Viva Las Vegas with Melissa Kaye

When it comes to designer Melissa Kaye, I always think of the famous Shakespeare quote, “Though she be but little, she is fierce!” As mentioned in a previous post here on COUTUREmusings, Melissa is an amateur boxer. So while she might look petite and unassuming, I’ve already committed to never messing with her (incidentally, she’s way too nice to ever want to mess with, but still!). We tracked down this Design Atelier artist to find out how she Vivas Las Vegas!
