ZAAF Presents Made in Africa - Afar, Ethiopia

Posted: May, 23rd 2019 Contributor: Bilen Shifferaw,

For our latest photoshoot, our team of eleven selected from across the Continent ventured forth with world-renowned photographer, Joey L. to the Danakil Depression, the hottest place on earth. For our newest collection, I was determined to go to whatever extreme necessary to showcase to the world this rich and unique landscape in the heart of Ethiopia.

Building on our prize – winning and internationally recognized work established in Ethiopia, ZAAF is developing long-term growth opportunities across Africa, partnering with skilled artisans to develop high-end designer products that celebrates the boundless depths of our continent’s ancient cultures, designs, and natural wonders that have laid the foundation for the next wave of incomparable creativity, luxury, and style. Our brand offers economic empowerment to artisans and a new perspective and standard of global luxury. Our vision is to create products people love and want to buy as this is the most sustainable of approaching economic development

On Monday, July 1, 2019, ZAAF is hosting 150 guests at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art in Washington, DC. We are featuring the art of fashion photography with the first public display of the stunning images captured at the Danakil Depression, Ethiopia. This will be accompanied by a short behind the scenes documentary of the photoshoot and a presentation of the new collection. We are excited to invite the DC community to come and experience all five senses while enjoying complimentary drinks and African theme hors d’oeuvres.
