Did Melody Ehsani catch a case of keeping up with the Joneses after moving into the streetwear mecca of Melrose and Fairfax last year? After collabing with fellow hometown heroes Jeremy Scott and NCLA and scoring fans like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Yoncé, you'd think the LA jewelry designer was already at the top of her A-game, but it seems creating celeb-loved kitschy cool accoutrements was not enough. The fashionable four-eyed designer just dropped her first-ever apparel collection, titled "M.E.," now shoppable online and IRL at her Fairfax flagship (have you gotten winged and jeweled there yet?)
Priced from $44 to $68, the range was "inspired by the idea of introducing a new voice in fashion, as opposed to a new look," Ehsani says. Comprised of graphic print tees, cropped hoodies and sporty shirts, the stylish streetwear line is also entirely made in LA. Yup, definitely keeping up with the nabe. After the jump, see more from Ehsani's debut clothing collection.
