Look Book Jewelry Collaborators

Flux is a collection that embraces wearability, versatility, and flexibility. While the items pair well together, they are also intended to be mixed and matched within the wearer's wardrobe and act as the perfect backdrop for accessories. I styled the look book with this in mind, and was thrilled to team with up two local jewelers, Katie Dean Jewelry and Emma Holland Denvir. Katie's dainty gold necklaces and hand pieces in combination with Emma's chunky, wood bracelets and rings were the perfect finishing touches to the looks, and really embraced the easy-to-wear nature of Flux. You can find links to their websites below, and view the collection here.

Announcing Melissa Fleis x Hotel Zephyr SF

I'm so excited to finally announce why I have been making so many trips back and forth to San Francisco this year! 

One of my biggest projects yet to date - designing uniforms for the entire hotel staff at the new boutique hotel in Fisherman's Wharf, Hotel Zephyr. There's so much incredible design in this one hotel, and I'm incredibly honored to be a part of it.

For more information, click here. And be sure to follow on Instagram for more images of the uniform design!
