Unleash Your Denim Designing Passion with Maurice Malone: Partnering with Making A Brand ™ for a real master class in creation and innovation

Imagine being a 19-year-old with big dreams, but limited resources and opportunities. Maurice Malone knows that feeling all too well. At that young age, he described himself as a “19-year-old middle-class jobless teenager,” yet he defied all odds to create a brand that would revolutionize the fashion industry. Today, Maurice is one of the world’s most influential black fashion and denim designer brand owners, having been in business for four decades.

Starting with nothing but sheer determination, Maurice utilized every tool and trick in his arsenal to craft breathtaking denim garments. Picture this: he worked tirelessly in his mother’s basement, using a pool table as his cutting table and old sewing equipment to bring his vibrant designs to life. But what truly sets Maurice apart is his unwavering belief in his dream. Despite being jobless and lacking a concrete plan, he relentlessly pursued his passion for clothing and refused to give up.

“The dream of mass-producing jeans and other clothing was still just a dream for me, but I pursued it like it was reality.”

And reality it became. Maurice transformed his dream into a tangible reality, creating fashion companies and brands that have left an indelible mark on the industry, especially within the denim market. Every success he has achieved has been hard-earned, propelling his brands to the forefront as some of the most influential denim specialists in the market. But the impact doesn’t stop there. Maurice’s clothing has graced the bodies of legends—icons like Biggie, Tupac, and Aaliyah. Their choice to wear his creations speaks volumes about the cultural significance and reach of his brand. Maurice has become an emblem of inspiration for aspiring Black designers, proving to them and the world that a Black man can wield immense influence in the realm of fashion.
