Mele + Marie

Mele + Marie elegant minaudière evening bags and accessories is a hallmark in haute couture fashion shows and red-carpet events around the world.

A minaudière is a fashion accessory for women – an evening bag and a jewellery at the same time. It is a carrying case for a lady’s essential and personal items while attending an event.

The minaudière appeared during the 1930s. Its invention is being attributed to Charles Arpels, of the famed Van Cleef & Arpels, but many jewellers and haute couture designers have created their own models.

Crafted with purpose and commitment to God’s word, each Mele + Marie has an inspiring story behind it.

For the Silent Auction, Mele + Marie, headed by its husband and wife team – designer Melecio Oamil and Rosemarie Almayda, graciously donated 10 one-of-a-kind, handcrafted, haute couture minaudière evening bags and four jewellery pieces.

Mele + Marie: Creative Chemistries

MELE + MARIE offers meticulously crafted, high-end collection of evening bags and jewelry pieces.

Conceived by Head Designer Melecio Oamil Jr, the collections centralize on architectural shapes and unusual but natural raw materials. It bears the message of victory and restoration in life, inspired by the challenges that he and his family has conquered.

Melecio and his wife, Rosemarie entered the business of exporting accessories from Cebu to provide for their eldest child’s medical needs who was born with 3 holes in her heart.

They continued to pray unceasingly and joined trade fairs abroad and were able to close numerous deals. From there, God started filling their coffers enabling them to do more, help more, and also travel the world.

They experienced numerous ups and downs, but they stayed faithful. In their prayer quiet time, they received the message that the Lord wanted them to “create bags”.
In 2012, they created a product line of bags and accessories that mirrors the adversities and triumphs in their lives.
The Hannah bag, named after their first-born Hannah Micaela, has undergone several iterations to come out seamless and flawless but functional enough to carry the MILCK items – Mobile phones, Identification cards, Lipstick, Credit cards and Keys.

Their creative collaboration gave rise to their presence in all the major fashion shows in Paris, New York, Dubai and many other European countries.

Now a global brand, the husband and wife team responsible for the success of MELE + MARIE have not forgotten their roots and continue to do more for the local communities.

MELE + MARIE’s pieces are works of art, with each piece reflecting the journey of life, faith, and living out one’s purpose out of the overflow of God’s abundant blessings.

Hannah Minaudière – Carrier of Triumphs

A simply elegant bag that gave birth to the Mele + Marie brand.
