Melanie Giokaris, a distinguished blend of stylist, designer and entrepreneur. At just 26 years of age, Melanie has worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years and is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. With an extensive entrepreneurial and corporate background in business, marketing and merchandising, Melanie has created a business around her personal values: work with passion and entrepreneurial determination all while staying true to yourself.

From a young age, she learned the importance of adding value to others by following her passions. Over time, she saw that she could have an even bigger impact if she used her network and contacts to build a diverse community of people with like-minded goals and aspirations to help others thrive. So, she founded MeLD Boutique with the intention of providing a sustainable upcycling solution for the fashion industry. She is interested in educating the public about the great importance and impact of the conscious consumer movement. The latter goal — to change the landscape of the fashion industry by leading by example.
