Look into the ZAAF Pop Up Shop

On October 9th, 2015, Dallas got graced by the presence of ZAAF Collection that came all the way from Addis Abba, Ethiopia. Founder and Creative Director  Abai Schulze came to style and show off her collection and I could definitely say that  everyone who laid eyes on ZAAF Collection fell in love! Many came from all over to take a peak at the collection and there were great vendors there too! People were able to be dazzled by the opal jewelry of The Opal Trove. The Opal Trove which is a Houston Based Jewelers who create beautiful ethiopian opal jewelry. Dolly Girma & Nebeyu Mekonnen are the founders and dealers  of The Opal Trove.  All the guest were able to shop, mingle and snack on some delicious delights from Bake 7 Treats! Mesker Bekele handcrafted treats that were so delightful and tasty!

Here is a look into the great night we had meeting and mingling with ZAAF Collection.
