about the maker

I’m Ali, a medical student living in the bustling capital of Aotearoa. Though I spend most of my time on the hospital floor or buried in a textbook, I make space to create. When I wear my pieces I am emblazoned to start conversations about gender equality, migrant rights, and climate justice.

Time and again, womxn are told that we must be sweetened to be effective but I’m not much of a believer in sugar-coating anything. My method is to be gentle but powerful; kind and intentional.

Womxnkind is reclaiming its voice. Together, we can bring a kind of change that is unapologetic, loud, and contagious. Step out & stand up.

Ten percent of all Dripped with Honey’s profits will go towards Shakti International, a non-profit organisation led by ethnic women for ethnic women of Asian, African, and Middle Eastern origin. Shakti fights for justice for women of colour, and supports them through the struggles of migration.

May wearing Dripped with Honey encourage you to embrace your voice. You do not have to dumb yourself down, or sweeten yourself. This world needs change and you can be one of the many people to bring it.

I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” -Audre Lorde
