F L A T I R O N Women | Melissa Giuffrida

In this series, we team up a stellar collection of women who we admire for their unique personal style and the way they celebrate their individuality through what they wear.
We get to know them a little more and explore their take on FLATIRON.

Driven by a passion for authentic design, interior decorator Melissa Giuffrida, recently launched Collécte, an Australian marketplace purposely curated to offer pre-owned designer furniture and accessories.
Melissa's vision and integrity in a crowded industry is like a breath of fresh air. Her eye for beautiful pieces also speaks to our strong belief that personal style transcends from your wardrobe to your home.

A typical day in my life sees me... Getting kids off to school, a workout or a walk, and then off to work. My workday changes constantly from curating listings of new products, working on marketing campaigns, to analysing the daily reports! My day finishes in bed with a cup of tea and the latest book from book group – such great way to finish my day.

A career highlight has been starting my own business...Collécte. Collécte is something I have been working on for the last two years, and to see it actually come to life and launch in 2020 was an incredible feeling. I am incredibly grateful for all the positive support and interest I’ve had over the last six months; the experience has already exceeded my expectations.

I think the foundation pieces of any wardrobe are… Jeans, blazer and pants, white v-neck t-shirts, a good white shirt, sneakers and great pair of heels.

My style mantra is... Buy what suits you and what you feel comfortable in. I always like to add a pop of colour or some interest through accessories.

What I love about  FLATIRON is...  the fabrics and details; and that all pieces are designed and made here in Melbourne. The blue zebra shirt I purchased last year is still one of my favourites!

My favourite pieces in FLATIRON’s latest collection are... the wide leg linen pant in blue and the 'Sea Pool' bomber jacket.

In the design world I admire… all of the Australian furniture and lighting designers out there fighting IP Australia to protect their original designs from being copied and mass produced by mainstream retail chains.
What brings me JOY… Chatting to a customer who has just received delivery of a new piece is a thrill! Planning the next holiday with my family, catching up with friends or binge watching a great show on Netflix are all joyous to me.
I am excited about...the future! Being able to travel overseas again, growing Collécte and renovating my home.
