Monika the Label

"A love affair between California cool and East London Grunge"

Monika The Label, the eponymous London based brand started by Monika Young, was born out of a love for California and a desire to make sustainable fashion for wild-hearted women who want to make a change. Inspired by all the best part of the seventies, we create collections designed to be centre stage in wardrobes for years to come. Once we’re in your wardrobe, we’re here to stay. Environmentally friendly fabrics, UK factories and low-carbon footprints are at the core of all the business’s decision-making. Most of our pieces are made from Regenesis Light Satin, an OEKTO TEX-certified material made from recycled plastic bottles. Recycling never looked so good! Occasionally we use silk satin and pure organic cotton jersey too. If we want printed designs we do it digitally, using Azo dye-free inks that are water-based and non-toxic.

So whether you’re in Victoria Park or Venice Beach, you can look badass but still feel good about the impact your clothes have on the environment.
