About Me
"Designer Melissa Velia began designing and sewing her Barbie dolls new wardrobes at the young age of 7. "My mother taught me to sew with a needle, some thread and tons of fabric scraps." Melissa Velia recalls. It was then, that her life-long passion for fashion and the industry began. She went on to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM). It was during that time that she began her career in the fashion industry, working for BCBG in their corporate showroom. Later, Melissa went onto worked for several well-known brands and eventually designed for an LA-based clothing company, where her designs were worn by celebrities such as Tyra Banks, Hilary Duff, Faith Evans and Kimora Lee Simmons. In 2010, after 9 years in the fashion industry, Melissa Velia was ready to branch out on her own and established her own clothing label.

Today, she continues to evolve in the art of fashion, not only with her company and clothing line, but also as a wardrobe stylist in her spare time. In the near future, Melissa plans to expand her clothing line, establish a foundation, write a book, and so much more."
