Simon says: Say Hello to Melodie

Director of Fashion, Simon Ungless will be giving us his two cents in his own series of blog posts titled “Simon Says” — and we all know when Simon says something we listen…and laugh…and sometimes cry…Enjoy!

It happens once in a lifetime – a girl like Melodie Monrose walks into a casting and lights up the room.


Wow. WOW. And triple WOW.

Melodie Monrose is 18 and from Martinique. She was discovered two months before New York Fashion Week and is signed to Wilhelmina in New York.

We had to have her in the show – so fresh, so gorgeous with a super cute personality and a French accent. What more could you ask for?

Gucci, Prada, Bottega, Marc Jacobs
, and Academy of Art University; not a bad first season – and Paris is yet to start. I predict Lanvin and YSL for sure.


Melodie in Gucci…

Au revoir (for now) Melodie. It was great having you visit — we’ll see you soon!
