Melissa Del Bono's road to becoming a designer has been unconventional. After receiving a Bachelor's degree in Business from Oxford Brookes in 2001, Melissa worked within the editorial team at Harpers Bazaar before three years marketing experience in luxury brands such as Aspreys.
Starting out as simply a hobby in order to satisfy her own creative fulfillment, Melissa's creations quickly gained critical acclaim from the fashion industry appearing on the coveted pages of style bibles such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Elle. Melissa's inspiration is drawn from a pool of Anglo-Italian roots, international travel, and a passion for everyday life. These, combined with individual flair, an inbuilt sense of style and the determination to use only premium Italian leather, guarantees each bag offers quality, versatility and character. The simplicity of the bag is its own secret.
The woman who is both dynamic and timeless is behind Melissa Del Bono's Autumn Winter 10/11 collection.
