Thier latest campaign The Astral Plane featuring Dree Hemingway, led me to discover the talented duo behind the collection. Australian art director and stylist duo Melanie Kamsler and Tamila Purvis joined forces in 2009 to launch MANIAMANIA to, what I would of expected, instant attention from international press and retailers. Melanie is an experienced art director who has worked on various titles such as Vogue Australia, Oyster Magazine and most importantly which led to the beginning for the duo, Russh, this is where Melanie met stylist Tamila Purvis, the pair soon discovered a synergy of style, inspiration and influences. Tamila is one of Australia's most established stylists, and acted as Fashion Editor at Russh Magazine for several years from its inception, with Melanie as Art Director. The pair came to work together again in 2008 when they decided to fuse their aesthetic version into a jewelry line.
