Mayamiko Summer Party – 3rd of June!

Come and join Mayamiko – the label combining unique style, real-life stories, and exclusive pieces that redefine the face of modern fashion at their Summer Party on Wednesday 3rd June, at the iconic Protein Studios 2, Shoreditch, in the heart of London’s independent fashion district

There will be drinks and canapes, live music, a photographic exhibition and most importantly beautiful, ethically made fashion and accessories.

Meet the faces behind the brand, and find out more about who made the collections – their wonderful tailors, seamstresses and artisans in Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. Touch and feel their unique textiles, and enjoy the opportunity to puchase some of their exclusive pieces in our sample sale.

Socialise and network with guests from many likeminded brands, retailers and creative talents.

Discover Mayamiko Trust’s work to support disadvantaged community members with skills training and micro finance.

On the night, Mayamiko will be presenting a new range of Tee tops, fusing bold and plain prints. This introductory range offers a choice of bold African fabrics, subtle batik cottons or eternal plains, with a touch of organza. Each Tee is made sustainably and ethically in workshops in Malawi, where disadvantaged members of communities are trained, employed and supported with the work.
