Despite the delay on this post due to personal reasons, I’m extremely pleased to feature Melissa Araujo in the next couple of blog post!
Melissa Araujo is a Vancouver based minimal designer, she expresses herself through her fashion label melissa araujo. She displays an ability to combine structure and fluidity; and a liner quality that is clean, minimal and modern. Melissa consider the human body as an outlet. She is most inspired about architecture and geometric shapes. Melissa loves the thought that goes into creating a building – the angles, details and structures which translates into her clothing. She adds geometric shapes using linear lines and beautiful curves. Those inspirations were used for both her collection Slate and Linear.

Minimalism has stood the test of time and trend throughout fashion. I don’t consider my style as minimalist, but I do like to emulate the minimal look and make it my own. I’m wearing the Upside Down shawl from melissa araujo Slate collection. It can be worn two different ways, each version of this versatile piece is very different from the other. All the lines and details goes where it needs to go, whatever way you choose to wear it. Not only can you wear it two-ways, a lot of different looks can be created with the Upside down shawl; pair of jeans with basic top, prints and colours, LBD.., the choices are endless! This is truly a well thought out piece, I just can’t image how much time it took to draft and construct it, the photos do no justice to the details and lines.
