Immortalia by ManiaMania
Australian art director and stylist duo Melanie Kamsler and Tamila Purvis joined forces in 2009 to launch MANIAMANIA to 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 notably Russh Magazine, where Melanie met stylist Tamila Purvis and 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, along with Melanie as Art Director. The pair came to work together again in 2008 when they decided to fuse their aesthetic vision into a jewellery line, MANIAMANIA.
MANIAMANIA’s collections have been aptly described as “mystical adornment for modern times”. Each piece is a unique sculptural creation, using elements of magic and mysticism, alongside pop culture references as inspiration. MANIAMANIA’s pieces always have a story to tell, or symbolic meaning, making them feel alive and powerful to wear. In an emerging niche between costume and fine jewellery, the collections are sculpturally crafted out of silver and brass and are adorned with rough and faceted crystals. The pieces have a hand made and original look that makes each piece ‘one of a kind’.
MANIAMANIA has received notable coverage from US and Australian Vogue, V Magazine, W Magazine, New York Times, Interview, and Russh. Clients include Abbey Lee Kershaw, Dree Hemingway, Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Chloë Sevigny, Alexa Chung, Devendra Banhart and Alison Mosshart.
