Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions, also known as Madam Malkin's Robes or simply Madam Malkin's, was a shop in North Side, Diagon Alley. Students get their Hogwarts school uniforms there, and wizards and witches can also purchase dress robes, travelling cloaks, and also, on very rare occasions, invisibility cloaks.
Harry Potter first visited the shop in 1991 to get his uniform robes for Hogwarts. Rubeus Hagrid, incapable of entering the shop due to his size and holding two large ice creams for each of them, told Harry to buy some robes. During his visit to the shop, Harry met Draco Malfoy for the first time.
In 1996, Harry and Malfoy met again in the shop, openly insulted each other and almost started a fight. Moments later, Draco refused to let Madam Malkin lift up the sleeve of his dress robes to hem it. Harry suspects this is because Draco has become a Death Eater and has been branded with the Dark Mark.
Behind the scenes
- Rumours! magazine advertised a mid-season sale up to 50% off selected lines and said that all robes are self-ironing and self-repairing.
- In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince the trio encountering the Malfoys in Madam Malkin's is left out, but the shop can be seen briefly in the background when the Death Eaters and Fenrir Greyback raid Ollivanders Wand Shop and kidnap Garrick Ollivander.
