About Melanie Porter

Melanie Porter is a graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martin's College in London.She spent 10 years working as a knitwear designer for a number of international fashion brands before turning her expertise to furniture in 2008.

Her work is now sold at prestigious department store Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and lifestyle boutique Wolf
