She is also one of the two curators of What's Good ?!, a pop culture newsletter with an inclusive insight.
Since fall 2018, Melody has co-taught a course called "Fashion & actualities" at L'École de la Chambre Syndicale (now part of L'Institut Français de la Mode) with fellow journalist and friend Alice Pfeiffer. The education course focuses on the different challenges fashion is facing nowadays, from cultural appropriation, to the new definition of gender, and sustainability too.
Melody lives in Paris but often gives in to her deep affection for Italy where she escapes to at every opportunity. She also loves Italian cinema and food, is always reading a few books at a time, and can't stop herself from buying fashion and art magazines!
We shot Melody at Les Grands Voisins in the 14th arrondissement. A multidisciplinary space where you can find restaurants, boutiques, co working spaces, kid areas, art galleries and artisanal activities.
