata

Authentic Fashion & Style

Zinkata was founded in 2009 by Ezinne Chinkata with an initial offering of Styling Services for Magazines and Celebrities. Ezinne’s natural flair and passion for Authentic fashion garnered her a quick trajectory across Nigeria’s fast evolving fashion industry.

Zinkata.com was launched initially as an offset of Ezinne’s Tumblr style blog. Zinkata opened its first retail store in August 2014 and has fast become a hub for Bold, Authentic, Directional and hand-picked fashion items with a strong bearing towards Made in Africa items. Zinkata’s ethos is centered around creating ultimate value for the consumer via our meticulously curated fashion offerings and impeccable service. Welcome to our online store.
