Designer: Mal K. Maduka
Heavily inspired by street-style, Mal, born in Nigeria, drew inspiration from Canadian brand Kastor&Pollux and brought her brand MKO to life with a focus on the basics – form, shape and texture.
“The designers were so young yet they had a thriving business and were very self aware about their products. I thought if they could do it and be successful, why couldn’t I? They impressed on me the desire to work hard for what I want.”
Her most recent collection is based around metamorphosis, evident from the thick, full-face veils and cocoon-like textures, creeping up the neck and falling away below the waist.
This, merged with her use of innovative and unique fabrics, and abstraction from the practicality to the artfulness of fashion, show her clear aesthetic and vision. We’re glad to welcome her to the Fox Feet Summer Runway line-up.
