Arabic Fashion Week is a big deal … I mean really big deal. This is what I mean.
The show has Global brands such as Victoria Secrets, Vogue and many big fashion names represented in different capacities. The event also has representatives from only the top fashion brands from 22 Arab countries. AFW is the only platform in the world to promote demi-couture / Pret-À-couture / Couture-À-Porter. Aside from fashion brands, only high-performance models can run on that platform. Talk about steamy competition!
Now let’s take it home.
The Arab fashion week cannot last as scheduled this year as scheduled last year (for obvious reasons), but we have a story from last year. It’s about fashion designers, stylists and high-end lifestyle influencers who are clearly on the rise. He is young, talented, and quite affectionate. We found the story and did a little digging. Enjoy!
Zori Makama is a 25-year-old Nigerian fashion designer, influenced by lifestyle, and self model hobbyist. The creative director at Zori Makama inc started in fashion quite early. He started with modeling as a hobby and then professionally before starting a full career in Fashion design that has taken him so far.

Here’s what little we know about it: (source: Bellanaija, his Instagram handle, his blog)
He graduated with a law degree from Houdegbe University of North America (Hnaub LLB) at the age of 20. But before that, he had identified his talent for fashion quite early and remembered playing around styling himself with his favorite designer clothes like many young girls do.
In his first years using social media, he moved the hobby to social media and became quite consistent with organizing and modeling himself in his favorite designer clothes, placing it in the hands of his social media and marking these designers. This eventually led to several fashion shows with several international brands and several local brands as well.
He had found another way to make money from his skills when he was in his early years at university. His sharpness for style is always impressive and he arranges friends and family before developing it into the right income stream. He went on to study Fashion design in Dubai in 2018 and the rest is history.
Currently, Zori Makama is a Fashion Designer who has scored quite a lot of success in the fields of Fashion, modeling, clothing management and fashion consulting with famous brands such as Steve Madden and EGO UK.
He started playing with the idea of having a fashion label before leaving for fashion school and had served a number of leading clients in that capacity. Showing her work at the Arab Fashion Week is a strong statement and we can’t wait to see what else she wears.
Now that you know why he has our attention, I will give you good news. We reached out and asked if he would mind giving us an interview and he was kind to accept. So wait a minute for the next issue. We encourage you to comment on questions that you want him to answer during the interview and we might make him answer your questions.
