An Inside Look at Melanie Marie

by Melissa Alam
A preview of local accessory and bag designer, Melanie Marie.


Melanie Marie is here to stay. Starting her designs in 2010, Melanie began creating her line of fashion accessories as a side business while studying nursing in college. Knowing that she had more to offer to the fashion and jewelry industry, Melanie became a full-time "accessory-addict" and, recently, the creator of a couture line of handbags. Her hard work has been paying off as Melanie has been featured in magazines such as Essence, Ebony, Latina, as well as blogs around the internet. Her jewelry pieces have even been worn by celebrities and icons such as Dondria, Tocarra, Adrienne Bailon, Angela Simmons and more.

With celebrity inspirations such as Solange, Rachel Zoe and June Ambrose, Melanie creates her jewelry off of all the current trends seen around the world. With her "chic, edgy and classy" pieces exclusive to her line only, buyers can even purchase custom-designed items stylized by Melanie herself. Asked where she sees her collection going in the next five years, one answer was evident: "Shoes." Currently located in the heart of Philadelphia, we can't be more excited for Melanie's future plans as she continues to create gorgeous accessories for the everyday fashionista!

Melanie's collection is currently located at her online store and in store at Greek & Life Boutique in North Philly and DLUX in Englewood, NJ. For more information, follow Melanie @MelRWhite, like her Facebook page here, or email her personally at
