Meet Our Models - Sharon

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, Sharon.

 

1) What’s your background (where are you originally from)?
I'm from Nigeria.
2) When was the last time you been to your country, if at all?
I have never been.
3) Before being introduced to our brand, what was your experience with African print/traditional African clothing?
Most of my traditional clothing was handmade by a tailor.
4) What attracts you to this type of clothing? 
The contemporary styles, the fact that it is an African owned business and the prints.
5) If you had to pick just 1 favorite piece from the Shakara stock thus far, which one would it be?
It would be the Nkem 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?
Weddings, African parties and church.
7) What’s one thing you want everyone reading right now to take away about you aside from your love for Shakara?
In this life, live to the fullest and live it being the best version of yourself.
Well said @sharonojelabi! Go show her some love on the gram !
