I’m a neuroscientist, psychiatrist, and karaoke rockstar. I love to read books and eat flowers off of trees (and then make pickles out of them).
To me, the process of doing a thing is more important for the joy it brings than the product it makes. So I steer myself by my engagement in the process, rather than the goal of the product.
I was drawn to Zainab's designs because of her joyful and vibrant use of color, and engagement in the translation of different art forms (music, architecture, photography) to tell an immersive story.
I love the opportunity to embody this when I wear her art, and to spread her joy when people ask me about these pieces.
I style my Zainab textiles as a scarf or wrap, and have a couple dresses I love to play in and wear often.
