Because of her innovative mind and determination, Brown knows that success is best measured by how far you’ve come with the talent you’ve been given. Which ultimately led to the growing empire she manages today Lux Lifestyle Event Inc.. 

Melisa’s idea for the “Lux Lifestyle Events” started while running her empire company The New York Fame which produces fashion week events in NY during NY Fashion Week for top designers around the world, such as Bravo TV’s The Fashion Show, Season 1 finalist Reco Chapple, Korto Momolu winner of the 5th season of Bravo’s hit show Project Runway, and Stevie Boi  who’s designs have been worn by the likes of Lady GaGa, Teyanna Taylor, Lisa Raye, Meagan Good,Michelle Rodriguez, Rosa Acosta, Dawn Richards, &  Eva Marcille to name a few.

My Philosophy

Trust

Trust is a fundamental but intangible dimension in the relationship between a planner and her clients.
I always invite my prospects to meet me in person or to fix a video chat as soon as possible to check the chemistry between us!
As I’ll supervise every aspect of your event, be it the overall vision, the budget or the planning , trust is a must. Your trust allows me to persistently do my best! No trust, no party!

Style is equilibrium

My vision of style takes inspiration from the neoclassical concept of “perfect beauty” as a result of equilibrium. The organization of a sophisticated event requires a balanced mix of details, elements and style. I’ll make it my challenge to offer a higher level of personalization by attending to my client’s wishes, ideas and passions! Equilibrium results from the combination of your wishes, the beauty and elegance of your venu and my touch!

Calm and smile

Planning, coordinating and managing can be extremely distressing. A positive attitude and empathy are the invaluable assets which allow me to reassure even the most apprehensive bride!

Passion

Job without passion is something extremely frustrating.
That’s all!

AVAILABILITY & PRIVACY

24/7 availability is the key to Customer satisfaction. The promptness of my replies sometimes surprises my clients. This said, please, don’t forget jet-lag!
The protection of your private sphere is of utmost importance to me and I’ll safeguard your confidentiality.

Whether you are planning the most stunning wedding of the season, a romantic and intimate ceremony, a gorgeous birthday party or a corporate gala dinner, I can contribute with joy, style and efficacy.

If we’re fine-tuned on what above, it’s a good starting point!

Tailor-Made

Tailor-made!

If each client is unique then why shouldn’t each event be unique?
Since the first meeting with my clients I have a target in mind: every single element of the event has to reflect their taste and their vision. A new project is a great challenge and I immediately start creating a mood-board to represent the key elements of the events: colors, inspirations, materials…


But a flawless event isn’t only made of beautiful flowers and a spectacular light project…
Logistic and timing need to be addressed too;
that’s why LUX LIFESTYLE  project takes care of everything since day one!

Between the first meeting and the project presentation, I’ll select the best-matching team of flowers-stylists, musicians, craftsmen… that will allow me to turn your wishes into reality.

Is it better a NY/FL/LA-based fashion flowers-stylist, or a romantic and vintage-style flower-designer based on the Lake?

From the most exclusive caterer to the fusion-cuisine local Chef; from the famous deejay or band, to the violinist Theatre musicians, I’ll come up with the best team.


As Project Leader, I’ll select, brief and coordinate its members. I like so much teamwork!
What an enriching experience is to share different know-hows and expertise with a common goal in mind:
EXCELLENCE!
Step by step, I’ll lead you towards your “one-of-a-lifetime” day. I’ll do my best to escort you in a funny and exciting process whose milestones will be the food and flowers trial, the inspections and the rehearsal.
Since the beginning you’ll have a clear idea of the ongoing organizational process.
