OWNER + HISTORY
HISTORY + OWNER PT. 1
Design De Amore once began as a graphic design studio in Phoenix, Arizona specializing in logos and branding. From there, we married our love for design with the thrilling world of fashion and entertainment.
Founder Melody Sanchez began her career as a graphic designer working in advertising agencies (ReThinc Advertising), public relations, apparel, and nationally published magazines in Los Angeles and San Francisco. During this time, she learned the various sides of the fashion and design industries working for companies such as Laufer Media (Tiger Beat & BOP Magazines), Tart Collections (clothing) and Samantha Slaven Publicity. Her love for branding and photo shoot coordinating blossomed and she often styled wardrobe for both look book and editorial shoots.
This unique skillset paired well with the fast-paced fashion and entertainment industries she loved and Melody soon began working back in Arizona for the Ford/ Robert Black Model and Talent Agency as the Director of New Faces and Development.
HISTORY + OWNER PT. 2
It was at Ford/ Robert Black Agency that Melody (pictured here) began working one-on-one with the models and talent: coordinating and styling various looks for talent portfolio shoots, consultations for social media management, as well as creating and maintaining the agency’s overall brand aesthetic.
She now works with the most notable talent in the industry ranging from photography, hair and makeup, wardrobe styling, and graphic design to provide the best in brand imagery for our fashion and lifestyle clients. We even offer one-on-one wardrobe and social media consultations as well as all-inclusive model portfolio shoots for talent (and aspiring talent) in order to kick-start professional careers and develop a more confident, “model you.” So, whether you’re a fashion or lifestyle brand looking to shoot your next collection, model looking to update your book or gain knowledge about the industry, or jewelry company looking to style your next social media campaign, we have all the tools you need to make your brand’s dream image into a reality.
