Our Ultimate Femme Fatale Melissa-Holdbrook
How she got started?
Melissa Holbrooke-Akposoe started her career as a stylist.
She had always been interested in fashion and wondered whether to go into fashion buying or styling.
Styling inspired her the most. She considers herself an artist using clothes and photography to tell a story.
She went to University, and soon after graduation delved into her career as a stylist.
She has kept a blog of her outfits and lifestyle since 2010.
✩'Don’t be afraid to tell people how they’ve made you feel. If you don’t you’ll end up resenting them.'
✩'Just because you can’t do something now that you feel you’re meant to be able to do, doesn’t mean you’re never going to be able to conquer it.'
