Throughout the night Law mingled with other emerging Black designers, brought to the Met Gala by Lewis Hamilton, who purchased a table at the event to give these talented designers a well-deserved seat at the table.
Malyia McNaughton is one of six designers in the NDC’s Emerging Designers Diamond Initiative in partnership with Lorraine Schwartz. The initiative sets out to create a more equitable future for the jewelry industry by helping to level the playing field for emerging BIPOC design talent.
The NDC approached Ms. McNaughton separate to her participation in EDDI and commissioned her to design an 11 piece diamond jewelry collection specifically for the NDC’s global advertising campaign starring Ana de Armas, to be sold direct-to-consumer on Malyia’s website as well as in-store through retail partners of the NDC nationwide.
We were thrilled that Law Roach chose to wear Malyia McNaughton’s Open Signet Ring and Embrace Link Bracelet from the collection for an occasion as grand as the Met Gala.
