Street Style: The Story Behind Our Clothes

Paola Masperi of Mayamiko

“For me it was all a bit of an experiment – my end game is to empower people and help create opportunities for a better life for them, but I also strongly believe that fashion offers a massive opportunity, and there is space to produce beautifully designed and cut pieces that are on trend and desirable by global audiences. I have big ambitions and I’d love to touch as many lives as possible in a positive, if tiny, way.”

Paola is the founder of Mayamiko, a diverse fashion label for women who love style and quality and knowing the story and people behind the label. All designs are cut and sewn in their workshop in Malawi.
