About Us

The ‘About Us’ page is one of the most important sections on your website. It’s where you tell your company story, describe your mission, and highlight what makes your brand unique.

A good About page should be clear, concise, and informative. It should also show your personality and be designed to appeal to your target audience. This beautiful design by Firstborn does just that, using a bold color palette and clean sans serif type to create a unique and engaging About Us page.

Founded by Salma Sherif and Leila Khalifeh, Zulu Madame creates artsy fashion pieces for multi-dimensional people who embrace their differences and power in all of their forms. They strive to make women feel their most confident selves and use their pieces as a platform for change. The label is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. They recently partnered with Nubian Hueman, a modern boutique that sells African apparel, to bring their fashion to the United States.

About the Designers

Fashion Zulu Boutique is designed by Salma Sherif and Leila Khalifeh, two artists and designers who are always on the search for design inspiration. They merged their studies in Design and Marketing to create loud and daring fashion pieces that encourage people to never settle for anything less than their most confident selves.

Papy Kaluw, founder of Urban Zulu House, was born into a family where being in the arts and not an engineering or science discipline was considered a major disgrace. This was the reason why he dropped out of university and learned to make his own living from skills that he taught himself.

He uses these skills to produce unique pieces that celebrate African heritages and arts. He now has his own shop in the heart of Market Theatre where you can find him just past Next and opposite Warren James. He has a passion for helping other young entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams and has established his fashion label as a platform to do so.

According to the book Forty Years Among the Zulus, in old days when the bride was a virgin she would wear a belt of ox hide from which were suspended tufts of monkeys’ tails and the skins of wild cats, a bunch of feathers or the skin of a dog; all in all her dress was covered with animal skins and furs. She’d adorn herself with beads and wear a small apron in the back of her upper thigh.

About the Brand
