LONDON, February 25, 2021 – MAYYAAGAYEVA, a London-based slow fashion brand, is excited to announce the launch of its Autumn/Winter 2021 collection, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability.

The collection introduces a line of genderless multipurpose and multi-size pieces that are true to the brand’s minimalist and sustainable design aesthetic. The 12-piece collection is offered in a muted colour palette and plays on the juxtaposition of fitted and oversized tailoring. Trousers and coats were made from wool and stretch mesh, while dresses, blouses, and various other pieces were created with dead-stock and recycled materials.

MAYYAAGAYEVA is committed to creating multifunctional garments that can be reused on different occasions, and the Autumn/Winter 2021 collection is no different. All items were designed with intricate string detailing that not only adds to the overall design aesthetic, but intentionally and thoughtfully allows users to adjust the size and the length of each garment.

The aim? To provide alternatives to the current fast-fashion mentality and to raise the standards in the fashion industry regarding sustainability and ethical manufacturing.

“Nothing is more important to me than to minimize our environmental impact as a brand and to design collections that anyone can feel good in,” said creative director Mayya Agayeva. “I’m always challenging myself to create more sustainable and ethical collections and I’m glad to continue that mission with our Autumn/Winter 2021 collection.”

Mayya Agayeva is a recent graduate of the MA Menswear at the Royal College of Art in London. She launched her brand in July 2020 with the objective to create sustainable and genderless designs that challenge the current fast-fashion mentality.

Earlier this week, MAYYAAGAYEVA showcased at London Fashion Week Designer Platform for the second season in a row. The Autumn/Winter 2021 collection is now available for preview. It was shot by photographer Szilard Orban, styled by Jacinta Apelt, and modelled by Amar and Riyam.


MAYYAAGAYEVA is a London-based slow fashion brand that embraces a genderless and sustainable design approach. Launched in 2020 by menswear designer Mayya Agayeva, a recent graduate of the MA Menswear at the Royal College of Art, the brand was founded on the notion that the only sustainable garments are multifunctional garments that can be reused on different occasions. Therefore, every garment is created with attention to detail and is designed for emotional and physical needs.

Crowdfunding for growth to accommodate the future of sustainable travel

Market demands for a focus on more responsible travel are being met by working with local charities and planting trees.

UK company YellowWood Adventures Limited is ideally positioned for the bounce-back in international travel; specialising in small group adventures in remote locations including Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia & Ladakh.

Ahead of the curve in responsible practices, YellowWood partners with local charities to support the communities they travel through, including Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, Food Blessed in Lebanon and 17,000 Ft Foundation in Ladakh, Northern India.

They also plant 15 trees for everyone who takes an international flight to one of their adventures via partner charity

Over half (55%) of global travellers report being more determined to make sustainable travel choices than they were a year ago, but barriers include a lack of knowledge and available or appealing options when trying to put this into practice.” –’s 2019 sustainable travel report

Travellers are seeing how the slowdown of human travel due to the impact of the coronavirus has had an enormous positive effect on the environment, and this is also changing perceptions of how people wish to travel in the future.

YellowWood already has this infrastructure in place, and is currently crowdfunding to expand their team, to be able to provide more clients the type of sustainable, experiential travel they are looking for. They have already reached £38,000 with five weeks still remaining of the campaign.

UK travel magazine Wanderlust received 2,914 responses to their May 2020 travel survey, with the following two very encouraging statistics from their findings: 1) Over 60% of their travellers hope to travel this year & 2) Over 60% of travellers are looking to book their 2021 adventures this year.

The sustainable nature of YellowWood tours themselves; small groups creating a lower negative impact in off the beaten track destinations away from crowds, with local income generation, will be increasingly popular in post-covid tourism.
