Melimel is a New York based, contemporary line of cut and sew knit tops featuring original artwork by sole artist, designer and owner Melissa Santos. All artwork is originally done in a variety of media including oil paint, graphite, and etching. The artwork is then printed onto each garment using a unique printing process. All garments are proudly made in Brooklyn, New York

–I am an artist who studied fashion; so of course my Melimel line is the perfect blend of both worlds. The concept began in late 2010. I finally opened up my company in 2011. Since then I have been planning and working hard to turn these dreams into reality. I experienced some downfalls and road blocks along the way; but we learn from our mistakes. Now in 2013 Melimel is up and running!

This line represents me as a person. Everything I feel, the things in this world that intrigue me, and the way that I think are embodied throughout my line. The “Unforgettable Eye” which is the Melimel logo gives life to each garment. It is a constant reminder that there is a real person behind this line. There is so much thought and care put into every piece of art and into every garment. I have expensive taste and I don’t accept anything less than high quality; therefore, my customer isn’t going to get anything less from me!
