Meet Zawadi Bahati

Today we’d like to introduce you to Zawadi Bahati.

Zawadi, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I’m the oldest of 2 boys raised by a single mom. She’s a great mother that sacrificed everything for us. She worked day and night to provide a roof over our heads. Growing up was tough, sometimes we would go without heat, water, and/or lights way more frequently than others.

Went without a bed for a while, no food sometimes, roaches in the crib smh it was rough man. With struggles at home, I knew Jordans and other cool clothes and shoes were out of the picture. That’s what inspired me to come out with my clothing line called “From The Bottom”. I created something I felt represented me and my story and knew that it would connect with everyone that could relate.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It’s definitely been a lot of trial and error. Trying to find reliable manufacturers that are reasonable, trying to expand the business massively to a larger scale. Having a dependable team around that’s willing to build. It’s been challenging but all great things usually are

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I make high-quality luxury street apparel. I specialize in expressing the culture thru music & fashion for those from the bottom! I’m known for my brand and soulful music.

I’m most proud of my consistency & progress thru the years on my brand especially because it’s gotten me to a point where I’m actually in fashion shows and getting interviewed by Voyage lol so I’m pretty proud. I feel I go the extra mile with all my work and that’s what separates me

So maybe we end by discussing what matters most to you and why?
Right now what matters most to me is my son that’s coming. That’s all I’ve been focused on
