Halloween party ideas 2015

With the majority of her formative years spent on the move, Mawi (daughter of well known Hmar Mizo litterateur Pu L.Keivom) has found herself continuously immersed and in transit between a vast number of diverse cultures, taking with her a small piece from each of them as she has moved on – artifacts, experiences and influences that remain with her until this day. Collecting vintage trinkets is a passion of Mawi’s and a continually growing repertoire of over a thousand pieces made for ample material for inspiration, experimentation and customization. No longer simply a hobby, the idea of playing around with jewellery became very real when Mawi launched her brand in 2003. Since the extremely successful collection of 2003, Mawi has not stood still. Described as having a life of its own, the Mawi brand continues to attract interest through it’s seasonal metamorphosis whilst managing to stay true to the designer’s signature. Transcending seasonal whims and appealing to those of all ages and tastes, Mawi has well and truly captured a niche in the fashion market for contemporary costume jewellery. Adorn London are delighted to feature Mawi – her jewellery and design integrity remain an inspiration to us.
