London – Velvet Lace SecretJanuary 28th, 2010
Malikah says’ ” I’m not a fan of faux fur, I think it looks and feels tacky and although I’m a vegetarian, I love real fur, as long as it’s vintage… as long as it has been killed before I was born, then I will wear it.”
Malikah’s fashion icon and inspiration is the Marchesa Luisa Casati, – “she is my favourite muse of all time!.. She was like the Paris Hilton of her day, but a lot better!”
Malikah is wearing a fox fur stole, black tail coat, a black velvet leotard, and a black tulle skirt, which malikah has modified. The shoes are Topshop black lace wedges.
I love Malikah’s take on 1920’s chic, – it references the 20’s while looking contemporary, fresh and modern, all at the same time.
