Meet Our Models - Fatima

Meet Our Models - Fatima

Models don’t always get the amount of love and credit they deserve. An item of clothing could look amazing hanging up in your closet but chances are, you bought that shirt or dress or the entire outfit because of how it was modeled, whether by yourself (shout out to fitting rooms) or that person who was hired to give the outfit some life.

We are dedicating this segment to the models who so generously lent us their time and good vibes to bring our pieces to life. You'll get a peak into who they are and their interests as they relate to African fashion. So, without further ado, we introduce to you, Fatima.

 

1) What’s your background (where are you originally from)?
I’m Senegalese.
2) When was the last time you been to your country, if at all?
When i was 4, unfortunately.
3) Before being introduced to our brand, what was your experience with African print/traditional African clothing?
I've seen or worn African print/ traditional clothing pretty much my whole life, specially when I’m going to an African events or wedding. 
4) What attracts you to this type of clothing?
What attracts me the most about African print/ traditional clothing is it’s history, the culture and tradition. 
5) If you had to pick just 1 favorite piece from the Shakara stock thus far, which one would it be? 
The Chinwe Ankara Dress. (Please note this item was a 1 of 1 and is out of stock)
6) What are some places you could see yourself wearing Shakara?
Any African event or somewhere I would like to represent African traditional clothing.
7) What’s one thing you want everyone reading right now to take away about you aside from your love for Shakara? 
My life motto is to live my life to the fullest, enjoy every moment I have with my friends and family and to not settle for less 💕
