Slow Fashion designed on the South Coast of NSW - Sustainable clothing


our story

Malia the Label’s story began when a pandemic struck the world by surprise in 2020. In the midst of uncertainty, ‘stay at home’ orders and a lot more spare time, Malia The Label was founded by fashion student, Ally Thomas. 

On the South Coast of NSW, Ally began sewing from her bedroom, creating a ‘handmade to order’ collection of designer pieces. She had a vision for a brand that isn't based off fast-fleeting fashion trends, but instead pays more attention to detail & consciously produces garments with the planet, people and community in mind. 

With a focus on sustainability, Malia has consciously evolved into an emerging designer brand that is ethically produced by our Balinese artisans. As a designer, Ally focuses on creating timeless staples and statement pieces made from natural & recycled fabrics in small-batch quantities.
