Interviewed by The Success Today – A Digital Webzine.
Can you introduce yourself and your work to us?
I am a girl who has always believed in being independent and hence started working at the age of 15 by doing online marketing. I started with the export of an Islamic clothing range. Now I own my brand of clothing as well as luxury furniture known as ZR Luxury Homes, having a reputed name all over the Gulf.
What is the role of your family in your achievements?
I am solely responsible for my achievements and I had a solid reason to bring up and buy my son a good education and lifestyle as a single mother.
What is your ultimate aim in this profession? How have you created a new path in your profession?
I aim to make every product that a designer can think of, which led me to set up my manufacturing.
What was the one thing that first persuaded you to enter into this field of industry?
The idea of making Mughal art known worldwide and letting all royals have the modern version of the Mughal era in their luxury way is intriguing.
With such cut-throat competition in this industry, what is it that makes the services you offer exceptional?
We create our designs by having a team of interior and furniture designers make them as per the requirements and budget of the client, yet exclusively for them.
Your achievements in this industry are more than impressive. Would you like to share them with us today?
We have been one of the first to bring Italian techniques of the lost wax casting of brass to India and trained our labour to make it competitive in the Italian market.
We, being overseas, have given a competition to the Gulf designers and have done more than 30 projects for the royal families based in the Gulf in the past 2 years.
Does your work ever feel tedious to you? If so, how do you stay driven and motivated towards it?
It is always a challenge to make and export handcrafted, fragile items and large furniture overseas, but we always managed to make safe deliveries, making our clients happy. Client satisfaction is the key that keeps us moving forward with the new challenges we face.
What are your hobbies and specific interests other than your profession?
I love going karting, paragliding, and all kinds of adventures, and my best hobby is spending time with my kids as much as I can.
You have achieved so much in such a short period. Is there any specific advice you’d like to share with the new people entering this industry?
There are always new challenges no matter what industry it is, but you will never learn how to excel in the field without facing failure.
