Fashion Design/Clothing label working in River Studios
About Yollk – Molly Dockray and Kiri Malarski
Yollk is an emerging plus size women’s wear label by Molly Dockray and Kiri Malarski. We believe that your size should not dictate your sense of style. At Yollk, we focus on quality design and fabrication for women, inspiring them to look and feel their best. Through our work we are making a personal contribution based on our passion of bringing quality clothing to curvy women. Challenging negative social media influences around bigger women, we create high fashion garments to make this client group visible. We produce confidence through clothing for women whose size is not represented in the mainstream market. Our aim is to include, not exclude.
What attracted you to the space and what makes your studio suitable for your practice?
As we both live on opposite sides of the city, Footscray/Kensington was a good middle ground for us. It is also an area full of makers and suppliers, giving us a good base to work from. We were particularly interested in the fact that the space was filled with multiple studios, allowing us to bounce off and collaborate with other makers/artists and creatives in the same warehouse space.
