Zainab Phillips (Design Collaborator/Seamstress) Owner of HotMomma Designz, Zainab Phillips is a native Nigerian who moved to Minnesota in 1983. A graduate of Coolidge HS, she went on to obtain her BA in Business Administration from the University of Minnesota. Afterwards, she relocated to Washington, DC where she established her own brand, HotMomma Designz -- a clothing design company that delivers elegant, trendy, sophisticated wardrobes for both men and women. With her complex elaborative and very detailed garments, her clients feel more confident, providential, and alluring. HotMomma Designz is chosen over retail and other clothing design companies because there are no cookie-cutter-like outfits; each outfit, each piece of clothing is carefully crafted with pride and competence that our consumers come to expect. To that extent, Zainab has consistently found a welcoming outlet for her designs -- from Drag shows, Fashion Shows, design collaborations as well as Miss Capital Pride Pageant where she created a gown for Miss Vietnam (now Queen). As a result, Zainab also became her personal stylist for special guest appearances & galas. This formidable artist was chosen Photo of the Month for Washington, DC Raw Artist and nominated as Emerging Designer for DC Fashion Week. She also has made a showing at ASC Cycle 4 during New York Fashion Week and in 2017, she successfully promoted & introduced her Men’s line, "Fit for A King," to the world in a high-end fashion show in NYC.
