Hi there. Somehow it’s the middle of February, there are Easter Eggs on the shelves and it feels like I should already be gearing down for winter. Even though the shopfronts are telling us it’s knitwear season IT’S NOT! Remember last year when I promised to do a better job of showcasing local designers? Well, a promise is a promise. Meet Mala Me.
I met Sarah, the needle behind Mala Me (what feels like) a million years ago when I shot some pictures for Living Yoga her studio based in Craighall. Since then she’s added designer to her achievements. For now, Mala Me has a really breezy range of jumpsuits, dresses and kimonos, all of which are made from the most beautiful Indian Sari silk that Sarah discovered on her travels. I shot the lovely Sheena Bagshawe in two different looks from the range towards the end of last year, it’s definitely worth checking out her post for a different take on Mala Me.
Jumpsuits are my go-to for most formal events and this jumpsuit has become a firm favourite of mine over the past couple months, I get to dress up without really having to wear a full-on ball gown. I’ve worn my jumpsuit to a couple of events AND on our Bali holiday in January and it fitted perfectly into both settings!
