Zifa Awoudi, the founder and CEO of ZifasBoutique, is gearing up to release her company's new spring collection titled Couleur En Printemps. This new collection consists of unique and stylish African print handbagsstatement gold necklacesmud-cloth beddings, and mini bags.

ZifasBoutique is an African-inspired fashion accessory, and home décor brand based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and inspired by afro aesthetics from West Africa. The inspiration for the brand can be traced back to the founder’s upbringing in Togo West Africa, where she would help her mother and aunt sell fabrics during school breaks. This birthed a passion for Afro-Fusion fashion which would manifest decades later as ZifasBoutique — aptly named after the founder herself.

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

Author and U.S. Army chaplain James Darren Key highlights 40 lessons and stories about race, love, honor, and faith to inspire people during changing times in his new memoir A Long Way from Crenshaw: Lessons and Stories about Race, Love, Honor, and Faith for These Changing Times (published by WestBow Press).

With the purpose of being accessible to all, the author writes in a conversational style. Exploring how life can change, and not always positively, he demonstrates how the human spirit can overcome those circumstances.

Additionally, Key speaks candidly about growing up Black in California in the 1970s and 1980s. Wanting to empower others, the author examines his own weaknesses and fears.

Through this study, he hopes to help people:

• recognize failures and successes along their journey;
• approach race and diversity with sensitivity and courage;
• heal from an unhealthy relationship before starting a new one;
• face trials and controversy with unshakable faith.

You can order "A Long Way from Crenshaw" at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

The idea for ZifasBoutique was sparked in 2008 when Zifa began orientation as a sales associate at a well-known clothing retail store. It was not until the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, after being furloughed, did the vision for ZifasBoutique begin to come to life.

Using 12 years of sales management experience at a clothing retail store, the founder carried over the values of excellent service, people skills, and running a successful business into ZifasBoutique, which is a significant aspect of what makes it the success it is today. Luxury, quality, and culture are also at the core of the brand’s values.

ZifasBoutique offers 3 major collections, namely:

The Bedding Collection

This collection consists of duvet covers and blankets made from premium fabrics that are soft, breathable, and durable. These fabrics are made in a variety of colorful and vibrant prints and patterns, which illuminate the home, making them ideal for all seasons throughout the year.

The Accessories Collection

This is a collection of African print clutch bags, tote bags, beaded necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Every item is handmade with the finest materials and is versatile, which makes the Accessories Collection fit for any occasion.

The Kitchen Collection

Created to help people spruce up their homes, this collection includes print napkins, placemats, and table runners. This tableware can be used in diverse spaces in the home such as on coffee tables, dining room tables, TV tables, chests of drawers, mantles, and more.

ZifasBoutique aims to help customers invoke cultural pride and feelings of joy using vibrant African prints. Ankara fabric (also known as African Wax), and Bogolan (or Mud Cloth), are some of the high-quality fabrics that Zifa’s homeware and fashion items are made from.

Every single item is carefully handmade using ethically sourced fabric from West Africa by artisans in Togo, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Kenya.

ZifasBoutique ships internationally and anticipates making an imprint on the global fashion and homeware industries.
