Melody recently spent some time looking back through her archives, and she realized there was a trove of prints that she had been saving for something special. Like a vintage cabinet full of treasures, she began assembling the prints into a collection. Curio is reminiscent of wandering into a dressing room of a bygone era, sifting through vanity drawers, and exploring the visual layers of paper packaging, textiles, and special fragrance bottles.
Melody Miller grew up in the Lowcountry of South Caroline, quite possible the prettiest place on earth. Later, she felt as much at home in New York City, where she studied industrial design at Pratt Institute, and her love for vintage objects began. She found her way to fabric design and designed numerous collections for Kokka fabrics. In 2013 she dreamed up the idea of Cotton+Steel and became one of the five founding designers.
