Accessory Designer Melissa Janae Brings Her Charm(s) to Wildfire: The Series

I’ve always had a love for accessorizing. I believe that accessories are the heartbeat of any outfit.
— Melissa Janae

Philadelphia native and accessory designer, Melissa Janae shares her designs at The Wildfire Series. The event, taking place April 30th, is aimed at providing a platform for emerging creatives and artists to showcase their designs and talents.

The self-described creative and free spirit started Glam Nation in 2012. Originally set to be a cosmetics brand, Glam Nation eventually transformed into an accessory line.

Much of Melissa's inspiration stems from vintage fashion, old Hollywood films to be exact. With the likes of Carmen and Casablanca, decorative and ornate styles are the foundation of her designs. “I would describe my overall style as BIG, eye catching, and controversial.”, states Melissa Janae.

In the future, Melissa envisions her Glam Nation pieces being worn on celebrities such as Solange, Janelle Monae, Lupita Nyong’o, Erykah Badu and Rihanna. In addition to opening a boutique, she also plans on adding more simpler pieces to her collection.

The 28 year old designer’s custom headpieces and necklaces can be purchased at Wildefire: The Series, as well as Etsy.
