Mali's love of exotic far-away clothing became rooted when she was a little girl from a very creative family. Her Aunt was a Missionary who sent her elaborate silk and embroidered clothing while working in India. Her love of color and style was expressed through visual arts, clothing and home decor and design. While studying at university she also found a love for production through modeling, photography and fashion shows and also hosting her own radio shows and working in TV and movies.
When she moved to Miami digital printing was hot in the fashion world and Mali was captivated by the exotic prints on floaty textiles, adorned with sparkling embellishments. You could say it was love at first sight when she met resort wear for the first time in the form of an emerald green snake print kaftan with crystal embellishments. From that day on she knew that she had to share these beautiful clothes so that ALL women could feel like she did when she wore them, like a Goddess.
Mali's dream came true in 2013 when she opened LUXE ISLE with eclectic collections of resort and bohemian pieces that would delight the heart and mind of any gypsy soul. Taking a trip or have a special event coming up? Let Mali pick out a glamorous outfit that's simply perfect for your shape and style. She revels in the "picking process" to help determine what colors, cuts & styles work best for you, your personality and your lifestyle/event.
Mali takes her sparkling caftan caravan to many wellness, art, fashion & fun charitable events around South Florida; Miami Swim Week, Miami Fashion Week, Miami International Regatta, Art Basel, Wynwood Life, Cushman School Gala Fundraiser, WellFest, MindBody Expo and Fashion Happy Hour.
You can find her collection at Myra & Company Spa, Miami, FL, The Joy West Collection in Nantucket & Aspen, USA, J’ADORE SXM, St Martin, Shoptopia in Quito, Equador and Mangini Studio in Lima, Peru.
