You probably know Melody Ehsani without even knowing her.  Her ubiquitous line of accessories caters to the bold, sexy, fierce and fearless women, so it’s no wonder that you can find her pieces all over the scene, from Rhianna, to Erykah Badu, to Keri Hilson.  Yes, those rings that turned you on in Miss Keri’s “Turnin’ Me On” video were done by Melody, who is one of the artist’s favorite designers.  She’s quickly becoming the favorite of many, in and out of the limelight.  Actually, Melody’s creative uses of bright plastics, shiny mirrors, chunky chains, and wild designs deserve their own time to shine!  If that’s not enough, this powerhouse designer started off by creating a bad-ass line of ladies shoes, and she still keeps it coming.  Melody Ehsani’s got it locked.

Miss Melody Ehsani, above, caters to the bold, sexy, fierce and fearless women.

Luckily, M.I.S.S. got it locked for you, too, because Melody was kind enough to give us a peep of her newest accessories line, Final Frontier, in her futuristically fresh lookbook.  This line just dropped yesterday, and it will blow you away with guns, chains, and Swarovski crystals, oh my!

Although her looks go for the bold, her approach to life and her line is quite humbling, creating a divine balance between art and artist.  Melody taps into her strength as a woman to push boundaries and go for the unconventional, ultimately unleashing the same powers in those that don her products.

Now that you know a ‘lil bit more about this inspiring entrepreneur, check what she has to say about her field of work in the M.I.S.S. Q&A:

M.I.S.S.: What woman, besides your mom or grandmother, do you find inspirational?

Any woman who has had to go up against inertia to follow her calling and create her position in this world.

M.I.S.S:  How did you get your start?

I dropped out of law school and had never designed a single thing…on purpose at least. Bought a laptop, started taking classes at an art school for product design and got an internship….that’s the cliff notes version.

M.I.S.S.:  What’s your favorite accessory that you’ve created?

That’s tough….my original favorites were the Swarovski bamboo earrings. I was first to flip them with the crystals on them…

M.I.S.S.:  Who do you want to work with and/or accessorize?

I really want to work more with other designers to create accessory lines for their collections. I don’t have any particular favorites per say, but I love the work of Fendi, Marni, Phillippe Starck (for products), etc.

M.I.S.S.:  What part of designing accessories is the most challenging and do you dislike the most?

The actual development of the products. Technical people love to tell me they cant make my designs, so it’s always a fight to convince and show them that it can be done.

M.I.S.S.:  Any advice for ladies who are just starting out in a career path similar to yours?

See yourself and show up everyday as you, unapologetically. As women we have to step into who we are and not let anyone or anything shake that. Pray hard, love hard, and work hard….you have to know you’re getting there.
