Step into the Colorful World of Melissa

Jane   30 Oct , 2014  

I first discovered the Brazilian shoe brand Melissa online. After a few months, two of the owners (Joanna Co-Fong and Vida Chua, then both singles) got in touch with me and presented me with these candy-colored jelly shoes. This was about eight to ten years ago, when I was still heading a magazine.

I can’t believe that this brand is already on its 35th year! Imagine that… and to think these jelly shoes arrived in our shores just less than ten years ago.

So sad that I missed the event, but glad that my co-bloggers Keri and Rikki were able to join in on the celebrations. Held at the Atrium of SM Aura Premier, a travel-inspired event (with a fashion show and 3D photo wall installations) entertained the guests all throughout the night.

The displays were nothing short of amazing!
