About Melanie Marie:
Born and raised in New York to a large family, Melanie applied to go off to college…to be a nurse! But she couldn't not stay there. She decided to follow her heart into a field she was internally drawn to….design. The more she designed accessories and handbags, the more it felt like the right thing for her to be doing.
The Melanie Marie Collection is inspired by many aspects of life. The line was designed with the fashionable, contemporary yet classy woman in mind. A Melanie Marie piece will bring out the inner beauty and fashionista in a woman. MM has high fashion products that will unleash a woman’s full potential and make them feel like they are exclusive by having a one of a kind original piece of fashion. Melanie Marie strives to become a successful company while pleasing our loyal customers.
