Malaika Haaning is a sustainable fashion designer and founder of Malaika New York.

“Malaika branded garments using a technique that minimizes waste. The apparel industry is one of the biggest waste-producing industries. Much of the excess materials created in the apparel industry end up in landfills. By implementing Zero Waste Patterns, we are able to strategically drape the fabric in such a way so little to no materials are wasted.”

Malaika is originally from Denmark. After working in logistics for a number of years in the U.S., she was ready for a career change.

To her surprise, she was admitted into Parsons in her late 20s. Upon graduation and with various internship experience, she founded Malaika.

This is her story.
