Cupid's Calling: Valentine's Day!

Gearing Up For Valentine's Day 

Celebrating Valentine's day with fireworks and a huge dinner? Or a late breakfast in bed, with as many movies as you can stand to watch before good ol' square eye syndrome kicks in, we've got some ideas for you guys... 

If candlelit dinners and heart confetti aren't your thing, why not head out into nature for something a little different? Guaranteed, there'll be some amazingly beautiful nature spots near you that you've never even heard of. If you time it right, you might even catch the sunset! So do some research and put together a little picnic basket. We're thinking prosecco, something gooey and chocolatey, maybe some stuffed focaccia

How about these coral culottes, 'Odette' for a laid-back Valentine's Day outfit idea? Dinner doesn't have to mean a dress - but you can certainly dress these up! Team with heels for understated charm. Or if dresses are your thing - the Carly Dress or Mary - Lace A-Line  Skater Dress is perfect for dinner dates

Valentine's Day is often synonymous with a lot of effort and expense. Chocolates and flowers to be ordered, dinners to book, events to shell out for. Sometimes the best gift to give your significant other is simple, straight from the heart like one of our handcrafted gifts or cards.

If you're opting for the breakfast in bed option, pour yourself a cup of this gorgeous tea from our Shop Unique section of Tea. Vanilla for sweetness and harmony, rhubarb for colour and a bold, sharp flavour. #relationship goals

However you're celebrating Valentine's Day this year, we hope you have a truly wonderful time with the love of your life (and your cat or a huge tub of Ben and Jerry's definitely counts)! Shake it up or play it cool, whatever you feel. Have a good one ladies and gents! 

Sincerely Madia & Matilda

Five Years in The Making - Madia & Matilda

Celebrating 5 Years of Madia & Matilda!

Isn't it incredible to look back and realise just how far you've come? As a business, we have accomplished a great deal through these years of development, including working or collaborating with many influential local businesses and an education team who are shaping the future of fashion and presenting in Empire Casino, St Martin's in the Fields and London Fashion Week. We feel ultimately #blessed for the fantastic opportunities we have had on our journey so far!

Below is a small selection of pictures from over the years. 

Our peerless pioneer Shalize Nicholas (above; ain't she gorgeous!) started Madia & Matilda with the goal of making a difference in fashion: contributing positively to a less wasteful world. We are grateful to have grown as much as we have over this past year!

Our ShopUnique section is made up of carefully selected likeminded businesses who craft their products using sustainable materials or upcycling wherever possible. The concept behind ShopUnique strictly adheres to our principles, and those of other small businesses which regard sustainability and ethics as important solutions to the widespread problem of excessive consumerism in the fashion industry. We make handcrafted and locally produced items the stars of our show.
We really look forward to what is to come and hope that you will be with us all the way!

A big thank you to all who have followed and supported us over the years! As it's our
5th birthday this month we thought we'd show our appreciation to you, our beautiful customers, by adding free Worldwide delivery for the rest of the month!
