A mere fashion interest & vision soon developed into a reality in the world of styling for Melissa Barclay, a Los Angeles native. For her, fashion and style are a way of life; “elements that speak and live.”
With exquisite taste and elegance, Melissa has transformed trivial runway couture into stylish moments that make sense to everyday people, making her one of the most sought after young LA stylists. Celebrities, editors, and photographers have said she has the key: both a stylish eye and a keen knowledge of luxury.
“When I see runway collections, I’m inspired.” Styling was the way Melissa made her artistic side come to life by embodying her love for making other people feel good and look great.
To her defense, she isn’t just another “celebrity stylist” or “fashion diva.” As cliché as the word “image” is, she emphasizes its importance and its ability to help create personal style. Both media figures and every day women are able to portray a fashionably sophisticated mannerism after being styled by Mel B.
Her personal style is minimalistic yet cool. She gives an ample amount of attention to pieces that push the envelope and firmly believes that women can be comfortable & intrepid by doing the same. “It is important to realize that style/fashion isn’t about acquiring ‘things.’ It is about the appreciation for creativity, luxury, and delicious ambiguity.”
As you can see below, fashion is embedded in her genes. (Pictured: “Fashion Desighn” book from first grade).
