Manimekala pieces have been worn by celebrities such as Brooke Candy and Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon, and featured in publications such as Garage Magazine. In its first season, Manimekala was chosen to be stocked at the new Showcase: Next Big Thing concept store on Regents Street, central London, UK.
