AFROPUNK 2016 x MADE BY MALYIA JEWELRY- POWER TO THE PARTY-RECAP

Made by Malyia

We returned for Afropunk Brooklyn 2016 and this year was better than ever! I loved connecting with all the people who discovered our brand for the first time and the jewels who returned and remember us from last year. Leading up to Afropunk I was super nervous, even more than the first time I was selected from hundreds of applicants to be a vendor. This year my expectations were much higher because I wanted to improve from my freshman year and perfect my festival pop-up. 

The love and energy was overwhelming and my main focus was engaging with everyone that stopped by the booth. I enlisted my best friend and girlboss wedding and event planner Michelle to keep me as sane and organized like she does her brides on their big day. The most popular pieces were our "Commitment Issues" nose cuff, "Boundless" Choker, "Perpetual" wrap necklace and "Venus" Body chain. By the end of day 1 most of the top sellers were sold out. 

Afropunk is more than a festival it is a collective of individuals overflowing with creativity and self-love. The #BlackGirlMagic, #MelaninMagic, #CareFreeBlackGirl, #_____ add any collective self-love hashtag and chances are it's on full display and I'm here for all of it.  One of my favorite things to do is venturing away from the booth to check out all the dope looks. This year everyone came with their fashion A game. In my opinion the fashion at Afropunk rivals that of fashion week and lets be honest the majority of designers draw inspirations from street style and events like Afropunk. This year their was no shortage of inspiration. 

I missed most of the performers but had the chance to watch Ceelo and Ice Cube. They were amazing! Next year I'm posting "I'll be back in 20 minutes" sign so I can catch so more performances lol.

Thank you to everyone that stopped by to say hi and shop with us! Welcome to the Made by Malyia Jewelry tribe! See you next year!

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.
