Weaving Dreams

Back in August 2008, I wrote a post about Afghan Fashion. One designer I mentioned was Zolaykha Sherzad, and now emel magazine have featured an interesting interview with her in the August 2009 edition:

Zolaykha Sherzad has made a life-changing career move, from award-winning architect in New York to founder of Zarif Design in Kabul. Mariam Mahir talks to the lady behind the fashion house about her faithful determination to re-awaken her country from decades of muted creative expression, preserving traditional Afghan costume.

You can read the interview here.

Thank you for posting my article. Zolaykha is an inspiration to us all. Not only has she revived traditional Afghani costume, but has taken it upon herself to educate and improve the social development of her fellow countryfolk, not to mention propogate an exquisite craft adding her own modern twist to flourish in the 21st century.
