Shashika Dissanayake

Managing Director, Zie

I am Shashika Dissanayake, a passionate individual who embarked on a transformative journey from the world of marketing to becoming a successful businesswoman. With a Bachelor’s degree in Business Commerce and a Postgraduate Diploma in Travel & Tourism, I carved a unique path for myself. For a decade, I thrived in the dynamic corporate realm of travel, accumulating invaluable experiences that shaped my vision.

Driven by a steadfast ambition, I aspired to be a business owner before turning 30. That dream materialized six years ago when I established my brainchild, Zie. This brand isn’t just about fashion; it’s a platform for empowerment. Empowering low-income women to uplift themselves and others became the heart of my mission.

My journey took an exciting turn as I harnessed the power of e-commerce, crafting a robust online presence for Zie. With each click, my vision of empowering women resonated further, spreading the message of strength and unity.

Zie is created to uplift the life of low income women in Sri Lanka. Looking forward, my sights are set on owning two factories by the age of 35. My story is a testament to the transformative power of dreams, hard work, and the unwavering belief in the potential of every woman to rise and shine.
