Flattering, functional and sustainable. Once again, simple and elegant - the draping is masterful for which I am truly grateful.
I had been eyeing this dress for a while and decided to impulse buy it the other day. Now that I have it I'm upset I didn't buy it earlier! It's an incredible dress that not only feels comfortable, but also looks amazing. I get nothing but compliments every time I wear it. If you're looking for a comfortable dress that can be dressed up or down then look no further. This dress deserves all 5 stars!
Malaika is a fantastic zero waste designer & clothing maker. I have the Zero Vest Green, which is reversible, airy, and sharp! She has great sales and her eye for comfortable fashion is european yet city chic. I love it.. looking forward to adding more to my closet.
The Square Jacket can be worn multiple ways and I'm looking forward to having it on cooler days this fall and winter. Great for the office. A bit scratchy, so I'll wear long sleeves. I recommend it.
It is so glamorous but comfortable at the time that you can look fancy all day without need to get home to rest! So soft that you want to wear it all
Day. You can use it in different ways. It’s unique and beautiful
I couldn't decide what to order, but I wanted SOMETHING because I am so in love with the concept of this group of artisans. I ordered the Mystery Box, thinking there will be at least one thing I can wear.... and if I get the knitted cuff, I can always give it away. As it turns out, I *LOVE* the knitted cuff, and the earrings made from plastic bags are light, airy, and elegant. The clothing items (I got a skirt and a dress) are simple and elegant, versatile and sustainable. This is SUCH a great way to join the Malaika family. For a ridiculously low price, you can get an idea of the form, fit, and quality of the things available from Malaika, and they will leave you wanting more. Try one! You'll love the fun selection!
Mailaika helped me fit the right size in a gorgeous angular vest. I can't believe the craftsmanship and attention to detail on the two pieces I purchased. They’re so well done and fit and hang in the most flattering way.
The Hexagon T is the coolest and it makes a casual look go in a different trajectory! She is an amazing designer plus she’s helping our earth with sustainability.
I am a huge fan of her design concepts and the caring person that obviously is.
Organic Cotton Air Vent Mask The Dane
I Really love my Mask,it's very comfortable to wear,and it's easier to breathe. It's also a conversation starter.
I love my vest and how versatile it is. So edgey and fashion forward and the cobalt blue is divine. Had to wait a bit but once it came I put it
on ASAP - love her gorgeous styling and she made it in my size!!
Loved my legging! High quality and the shipping was fast.
I love it! Fits perfectly and great for this in between winter spring weather!! :)
One silhouette but so many wears!
I love that you can dress this up and dress it down, make it super chic and super casual. I’ve been able to wear it all seasons too!
In the summer with a pair of trainers or flip flops for a relaxed look or with a jean jacket & wedges for a chic brunch!
You can also wear it with leggings and boots! But if you want to get fancy, you can make it even more asymmetrical by rolling one sleeve up adding a belt and putting on your favorite pumps! Like I said, it’s one silhouette but I’ve been able to get loads of outfits from it! I purchased this in red but 100% will be getting the black too!
Fantastic shape, it falls beautifully on the body. I like to wear it with a print sleeveless top or with a mesh tight long sleeve.
I get compliments every time I wear it. The design is very cool and flattering and the vegan fur feels so good. I love it
