Known for her distinctive approach that spans both interiors and sustainable fashion, Melissa has built a career from turning pain into purpose. Oui Carole has grown from a hobby to an e-commerce destination that celebrates the art of intentional living.
As an established fashion stylist and TV Personality, Melissa spent over 15 years as a celebrity style. She used ceramics to connect to her mother's favorite creative medium. She designs inspirational and gracefully functional clay-ware that reflects a timeless aesthetic. With an eye for understated elegance and in celebration of her mother's spirit, she hand-builds, hand-throws and crochets each one-of-a-kind pieces in downtown Los Angeles. Melissa continues to study how ritual objects elevate everyday experiences. She often travels throughout abroad to shop vintage and meet with communities to research the use of objects in ceremonial traditions.
It is her belief that focusing on small curated batches and encouraging clients shop sustainable fashion is living in alignment with purpose. Appreciating the importance of piece each is what makes OUI Carole unique.
