ABOUT THE FOUNDER
South African Zakiyyah Smailovic is the Founder and Managing Director of House of ZS. Established in 2015, House of ZS began as a jewellery and accessory brand that’s grown to grace the pages of internationally renowned fashion magazines including Vogue, Glamour and Cosmopolitan, as well as to be worn by celebrities including the Kardashians and Gigi Hadid. Typified by delicate jewellery pieces adorned with glittering gems, House of ZS’s understated yet elegant style has fast grown a global fan base.
What began as a venture in jewellery design for Business and Marketing graduate Smailovic quickly evolved in entrepreneurship as House of ZS grew to become a global brand at dizzying speed. Along the way Smailovic has enjoyed accolades including being featured in Cosmopolitan’s ‘Power List of Businesswomen to Watch’ (2017), luxury lifestyle TV show ‘Top Billing’ as one of South Africa’s most dynamic designers, and being profiled by Forbes Women Africa (2017) for the incredible success of House of ZS in just three years.
Inspired by her travels around the world and her love of fashion, in 2017 Smailovic collaborated with the exclusive Nikki Beach resort in Turkey’s Bodrum to launch their first luxury lifestyle boutique, under the House of ZS name. The House of ZS boutique venture offers not just House of ZS products but also a host of luxury brands in swimwear, resortwear, accessories and eveningwear, for both men and women.
Above all, Smailovic’s eye for design, keen curatorial ability, entrepreneurial know-how and love for all things luxury have seen her passion blossom into a global brand well on track to become an international empire. Currently, Smailovic divides her time between South Africa and the Middle East.
