Staff Spotlight: Makeda, Hanky Panky's Senior Designer

Makeda, Senior Designer at Hanky Panky

 This vivacious Londoner brings creativity and a bit of sass to the Hanky Panky design team! With her varying taste in music and fashion, she finds that being true to oneself and not relying on others for your happiness are crucial parts of what has made her who she is today!

We had a chance to chat with Makeda about style, music and her “can’t live without” Hanky Panky pieces…

1. Your style in 3 words: Quirky, Trendy, Fun

2. Want, Need, Can’t Live Without Styles: Almost anything Silky Skin, Low Rise Thongs, and some Animal Prints!

3. Favorite Song: I have eclectic taste, so it varies all the time.
A few of my favorites:

“All Around” by Israel Houghton
“He Wants It” by Forever Jones
“Tonight” by John Legend

4.  Best advice you’ve ever received: “Learn to stand on your own two feet and be an individual!”

5. Biggest misconception about you: I am quite particular. I know what I like and I am my own person, but I’m not the most trusting. So, sometimes people may perceive that as as me being stand-offish, but I’m not that way when you get to know me! 

6. Tell us something we don’t know about you: I am very down-to-earth, fun, passionate, open, and extremely caring!

7. Worst advice you’ve ever received:“Fake it until you make it”—doesn’t that just make you a fraud?

8. Fun fact:Your foot is as big as the length from your elbow to your wrist! No one said the fun fact had to be about me! ;)

About Hanky Panky

In 1977, designer Gale Epstein created a hand-made lingerie set for her friend, Lida Orzeck, crafted out of embroidered handkerchiefs. The original designs were the inspiration for the company name, Hanky Panky. Blending traditional with modern glam looks, Hanky Panky is a fashion favorite of countless celebrities.
