“We need to show them that Afghan craft has worth” – Pippa Small
My extremely multi talented friend Belquis Zhair is the granddaughter of the last King of Afghanistan Mohammed Zahir Shah, who teamed up with Canadian born designer Pippa Small in a collection known as “Seeds Of Life” which is unquestionably dazzlingly and made its debut in Pippa Small’s Brentwood store on Thursday, November 3.
Both the dynamic, talented women have a love for Afghanistan. It is in Kabul where for the last ten years Small has trained women bringing their sketches to life, it is also where one could easily be killed just for going to work, yet both Pippa and Belquis are committed to make the project in Kabul work where the environment has deteriorated since the allied troops pulled out in 2014.
Here is a look at some of the collection and help these great talented women plant the “Seeds of Life”.
