5 post-lockdown Summer trends

When you experience snow as late as May, it’s difficult to accept Summer is just “around the corner”. Yet, this seems to be what 2021 has for us, at least so far. The only good news is that lockdown is being lifted, the number of cases vs inoculations is promising enough to assume lockdowns are a thing of the past and travel abroad may be possible. This means that even though it feels a lot like Christmas in the UK, we can start planning a warm Summer elsewhere. After such a long time cocooned at home, we have an opportunity to look and feel our best in our own clothes and this week we bring you 5 trends for this Summer.

5 Tips to help you define your unique style

Rather than absorbing ephemeral trends, a personal unique style will reflect one’s true self. Just like we grow up, mature and evolve, so do our tastes. This why finding our unique style may not always be easy or quick. We are not naturally predisposed to accept change without challenge. At times it will be difficult to let go of “symbols” we associated with ourselves, but that in reality only reflected a period in our lives, but not our true self today. So, in this week’s blog I’ll share 5 tips to help you on your journey to defining your unique style. Continue reading 5 Tips to help you define your unique style

The unfiltered reality of social media

Can you imagine living through this pandemic without technology? Not being able to socialise face-to-face OR remotely? Happy we’re coming out of it and even happier that so many people used lockdown time to share their inspirational experiences across the different social media platforms. However, the unfiltered reality of what we see in social media looks much more like every day’s reality than the ethereal perfection it tries to convey. Continue reading The unfiltered reality of social media

5 tips on how to dress for the face2face post-lockdown

The long-awaited easing of lockdown restrictions is finally happening. For the first time it feels we have a way out of lockdown(s) and we’re soon meeting face2face again. A lot has changed in a dramatic way within a very short period of time: workplace/school and home became the same physical location, business calls with background noises of children and pets are now business-as-usual, loungewear (and for some PJ’s) are the new dress code. Continue reading 5 tips on how to dress for the face2face post-lockdown

10 items every woman should have in the wardrobe

Before lockdown, when I was still travelling up and down the country on a weekly basis, I was packing my outfits for the week on Sundays. More often than not I was washing the previous week’s outfits to wear the following week. Why? Well… a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear! Can you relate? Let’s talk about the 10 items every woman should have in the wardrobe. Continue reading 10 items every woman should have in the wardrobe

Behind the seams with Mauda

Following on the behind-the-scenes theme, this week I thought of sharing a snippet of Mauda’s behind the seams. It took careful consideration and planning to get the brand off the ground but the work didn’t stop there. It is a continuous process. Even the smallest of events will influence what we do and how we do it.  So, keep us a bit more company whilst we unravel the Mauda’s seams. Continue reading Behind the seams with Mauda

Lockdown Anniversary

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the first Covid-19 lockdown in the UK. One year of what feels like “life on hold”. Yet, has life really been on hold? Although it may not feel that way, the reality is that life is moving on. Every single day. In an unconventional way, but it is moving on. We are simply too distracted adapting to this new way of life to truly appreciate how much we’ve lived and achieved.

So, in this week’s blog let me take you through some of my learnings and key events from the past year. Continue reading Lockdown Anniversary

Let’s learn about disability

“Why do you advertise your brand as adaptive? I love the clothes and would want to buy them!” “I thought you were making adaptive, but all I see is normal clothing!” This is some of the feedback we received so far. To be perfectly honest we want Mauda to be a brand primarily focussed on adaptive design. However, we want non-disabled and people with disabilities alike to want to wear our clothes. So, in that respect we seem to be heading in the right direction. The thing is: these comments also reflect the existing misconception that accessible design and fashion are incompatible. Good opportunity to learn more about what it’s like living with a disability! Continue reading Let’s learn about disability
