Year Review: Jewels Thank you for ROCKING with us in 2016!

Made by Malyia

DSC03183.JPG

Jewels I can't thank you enough for making 2016 the best one yet. This year was truly a journey and marked my year anniversary as an entrepreneur. One of my goals when I started Made by Malyia was to be able to bring everyone along on this journey as I grew the brand. None of this would be possible without your consistent support so I wanted to review the year and let you know what's next for the brand. 

I started off the year with a modeling contract that was made possible because of my appearance at Afropunk a few months earlier. I released a new collection and was featured by several blogs. 

In June my jewelry as well as myself was featured in the Colored Girl Campaign. The campaign was featured by Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Instyle, EssenceYahoo Beauty and many more

I was the natural hair model on the Today Show Summer Hair styles segment in August that went viral, the segment didn't go as planned, receiving over 10 million views. At first I didn't want the segment to overshadow the progress I made with the brand. When people started to leave comments asking where they could purchase the jewelry I had on the show, which of course was the full Made by Malyia collection, I knew my hard work wouldn't go unrecognized.

I returned to Afropunk in Brooklyn for the second consecutive year as vendor. I received more overwhelming love and support.

What's Next for the brand? 

I kick of the year as Keynote speaker in Washington DC. at the Forward Conference January 6-8 2017, where I will be sharing my journey and how to live your best life. I will be hosting the Curls on the Block Launch party in Denver, Colorado January 28, 2017.  

I will be releasing a new campaign and much more. 

Jewels, Thank you for rocking with us. Here's to making 2017 even better. 

 

 

ESSENCE STREET STYLE BLOCK PARTY x MADAM CJ WALKER BEAUTY

Made by Malyia

This years NYFW was jammed packed with events but one event I couldn't miss is the Essence Street Style Block Party. The official beauty sponsor was Madame CJ Walker and I had the pleasure of partnering with them and I even received a mini makeover session by one of their stylist. 

I love the brand and the products are great. Sold exclusively at Sephora the pastel color coded and modern packaging with labels make an effort to prove the products work for all hair textures.

Check out the pictures I snapped after getting my mane tamed.

#NYFW-My New York Fashion Week Model Debut x M Diggs Collection

Made by Malyia

As many of you know a few months after leaving my corporate buying position I was signed as a model with Bicoastal Management. This New York Fashion Week I made my modeling debut in my first fashion show for designer M Diggs Spring/Summer 17 presentation. I have been to NYFW shows in the past but usually I’m working behind the scenes or viewing the collection as a guest. This was a totally new experience for me but I loved every minute of it! See you guys next NYFW! 

I loved the entire collection! Check out the photos below! Visit their collection HERE ! Plus the Essence Magazine Feature HERE, MarshBar's Closet Feature HERE
