Red, White + TRUE Campaign! What is TRUE to you?

Made by Malyia

The last week has been a difficult one for me, my team and the world due to the recent deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the 5 police officers in Dallas,Texas. I wasn’t going to address this publicly but then I realized one of the reasons I became an entrepreneur was the freedom it provides. 

My goal as a black woman, creative and entrepreneur is to provide young people with representation and encouragement to chase their dreams. I volunteer frequently with young girls affected by homelessness and poverty. We discuss social issues that directly affect them and I know the importance of community in times of uncertainty and hurt. As a creative I use my platform to exemplify the change and representation often lacking in the fashion industry, so I couldn’t simply remain silent. I decided to pause all social media post and not release this blog to give myself time to reflect and figure out how I to best shine a positive light in all the darkness. This campaign is my attempt to create community and self reflection. 

I created the Red, White + True campaign which was originally to be released during the week of Fourth of July to highlight 4 other creative influencers including bloggers, stylist and actors that are breaking boundaries.

The project asks them to share what they hold true. What is TRUE to you? Don’t miss the opportunity to share and engage with those that mean the world to you. See below for the full photo campaign and the influencers thoughts on what they hold true. We want to hear from you share your thoughts with us in the comments. Sending love and light...

CEO, Founder of Made by Malyia and Model | Malyia McNaughton 

"What I hold true is love! Love of self, family, and others. I believe that once you truly love and except yourself nothing is impossible because you realize all your experiences helped to uniquely shape you. Love is powerful and can truly change lives. I also hold you true. My jewels, those who have supported Made by Malyia to become what it is today! " 

Owner of blog MarshBar’s Closet and Staff Writer for Fashion Bomb Daily| Marsha Badger 

“For me its God! He is the most constant, consistent entity in my life.”

Stylist| Daryle Tyson 

“FREEDOM. Freedom of speech. Freedom of expression. Freedom of choosing to be who I want to be despite what America makes young men of color out to be. The clothes I wear, the way I rock my hair…the music that inspires my creative flow.That is what’s true to me.”

Actor, Model,and Host| Ryan “Muufasa” Cross 

"Holds moments like this to be TRUE"

Stylist| Nyjerah Nicole

“What do I hold true?Family. Put them first, always.

Vogue.com "Best Street Style" x Afropunk Feature

Made by Malyia

Every girls dream is to be in Vogue Magazine. The recognition from this iconic staple in the industry can propel your career. I never in a million years imagined I would be featured for "The Best Street Style" on Vogue.com.

As I began setting up my table for Afropunk with my nerves at all time high I hear my friend Michelle's voice faintly say "Vogue is here and they want to take a photo of you". The senior fashion writer for Vogue.com Marjon Carlos and Ruben Ramos were at my table and wanted to take a photo of me!  I quickly introduced myself and headed over for the Polaroid shoot. 

I was shocked to discover not only was my photo selected for Vogue.com but they posted my image on Vogue Magazines official Instagram. The picture has since received over 50,000 likes and glowing comments.

My outfit paid tribute to African tribal attire, featured mixed Ankara prints and custom designed converse I embellished with gold studs. I was draped in my jewelry and a Ankara wax print fabric my sister designed into a bandeau. I'm wearing the Shavon midi skirt by Reuben Reuel of Demestiks New York. He has designed for Beyonce! Visit Demestiks New York HERE. My PR Manager/Digital strategist Sherod Lewis executed this designer collaboration and I couldn't be happier.

Dreams do come true no matter how far away they may seem! Dream big jewels and gems!

Thank you to the entire Vogue.com team and photographer Benjamin Rasmussen.

I wanted to share behind the scenes photos of this fairy tale once in a lifetime moment. See the full Vogue.com story here

#ShesFearless Feature-Woman VS Freedom

Made by Malyia

This week has been short of magical! Celebrating the 2 year anniversary of my company, and the announcement of my collaboration with Lionsgate's "The Divergent Series:Insurgent". This week I was also featured by the amazing Krystal Clayton of Woman Vs Freedom. Please see below excerpt from the interview and read the full feature HERE

Here's an excerpt from the feature

How do you face your fears?

I look my fear in the face and call it what is it. If I’m afraid to fail, I question who’s standards am I using to measure that failure. If something scares me I usually do that task first because the more I think about it the more I will talk myself out of it. 

Name one fear and/or setback that you’ve overcome.

One of my biggest fears was not being accepted into the fashion industry and being considered a failure. How do you all your life say that you are meant to do something but you aren’t validated by the industry you seek approval from. The way I overcame this was by staying true to who I am and not trying to conform. After I stopped seeking that stamp of approval that’s when it all changed for me. My brand was authentic and spoke to who I am.

Made by Malyia

Made by Malyia Jewelry is now an official licensee for "The Divergent Series: Insurgent" film. In partnership with Etsy and Lionsgate Entertainment, I have been selected to create a design inspired by the mega blockbuster hit. This partnership comes just in time for the home entertainment release of "Insurgent" later this month. Insurgent, is the sequel to adventure and Sci-fi film "Divergent." With over 60 million copies sold, #1 world wide opening and sales coming in at $516 million, I couldn't have asked for a better partner.

Of all the praying, planning and preparing I could have done, never in a million years did I see this one coming into fruition. When you walk by faith and allow God to order your steps, life is limitless! I will continue to remain humble for he is not done with me nor my brand, and there is much more to come from this collaboration.
