Myaemade was one of the biggest break out brands in 2018, all the hottest influencers, artist and cool girls were rocking these pieces all hand made by designer and brand owner Mia. 211 Girls had the pleasure to have a quick chat with her to find out more about the brand that Stefflondon and Jorja Smith can’t get enough of and what else she has in store for the future.
Where do you pull your influences from?
Everywhere mostly just thinking about things I want and haven’t seen, I like to try and create juxtapositions.
How do you want people to feel when wearing your designs?
Physically Comfortable mostly , a lot of amazing clothes are uncomfortable and I would never last long wearing them as much as I would like too And I want people to feel like they want to show off.
Who were your fashion icons growing up?
my older cousins , and no one in particular but just remember being conscious of fashion I used to get changed like 5 times so many outfits too wear.
What’s been your biggest brand highlight so far?
Probably just the love was all unexpected.
How are you coping with the quick success of your brand?
Just trying to get all business parts in order so I can do everything I want to do without getting caught up in minor problems that can catch you out.
What is the song or album that best embodies Myaemade?
That’s a very hard question, it would be my Spotify best of 2018 playlist there’s a lot of Nines and Donnel Jones.
What have you got in store for 2019?
Just growth, more ideas I don’t like to plan too far ahead you never know what’s coming, I’m open to anything.
What is the one quality you think a person needs to have to start up a successful business?
Self motivation, drive and you’ve gotta be able to sacrifice things you want for the benefit of the business in the beginning.
What’s your life motto?
I have so many but mostly, ignore minor things. Nothing really matters no one cares so just do what you want and be kind. Be careful where you put your energy.
