“Zena’s debut collection stems from her fascination with the African heritage, which is rich in emotions and compelling stories. Her collection represents the colorful and vibrant Africa contrasted with vivid imagery of struggle, fight, survival and hope.”
Who is you biggest role model in the business world and why?
Something a lot of people might not know is that I have a day job. I work as a project manager for Hewlett Packard by day in the IT industry which is a completely different environment for me. The IT industry is highly male dominant and my role is always challenging me in different ways and offers me a great learning experience, where I have managed to apply a lot of the things I have learnt to my personal business. Although in essence the two industries seem very different, what I have learnt and still am learning as a project manager can be applied in different scenarios when managing my brand, as many of the principles are the same.
