Melvin Nemenio came from the queen city of the south Cebu City, Philippines with the hopes of creating something meaningful. Since he was young, Melvin had dreamed of curating a business that produced easy-to-use, unique products accessible to everyone.
He spent countless hours thinking of the ways that he could touch people’s lives by providing them with the best products on the market, while connecting from an approachable yet aspirational point of view.
Melvin graduated in Bachelor of Fine Arts Major in Interior Design. Designing is more than a hobby for him. It’s a passion, the way he capture and celebrate life. Style is the only thing you can’t buy. It’s not in a shopping bag, a label, or a price tag. It’s something reflected from our soul to the outside world—an emotion.
