Have you met Melissa Antonious?  She’s the gorgeous blonde holding throne in the spa town of Cheltenham with her couture designs, so I can see why she chooses a Crown for her logo.

I met Melissa in London during London Fashion Week working on the makeup team for a private fashion show, and not only fell in love with her beautiful designs but with her bubbly personality and natural warmth.  She’s an absolute gem, and a very talented designer!

Melissa Antonious really is one of the UK’s most exciting up and coming designers, bringing exciting, eye-catching and exclusively bespoke pieces to a celebrity clientele, as well as women all over the country looking for items that will make heads turn. Based in The Cotswolds, Melissa started her self-named fashion brand from scratch from home two years ago, having noticed a gap in the market for stylish country wear that can be transformed from day to night in an instance.

Now established in an elegant design studio and show room, she’s taking inspiration from her traditional country heritage.  Melissa is experienced in, and loves to work with a diverse range of fabrics including leather, tweed, wax and suede, using equestrian influences throughout her collections.  Her garments are easily translated from the catwalk to the field and will become essentials in every woman’s wardrobe.

Focusing on creating new silhouettes that fit a women’s body like a glove and combining the use of luxury materials sourced exclusively in the UK, Melissa Antonious is the only brand on the market to offer a bespoke service specializing in country wear.

Melissa has gained a reputation for creating standout garments that have received wide press recognition, most recently doing styling for a photo shoot in Italian Vogue, as well as showcasing her collections at Cheltenham, Cardiff and most recently, Switzerland fashion week.  Being one of the best designers to offer a bespoke service in the area, Melissa’s skills ensure you will receive a beautiful, stylish and unique garment tailored for a fit than can’t be achieved anywhere else.

To give you some ideas we’ve taken one of Melissa’s gorgeous waistcoat designs and shown you how to wear it ‘4 Ways’ 

 

Melissa’s garments are available for ready-to-wear purchase and as a bespoke service at www.melissaantonious.com

Next in line for me working with Melissa?  We’re planning a photo shoot and a bespoke film for showcasing her latest collection together.  I’ll be helping create the makeup look that perfectly matches her elegant, country set style, based on vintage themes, classic shades and a strong red lip.

Watch this space – we’ll be bringing you more.
