Meet the Designer- Melanie Dizon

-Your name and name of your brand.

MELANIE DIZON

-Tell us a bit about your brand and your inspiration/story.

I started my company in spring 2001 first launching with handbags, here in NYC. And 5 years in the spring of 2006 expanded into shoes, which has done wonders for the collection and the brand. I’ve always been into accessories as far as I can remember, having grown up in LA, I was always collecting/buying vintage and reselling it, sometimes reconstructing as well. I’m pretty much self taught in what I do as I never went to school for this, so with that I’m most proud as there’s no better way to learn that actual hands on and learning from your own mistakes. I’m inspired by everything really, and when I design I keep my girlfriends in mind and what they would need/want in their wardrobes, as well as my own of course.

Fall carries a sort of Argentinian hunting lodge feel with a splash of bohemian rock.
