To celebrate art, fashion and creativity and to produce a hybrid environment that will colour the world with beautiful fashion.
MAYKA is a new womenswear fashion label which fuses art and Installations with fashion. Designed by print artist Maya Finkelstein Amrami, the UK based designer draws her inspiration from her experience working in the costume department of the Royal Opera House and the vibrant people and surroundings of London life.
Creating the prints: Maya said: "I start by drawing just black ink on paper and let my hand and brain go to these back of my mind places. Then I add the colours, usually bright. I love black, white and colour together. It’s striking, stunning and strong. The inspiration comes from what’s around me, especially people. The way they look, move, dress and create. London has been a main source of inspiration for me. It’s fantastic! I love the streets, the art, design and the vast possibilities to see everything."
Designed and manufactured entirely in the UK, MAYKA produces beautifully finished digitally printed silk chiffon, twill, georgette, jersey, Lycra and cotton.
In addition a collaboration with jewellery designer Nina Van Houten, consists of complimentary pieces such as statement necklaces, and jewellery including pendants, perspex and knitted necklaces, earrings and knitted chain belts.
MAYKA is supported by Collective, Camden Town Unlimited, sponsored by Mayor of London.
