On tonight’s all-new episode of Siesta Key, Juliette Porter is making moves – fashion-wise, that is. For her first assignment as Ashley Hutson’s new assistant, Juliette is putting on a fashion show for Melina Harris’ label, HAMEL. Keep reading below for more details on the big event, plus get to know Melina, and how successful her clothing label is.
What happens on tonight’s episode for Juliette?
Juliette is moving past the boy drama with ex Alex Kompo and focusing on work. She’s got a new job as Florida fashion entrepreneur Ashley Hutson’s assistant, and her first big assignment? Putting together a fashion show! The client is Melina Harris, the creator of HAMEL, a luxury dress line.
Juliette is tasked with finding models, inviting the “who’s who” in Siesta Key, as well as the event’s aesthetics. From hanging lights to finding the perfect high heels, she’s in charge of everything! No pressure, right? Melina’s a pretty big client of Ashley’s, so can Juliette deliver a faux-pas free show?
She checked models off the list, as she gathered Kelsey Owens and Madisson Hausburg to walk on the runway with her. You can see them in their HAMEL gowns from tonight’s episode below:
She invited a few of her Siesta Key castmates to fill in seats, including Garrett Miller, JJ Mizell, and Amanda Marie Miller. She even put aside her Alex drama to invite his mother, Beth Kompothecras, to the event, as Beth is big into fashion. Very professional move on Juliette’s part!
So, who is Melina Harris? Get more details on the HAMEL designer:
Melina Harris created her label HAMEL as a fashion house with which women could be inspired by eternal beauty. According to the company’s official website, that was Melina’s hope in creating HAMEL. She wanted her designs to be luxurious, but also comfortable, as Melina herself traveled a lot. The dresses can fit into luggage if needed, and are great to wear out at big evening events.
Originally from Serbia, Melina made her American fashion debut at Miami Beach’s Fashion Week for their FUNKSHION event. Since then, she splits her time between Belgrade (the Serbian capital), Miami, and Cannes with her two kids and husband, Haris.
Ever since her journey began almost 5 years ago, Melina’s designs have made a significant mark on Hollywood: major celebrities have worn her dresses! Those include: Jennifer Lopez, Ashlee Simpson-Ross, The Bachelorette‘s Hannah Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Nashville‘s Connie Britton, Victoria Justice, and Olivia Culpo. You can see them all below:
