Melissa Eva spent her childhood in Los Angeles where she grew up observing the fashion-forward trends of sunny California. She was first introduced to fashion by her mother, who was the fashion assistant to a couture dress designer sought after by glamorous socialites and celebrities during the 80s. Her mother passed this family tradition on to her by teaching Melissa how to embroider at an early age. Melissa quickly developed a passion for design and began to make clothes for her Barbie dolls with the remnants of fabrics, French lace and tulle that her mother would bring home.
Several years later, Melissa began teaching herself how to make patterns from a 1960s Singer pattern book that was passed down to her by her Honduran grandmother. Before Melissa knew it, she had fallen in love with fashion.

She knows that today's girls are constantly on the go, so she designed her bags to hold everything a girl could possibly need for day or night. Melissa is constantly at the drawing board, brainstorming new designs that will reflect each season's trends while staying true to her signature look. The distinctive details maker her handbags stand apart from the crowd. Her designs have incredible versatility and they can be dressed up or worn casually.
