ZURIKGIRL

ZG CANT STOP! WONT STOP!

 Straight out of college (EIU)  December of 2012, I started working on my start up. I loved fashion, I loved dressing up but I knew for a fact I didnt want to be a fashion designer or a fashion stylist. When I was younger, I watched my mom run several businesses, she had a grocerry store at Alakija,(lagos), a salon in satellite town, and also did a whole lot of fabric buying and selling from home. Being a business woman have always been my thing, and fashion just happened to be my passion. combined together I registered my business and zurikgirl csme about in May of 2013.

3 years ago, First ZG shoot. shot by Toksvision

I was a reseller which meant, I can buy products from third parties for a wholesale price and resell them at my own retail price.  As time went on, circulating the same products that can be found at any womens online store got boring and less and less profitable.  Fast forward to 2015 I decided to tough it out, deal with rejection, and ride the roller coaster of being a fashion entrepreneur which also started the spark of Zurik-by-zurikgirl clothing. I had an idea of the route I wanted to go with ZG.

First Zurikby zurikgirl – 2015

We started manufacturing the majority of ZG limited-edition Zurik-by-zurikgirl Afropop collection  in Lagos, Nigeria. We source one of a kind Ankara fabrics while incorporating morden contemporary shapes and styles throughout the designs, to make beautiful styles at a fraction of the price. I wanted ZG clothes easy-to-wear, fluently chic with a splash of personality and perfect for the contemporary woman with a big city mind on the go.  I wanted to be abile to walk into a boutuque and find ankara styles in the rack.

 After random walk in at boutiques, numerous phone calls, cancelled meetings and so many “No, not right now” ZG is/will be stocked in two independent boutiques here in Chicago.

Might not be a big deal to some but to me it is a stepping stone to bigger goals. I had a dream (day dream) cos I hardly dream lol…… anyways I had a dream I was at my first fashion tradeshow having the best conversation with one of the buyers for Macys and didn’t even know it till she pulled out her card and told me she would love to set a meeting with their team. (I spazzed out) then it hit me!!! I really can do this!!! On postive days like this I like to vent about ZG, I love the feeling of possiblities.

2016 Spring Zurik by zurikgirl

Sometimes I sit back and talk myself out of being great cause of fear, I question everything that can possibly go wrong and how I can easily Fail. Its hard when you dont have Daddys money, or investors money to actually carry out your plans and goals faster like you would like.  I guess the process is the thrill, It might take longer to come but the reward will come. Whats for ZG will be for ZG. That day dream just made me realize that I need to work harder and prepare my production cite/team together, the vision is getting clearer!!!  I want to be able to go to my first fashion tradeshow Spring of 2018. Hopefully by that time we will be stocking at Akira, and more local boutiques not justin chicago.

Founded in May 2014, Zurik by zurikgirl is a US brand made in Lagos Nigeria and sold in stores (independent boutiques) and online in the United States. Our clothes celebrate the diversity of African prints by re-imagining these vibrant textiles in contemporary shapes and styles. Our clothes are easy-to-wear, fluently chic with a splash of personality. They are perfect for the contemporary woman with a big city mind.

The end goal of zurikgirl is to be one of the few African fashion distributors in the United States. One day I want young girls to be able to walk into stores like H&M, Forever 21… Etc. and be able to purchase Afro inspired clothing.

TREND ALERT!! – “THE POM POM”

“Every runway season, a (shoe) star is born. It hits the catwalk, obsession ensues, and for months to come, we see iterations of it on red carpets, on street stylers, and even in the fashion blogger circuit. This time around, we suspect Gucci’s pom-pom heels are going to own this role. Not only have they made their way into some serious fashion insiders’ ensembles, but also, we’re seeing other versions beginning to pop up everywhere.” –  WHOWHATWEAR

ZGs we are obbssed and cant wait to make a DIY statment out of pom poms.

ZG TOP 3 MUST HAVE SUMMER 2015 TREND

1. WHITE SHIRT DRESS: We’re suckers for a timeless dress and admittedly the shirt dress is one of our all-time favorites. Aside from the fact that it’s a regular amongst tastemakers like Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad and Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller, it’s warm-weather friendly and works for every body type making it a true closet keeper.

Shop similar here at ZG

2. BOLD FLORAL SET: As usual floral always seems to be “in,” the blooming print is reborn practically every spring and summer on the runways. This season, it’s popping up as a bold and even more playful, with designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors pushing the print from head-to-toe. We’re ready to live in an all-floral uniform as sunnier skies!!

Get similar look her in our Flower power set and Fuchia top skirt at ZG

3. FRINGE: fringe is one of the biggest trend this SS 2015. Not limited to the token ’70s-style leather jackets, this season, it’s hanging off the hemlines of pencil skirts, it’s showing up as a print-like embellishment on sweaters, and it’s completely covering dresses. We love it and we’ve got it here at ZG

On Saturday March 21st 2015 ZurikGirl  showcased our ZurikByZurikgirl AfroPop Collection at the 6th Annual Rock the RED Fashion Show powered by the The Red Pump Project . We were more than excited to be a part of the show. The Red Pump Project® raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls, using the red shoe as a symbol of empowerment. The Red Pump Project does work on the ground and online to ensure that women are empowered with knowledge about HIV/AIDS and the issues surrounding it.  The event was filled with fashion, Fun, philanthropy and an overall great networking evironment.

The 2015 Grammy Awards definitely did not disappoint in the style department!

Many celebrities brought their A-game. some celebrities we expected to Stop the WORLD in a banging lucious gown came a little short. We saw alot of black and deep plunge clevage on the carpet; we can say the clevage is forever a go to sexy look.

Another ZG hair crush was Katy Perry. The short purple hair was very easy on the eyes and made that not so pretty dress she had on a little more bearable.

5 PRODUCTS TO KEEP YOUR SKIN GLOWING THIS WINTER

5products

Hey Divas, we have a little fashion beauty tip for you. As the weather outside gets more dreadful, during this holiday season; it can also make you look dreadful. Between the icy dry air and strong blowing wind outdoors; without proper care you can easily end up with flaky skin, chapped lips, raw hands, and more. Here’s our ZG affordable remedy to eliminate dryness and keep hydrated, but also to preserve that once sun-kissed summer healthy glow. From lips, skin and body these are the products in our ZG winter-proof glow routine.

  1. Biore Self Heating Mask: This one minute mask gives you purified pores in just 1 minute. The unique formula heats on contact with water and skin to open pores and draw out pore-clogging dirt and oil, then cools leaving skin tightly smooth and refreshed. With Natural Charcoal, known for its ability to draw out impurities and trap them. Use up to 2-3 times a week for deeply cleaned, healthy-looking skin starting with your pores.

 

  1. EOS Soft Lip Balm: Pretty to look at and enriched with natural conditioning oils, moisturizing shea-butter and antioxidant vitamins C & E, nourishes for immediately softer, more beautiful lips. Divas, you may want to keep one in your pocket, one in your desk and one in your car.
  1. Wild Argan Oil Body Scrub: Personally one of my favorite items on the list this body scrub lifts away dead skin cells, helps stimulate skin surface, and leaves skin feeling softer and smoother.
  1. Superfriut Conditioner: dry unhealthy hair comes with winter; shea moisture superfriut conditioner contains powerful antioxidant properties that support and protect dry hair and other environmental aggressors. Nourishing oils hydrate and smooth coarse hair.
  1. Juicy Deluxe Mini: When people say “you smell like outside” doesn’t that make you feel embarrassed? This mini juicy deluxe comes with four different scents are pocket size and perfect for your handbag, or car; keep you smelling great throughout the day.
