"This is almost like a journey of coming full circle. This is very close to my heart. This is my gift to you, a capsule collection for the working woman who also likes to have a bit of fun.
"Depending on where you work, you can find something for the office and also something for a dinner or a cocktail after hence the structured looks and cuts with a few flowy weekend dresses," she enthusiastically stated.
She also named the clothing line ZaRa out of the love for her twin daughters.
"This is the ZaRa Collection! Named after my twin daughters- Zawadi and Raha as a homage to the gift they will forever be to my life and an example to them that we can make our own," she proclaimed.
