Amanda, an ex-fashion buyer met Kirstine, a former Danish fashion model with a sales background, in London in 2007. With a mutual love of travel and fashion the friends now run Star Mela from their light filled west London studio. Their continued mission is to create a collection of breezy bohemian-inspired summertime luxe essentials that celebrate warm weather dressing at affordable price points.

Inquisitive travelers, Amanda and Kirstine journey to far flung places to seek out inspiration in every corner of the globe. Amanda and Kirstine channel the wanderlust of their globetrotting design team to ensure the collections remain authentic to their travel and fashion philosophy, which is to create easy-to-wear pieces that can be thrown in a suitcase at a moments notice and will look great wherever you are.
