Since then, more than 20 partnership agreements with illustrious names in fashion, design, music and celebrities were signed - Melissa is not just a shoe, it’s a celebration of design. The brand is constantly looking for ways to express new ideas, hence its collaborations with renowned creatives including: Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, Thierry Mugler, Jason Wu and Zaha Hadid, to name a few. Melissa is the playground where these artists and designers come to impart their artistic and creative vision within the constraints of a woman’s shoe.
