Bio:

MELISSA TOFTON IS ABOUT UNIQUE FUNCTIONAL DESIGN, LUXURY COOL DRESSING, LIFESTYLE AND CAREFULLY CONSTRUCTED CRAFTSMANSHIP. ANDROGYNOUS ELEMENTS JOIN FORCES WITH KINK AND CO EXIST ALONGSIDE EACH OTHER. DESIGNING FROM WITHIN OUT, CREATING TOOLS FOR EXPRESSION AND ALLOWING WOMEN TO CONVEY THEIR INDIVIDUAL EXPRESSION OF FEMININITY AND EMBODY THEIR OWN EROTIC DOMAIN. WITH A BACKGROUND IN TAILORING AND PROGRESSIVE KNITWEAR, TOFTON’S SIGNATURE ENERGY IS VISIBLE THROUGHOUT HER LINES. MOVING BETWEEN TAILORING, FUSING IT WITH BONDAGE WEAR AND APPLYING CRAFTSMANSHIP. THE RESULT IS ETHEREAL YET SUBVERSIVE SEDUCTIVE DRESSING. ALL PIECES ARE MADE IN THE UK, IN TOFTON’S LONDON STUDIO. THERE IS A STRONG FOCUS ON ETHICAL MANUFACTURING AND CONSCIOUS SOURCING; THE LEATHER, SUEDE AND SILK IS SOURCED FROM ETHICALLY MINDED SOURCES WITHIN EUROPE.
