"Most of the page was devoted to an advertisement for Madame Malkin's Robes for All Occations, which was apparently having a sale."
— Description of page in the Daily Prophet

Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions, also known as Madam Malkin's Robes[3] or simply Madam Malkin's, was a shop in North Side, Diagon Alley. Students got their Hogwarts school uniforms there, and wizards and witches could also purchase dress robes, travelling cloaks, and also, on very rare occasions, invisibility cloaks.[2]



Harry Potter first visited the shop in 1991 after Rubeus Hagrid told him to get his uniform robes for Hogwarts. Hagrid was incapable of entering the shop due to his size so after recovering from sickness in the Gringotts Mine Carts, he bought two large ice creams for each of them. During his visit to the shop, Harry met Draco Malfoy for the first time.[2]

During the 1992 Christmas holidays, Madam Malkin's was closed with a small notice on the door, which read "We are closed due to daylight robery - back at seven o'cloak" (An obvious pun on "robbery" and "clock").[4]

Due to growing several more inches, Harry returned to Madam Malkin's to buy new uniform robes in 1993.[5]

In 1995, Hermione, Harry, and Ron were reading the Daily Prophet, where it was mentioned that they were having a sale.[6]

In 1996, Harry and Malfoy met again in the shop, openly insulted each other and almost started a fight. Madam Malkin was shocked when Draco openly called Hermione a Mudblood. Moments later, Draco refused to let Madam Malkin lift up the sleeve of his dress robes to hem it. Harry suspected this was because Draco had recently become a Death Eater and had been branded with the Dark Mark. Draco and his mother then left the shop, the latter commenting disdainfully that she would not return now that she knew the shop served "scum", and went to shop at Twilfitt and Tattings, leaving Madam Malkin highly insulted.[7]
